Initially, our Quezon City Site celebrated the account's 1st Year Anniversary at Dolce Superclub. Our main site of course, in Makati City, did not let the sister site end as glamorous as they did. LOL. And with this, our Makati Site Satellite TV project who turned three (3) held the event at another prestigious place - at Robot Bar & Restaurant Lounge. Let me greet everyone and congratulate everybody for a wonderful job all throughout the years! All this success is not possible if not because of everyone's hard work (ehem, sounds familiar?) Being in a sales program is not easy but it's definitely a fun work environment, especially as we serve a premium account, which is truly a hardcore sales account! Yeah! So Happy 3 Years for us!
We've planned everything in about a month's time but the location didn't come into the picture until the actual week before the set date, due to non-availability of the amenities we prefer from several bars we've pre-selected. And with a Food Tasting Event held in cooperation with the bar management, we've settled for Robot. The food was amazing and that really sold us the thought to hold the event there. And last November 25, 2011, VXI's premier sales account - the main site, our project, has already celebrated its 3rd Year Anniversary.
VXI is a known leader in providing business process and information technology outsourcing offering comprehensive services to its clients.

Approximately 250 guests were present, from sales consultants to our VIPs. Everyone had fantastic outfit! The much awaited part of our event is the awarding of course, and the surprise presentation from our beloved team leaders. The theme was just in time for the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn movie. My dear SME (Subject Matter Expert) team led the way to make this materialize in the event. Everyone was encouraged to dress up in black, red, or white.

I won't be showcasing the food anymore as I've reserved that already (my food review) on another blog post. Check out our Food Tasting Event a few days prior to our actual party. (^_^)
Nobody had the guts to dress up as Edward, Bella, nor Jacob though haha. I guess they were too shy to get outshined by their colleagues. LOL.
Our folks simply enjoyed the night. I'm glad they were all happy and the feedback I'm getting is overwhelming with positive notes. There are a few missing items though but still, it's rather successful. Much thanks to my team as well for the hard work and all efforts to make this happen! Woot! The programme did not run as planned (as a whole) but with everyone getting whacky, we added a few portions to stir more fun. With that, a dance challenge was held. Pot money was collected which unfortunately was shouldered by our leaders (LOLZ ... kidding!) This is all for the benefit of our sales consultants and their enjoyment.
|Teach Me How To Dougie ...|
|Our sales consultants enjoying the Dance Challenge|
Our Team Leaders were also very participative and they prepared ... primarily the MALE members of the group to serenade everybody with a song & dance number ... this time with the song KATAWAN ... I bet this was the best part of the intermission numbers. Everyone was all laughs!
|TLs Kiko Barrameda, Rheign Hernandez, Michael Baua, Elwin Abarro,|
John Paunil, Dominic Pareja, and Guilbert Diaz ... KATAWAN!
|All the ladies enjoying the KATAWAN performance. LOL.|
As promised, we had our awarding ceremonies too. This included our Yearly Performance Awards with a tribute to the best sales consultants all throughout the year; and some Fun Awards recognizing poll / survey feedback.

The whole location was good enough to house everybody and help us all relax and enjoy the event. There are lots of good "locations" within the venue though, which became favorites for photo shoots. Of course, everyone loves a good souvenir, right? Here are the "spots" where all the scenes happen ... LOL.

I just can't find a good shot of the crystallized and mirror-decked washroom area yet ... there are lots online but I wanna use our shot hehe.

All thanks as well, of course, to our dear mentor / leader / and big boss, January ... who have led us thus far, at this point, reaching our third year milestone.

The one that has set everybody on to party mode was the ever-changing lights at Robot Bar. The dominant disco lights / balls seen in other bars is nowhere to be found, as other folks looked for. But this alternative is much more fun! Everybody really adapted to it as well and loved it, instead of looking for techno disco lights. The colors hype up the whole place. They light up the runway too or the main stage area where our mini-fashion show was also ... kinda held! :p The catwalk area seems much more fun with these lights. Everyone enjoyed their own catwalk in their fashion-forward scenes!

Everyone loves posing for the cam!
I am still searching for some photos we took if we were able to capture the lovely flooring they have. It's made of glass or glass-like material (sorry if I dunno what it's exactly called). It's one of the "attractions" as well for this place, I bet. It's not slippery too, considering that all girls were in high heels and top fashion, it wouldn't be nice if we all slip, right? Hehe.
The night had lovely DJs too and take note, they're both girls. That's another PLUS point for our folks hehe. They're super pretty and sexy too ... all our boys seem to get double the fun lah~ And not just the boys but the other girls ... uhmm, I'd say members of the LGBT I guess. Hehe. They have cool macs! (^_^)
Of course, I didn't let the opportunity pass without a "photoshoot" too hehe but I dun wanna bombard you with my solo shots. LOLZ. I ain't a model and I'm too-chubby to be one harharhar~ But I surely love photoshoots hehe.
The open bar did give another spice to our folks. They enjoyed all drinks as we stated and finalized in our Food Tasting Event and since not everyone drinks (like me - I only got my complimentary drinks of iced tea and soda hehe).
|Me with our sales consultants|
Still, the folks loved it! They didn't mind the white background. They all cared about the picture and the souvenir they'd get right away hehe. It's a night to remember! Everyone looked lovely of course.
As part of the Client Services Management Team, of course, my work doesn't just concentrate on making the business clients happy. One of my priorities is of course, making our own people happy. I believe I was able to achieve that too, with the help of our team, in this event. In here, they had SATISFACTION ... guaranteed! (^_^) And that makes me happy too.
