We were pleased to shoot a poker themed corporate function in Sydney last week at which there were some cracking prizes for those who amassed the most chips. A bottle of Penfold’s Grange for the runner up is a pretty good second prize if you ask me!
We thought it was a great idea for getting staff and clients mixing and socialising without it feeling like a networking event as every round saw players switch tables and meet someone new with every poker hand. There was a great mix of novices and ‘expert’ players and it was quite entertaining to watch the players with a gameplan get knocked out fairly early on and for the novices to sail through to the next round each time without really knowing what they were doing.
As well as offering us the chance to get plenty of candid photos of clients and staff playing and chatting, it also offered plenty of opportunity for photos of staff posed with clients and probably few soon-to-be clients as the mood definitely got more jovial as the night wore on. I’m sure the photos will be hitting inboxes soon!
