"Thanks and Smell the Christmas Tree!" (2013)

While the upcoming year end season will mean different things to all of us, it will no doubt be a time of reflection and thanks after a somewhat challenging year.

Let all of us be thankful for the challenges 2013 has presented as they will make us stronger, wiser and more determined. With the negativity and indifference that has surrounded us it is important to step back, "smell the Christmas Tree" and realise how lucky we all are.

So, as you celebrate Christmas, Summer, the year end or that break you so badly deserve, give thanks. Thanks for all the relationships you have made or continued; thanks for the wonderful staff, customers, suppliers and workmates you have; thanks for the opportunities this fantastic country presents us with.

We at TEAM thank all our new and loyal clients for their support during 2013. We look forward to continuing and advancing our relationship in 2014 and as such wish you all a safe, invigorating and enjoyable Christmas and New Year.



It's nearly that time of year once more. A time for giving and receiving, over indulgence and reflection.

Christmas is a perfect opportunity for catching up with friends and family, for taking a well-earned break and preparing ourselves for the New Year. It is traditionally a time of goodwill and celebration that transcends race, creed and religion in today's society.

This is an ideal time to reflect upon the peaks and troughs of the past year, to offer words of thanks for the achievements and efforts of your employees, after all, these people are a valued asset that are intrinsic to your everyday business and continued success.

We here at TEAM wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope that you have a safe, prosperous and happy New Year!

As we all looked toward the winners of last years 'Hot August Night' Trivia function, there was trepidation in the air. Could they win it again?

The turnout this year was fantastic and we appreciate the contribution and feedback of the attendees. Again the evening consisted of five rounds of questions and plenty of food and drink to sustain the Quizzers.

Last years winners could not win again and unfortunately they received the wooden spoon. Who would have thought! Certainly a surprise to us all!

Congratulations to our winners, Rhine Ruhr, The Pressure Men. Boy, did they put the pressure on! Winning by 7 points.

There were some hilarious answers we thought we would share:

In answer to the question "what was the name of Victoria's Treasurer during Kennett's Premiership?" one team replied "Robbie Williams"!!

John Linnett was referred to as "John 'The Silver Fox' Linnett"! Chris Cullen was referred to as "Tall guy with goatee (no hair)" and Megan Smith was confused with Alan Allebone. She was not impressed!

The Mud Mosque in Djenne, Africa was confused with the well known "Sacred Fort of Rwanda (where Osama is Hiding)"!!

Thank you to all for your participation. We trust that you enjoyed the social occasion away from your working environment, the laughs, the friendly rivalry and the opportunity to showcase your talents.

We are looking forward to again hosting a successful evening next "Hot August Night".
