Jaffer HEIS Team once again came together in high spirits for its 4th Annual Meetup on 16th of August 2020. This event is well awaited by the team every year. This year the celebration was a little different, due to the onset of COVID 19 pandemic, the entire team rather than coming over at one venue, gathered in their respective regions, precisely on 8 different locations. The entire team sported a white T-shirt/shirt to convey solidarity in these unprecedented times. The safety precautions and social distancing protocols were well observed throughout the event. Making use of collaboration technology, MS Teams the regional teams connected with each other in an interactive and engaging setup. The meetup agenda was directed from the Head Office in Karachi.
Our full day of informative and engaging sessions started with a keynote speech from our Group Chairman Mr. Nasser Jaffer followed by an insightful talk from our COO Mr. Nadir Jaffer. Our Business Unit Head Mr. Shakeel Ahmed shared the performance review for the year 2019 – 2020 followed by a talk on our objectives and aspirations for the current year. The best was saved for the last…. yes we did setup an Awards Ceremony to recognize and applaud the high achievers in the team. The winners in all different regions were awarded shields by their respective team leads and the entire team did not fall short of giving out applauds and encouraging remarks for their winning peers.
Except for a few connectivity issues here and there and a few glitches, the event was a success and counted for an experience like none other. Hopefully, when we all beat this pandemic, the memories of the event will surely be cherished by the team. We greatly value the effort of our back-office support team and the managing committee, who invested their time and effort in putting together a novel event like this and a special thanks to our BU Head Shakeel sb, for giving us the direction and encouragement to make this event happen despite all odds.
As they say, you can’t make a high jump without high spirits. We are glad that despite this time being one of the toughest times for the human race, our team’s spirit is high and we continue to maintain a positive outlook towards the future, which is the first step towards success. Here are some of the shots captured during the event.
