25wat away, aka Chillout Camp #1
We took it easy. We closed the office for 3 days. We turned on the autopilot in our rocket and went to Chillout Camp # 1 with business friends: the IKONA production house, the software house of KYOTU Technology, and cybersecurity specialists – Titans24.
It was our first trip in such a large team. 10 people joined us last year and today the 25wat’s crew consists of 35 specialists. Moreover, it was also the first integration of the partners’ business teams: IKONA studio , Titans24 , KYOTU Technology and 25wat agency .
We are four companies that create the business ecosystem – said Mateusz Romanów, CEO, co-founder of 25wat and Titans24, during the integration. – Our teams complement each other nicely. That is why I am glad that we are here together and that new companies and new teams have joined the September 25wat integration meetings, which are already a tradition.
What is about this whole camp?
Gabi Czesak, co-founder of 25wat, puts it like this: There has been so much going on in the last few months that – I can say – we’ve moved up to a higher level. Now we can catch our breath. We focus on chill and fun.
Besides, we had more than enough reasons to flee to the countryside.
- We wanted to spend time together in a way that is not always possible in everyday work. Stay together, away from the hustle and bustle in beautiful natural circumstances.
- Of course, we wanted to charge the batteries 😉
- To catch the moment! Take advantage of the favorable moment – still good weather, a pandemic in a slight retreat (by the way: we are all vaccinated!) – to catch the flow, to enjoy the community that we create and which we longed for in all these months of remote and hybrid work.
- We wanted to get to know each other better and feel our cosmic vibe 😉 Our dream team is getting bigger. We have so many joint projects with Titans24, KYOTU Technology, and the IKONA studio. We support, complement, and inspire each other. And we have one motto #ZEROBULLSH!T 😊
But also eat well, sleep well, be warm in the sun… and win JIMMY JAB GAMES.
It had to work out
We wanted to be together, and we were – in pairs, in small groups, in our everyday teams, in teams with incredible line-ups. Those who wanted to explore the countryside wandered around the Land of Extinct Volcanoes. And those who did not want to – rode a dinghy on the Bóbr.
We talked. We practiced yoga and walked barefoot in the wet grass with dew. We hugged local dogs and other animals. We drank coffee and admired those who woke up for the yogi greeting the sun. We listened to the country silence (with the quacking and crowing of a rooster in the background 😉) and enjoyed the views from the hill behind the barn. We played board games. We ate sausages and halloumi cheese from the fire. We joked (all the time) and listened to the music (also in spontaneous “live” performances after midnight 😉).
We had an explosion of creativity and quality in the form of a memorable event – The Voice of Dobków. There was spontaneous singing in the barn and competition on vocals with the unrivaled host Gracjan aka Graco Majchrzak (our Digital Graphic Designer).
We had a fierce fight against unforeseen twists and turns at the JIMMY JAB GAMES Games. New quality (not quantity) and total agile 😉
For someone to chill, someone has to work…
As you know, everything that is good… also ends one day. Our Chillout Camp #1 as well. But we are already planning another one – at the same time next year.
