Le Nordik: Certified #Outaouaisfun, even for business meetings
#ThatTime… we got away to the nordik to improve our productivity at work.
I won’t deny that with all the festivities around #Gatineau2017 and #Canad150, the Outaouais Tourism team put in a lot of overtime. That’s why, once the excitement of the 150th celebrations had died down, we decided to organize a retreat to review what we’d accomplished, talk about what still needed to be done, and identify areas for improvement.
And so it was that last October 2, several staff members hit the road for Nordik Spa-Nature in Chelsea for a workday that was intense, but far from dull! We were prepared for long hours and a lot of brainstorming, but the setting was so gorgeous that the time passed quickly and enjoyably.
To give you an idea, here’s where we had our morning coffee. Things were looking good!
A VERSATILE MEETING VENUE
Once everyone had arrived and had consumed enough caffeine to get through the morning without dozing off (we’re a bunch of coffeeholics), we gathered in the meeting room of Alpina Lodge to tackle quite a long agenda. We had no time to waste!
Admittedly, we did take a well-deserved break to get a breath of fresh air, refill our coffee mugs, and relax in the Alpina Lodge lounges. In a place like that, how could we resist?
Before we knew it, it was lunchtime! We decided to eat outside, on the large terrace. Soup and salad, delicious sandwiches, and desserts with just the right touch of decadence, all prepared, served and cleared away by the Nordik team. No dishes to stack or wash—what bliss!
As you can imagine, after our lunch al fresco we had a little trouble getting motivated to pick up our meeting where we’d left off. But once we’d taken our seats around the conference table, we slipped back into our pre-lunch productive mode in no time.
MEETING’S OVER—TIME FOR THE SPA!
At the end of the work day, we took advantage of the beautiful location and ideal weather to enjoy cocktails outdoors. What a great way to toast a job well done!
Some of us were keen to experience North America’s largest Scandinavian spa. All I can say is: WOW! It’s amazingly relaxing and enjoyable.
Good to know: When you rent a lodge at Nordik Spa-Nature in Chelsea, whether for business or pleasure, you get your own sauna and jacuzzi!
After our intense but extremely enjoyable workday at Nordik’s Alpina Lodge, we all agreed that Nordik is definitely certified #OutaouaisFun!
