Surprise, surprise! On 17.11.203, we surprised our senior partners Harald Fugmann and Martin Janotta with a party at Wasserwerk Berlin. The theme: “Land ahoy!” The occasion: The more or less close change of course in the professional careers of both of them — a kind of stroke into shallow waters called retirement.
However, the event was not intended to be a purely sentimental look into the past. Instead, we wanted to celebrate today and look optimistically into the future of the office. Family, friends, numerous office companions and, of course, the entire FJP team were invited. Harald and Martin were stunned when they entered the room unsuspectingly and 180 guests cheered. In addition to all the unexpected faces, the evening was full of a colourful programme as well as culinary delights.
However, the event was not supposed to be a purely sentimental look into the past. Instead, we wanted to celebrate the present together and look optimistically into the future of FJP. Family, friends, numerous office companions and, of course, the entire FJP team were invited. Harald and Martin were amazed when they entered the room unsuspectingly and were cheered loudly by 180 guests. In addition to all the surprising faces, the evening also offered culinary delights and a colourful programme.
Our dedicated team furnished the location with several themed stations. In addition to reminiscences of legendary 90s office parties, there was a memory lane with personal messages from many guests. A work table with almost forgotten work equipment from the 80/90s, a project-highlight show and a slide-show booth with snapshots from four decades of office life were also set up. Furthermore, the guests were also treated to some live entertainment. After anecdotes from some long-time companions, the Berlin Vokalisten Gemeinschaft Choir (BVG) performed. Even the FJP team took the opportunity to serenade Harald and Martin. The evening flew by enjoying pleasant conversation, drinks and catchy music. For sure, some people went home afterwards with the certainty that, even if land is already in sight, the sailing trip will be far from over.
