they will forget what you have done,
but people will never forget
what you have made them feel.“

Hekatron Anniversary Celebration. "By Hekatron for Hekatron"If you work hard you should celebrate hard. Thus Hekatron instructed us to produce an event which would be a unique experience for all the staff, to celebrate the company's 50th birthday. All the staff, from apprentices to the managing director, should enjoy an evening together. The event was to take place on the sports ground next to the company.
First of all we had to arrange all the required permits; then we could begin. Five days before the celebration we began to erect a 1500 square metre marquee, with completely new facilities and equipment inside and out. For entertainment we thought up an absolutely unique show programme..........
In the run up to the event, we cast, briefed and rehearsed the staff. On the night of the celebration they then had their great performance with brass bands, sketches, film and flash mob – everything by staff for staff. This event welded the workers even more firmly together and generated an emotional "us" feeling that will last for a long time.
