2002 – 2017: Over the Word, Lyon-based financial and legal translation specialist, celebrates its 15-year anniversary
Creating a company is always a huge challenge – but once established, the biggest challenge of all is figuring out how to remain successful over the long term. Needless to say, Over the Word was immensely proud to celebrate its 15-year anniversary at the end of September this year.
And what better way to celebrate than a weekend at the beautiful Château de Pizay, just north of Villefranche-sur-Saône in the world-renowned Beaujolais region of France?
The first item on the agenda was a team-building session organised by Cuisine de Fred, in which three teams of OTW employees went head-to-head in a competition à la Masterchef. With only five minutes of thinking time and one hour to work their magic, the teams made a series of verrines using only the surprise ingredients selected for them by their host. Of course, Fred was also kind enough to share some of his secrets with us. Putting their teamwork to the test, our translators, sales team and project managers engaged in lively discussions and even acquired some new culinary techniques. Later, we had the chance to taste our gastronomic creations with a celebratory glass of champagne.
