The QuadSAT team has just returned home to Denmark after a week saying at a historic house in the Bjerkreim region of Norway.
The time away from our Danish base was well-spent, with a main focus on team-building and group brainstorming.
The Bjerkreim region has rich history and personal ties to our CEO Joakim Espeland. It was fascinating for the team to learn about the local area and gain insight into Joakim’s roots and heritage.
Arguably the most prominent team-building exercise during the week was when the team tackled the hike up to Preikestolen, a famous cliff-top viewpoint which sits a whopping 604 metres above the water of the Lysefjord below.
Over 150,000 people make the climb up to Preikestolen or “Pulpit Rock” each year due to the beautiful scenery and the challenging nature of the hike.
The hike was a 4 hour return walk, navigating steep, rocky stairs, but the team helped each other though with constant encouragement, pushing each other to reach the summit.
Additionally, the team took advantage of the opportunity to get back to nature, exploring local landscapes on foot, swimming in the pristine lakes of the area, chopping wood and fishing for our evening grills.
We got some fantastic work done and we all feel we have now become an even stronger team unit.
