World Cup 2014 fever has hit the team at McDonald Butler. This week, we began the countdown to the biggest football tournament. We anxiously anticipated the sweepstake draw hoping for the best – though you should never underestimate the underdog. The office also had a slight face lift with a poster dedicated to Team MBA United with a full fixture list!
You may be able to spot a few familiar faces including CEO & Founder Maeve McDonald, MD Mike Butler (holding onto the cup) and our Operations Director Spencer Marlow. So far the team have resisted from drawing on the faces but it’s just a matter of time until somebody does. Find out more about the team here.
We hosted our very own penalty shoot out in true Brazilian street style but in Wandsworth! The mighty Client Services vs Shared Services. I’d like to say it was a tough victory for the Shared Services team but they managed to thump our account managers and directors by a whopping 5-0!
Finally we celebrated delicacies from across the world with our very own MBA picnic on the terrace as we enjoyed the best of the British summer weather. The team all shared food and drink representing the country they picked in the sweepstake. Take a look at the mouth-watering treats – from Columbian coffee, American jam doughnuts, tortilla chips from Mexico to French brie, crossaints and meatballs from Bosnia.
The next few weeks will be a roller-coaster as we go through the ups and downs. We of course will be supporting our home nation and look forward to a wonderful and memorable summer (if the weather holds).
