It was a sunny and eventful day the 5th of September 2015 when Chillibreeze scheduled a Family Orientation Program for parents and families of newbies of the Chillibreeze family. The guests were assembled in the preset Conference room for the presentation and discussions to roll (begin) and the program started at about 10:00 AM.
With a clear mind about the day’s agenda – to convey and communicate Chillibreeze’s mission and vision – all present were welcomed and greeted to the program by the Managers and Team Leader’s.
The presentation was initiated by Charity – the program facilitator – about Chillibreeze, its mission and vision statements that clearly struck the audience’s focus immediately and won their attention. This was followed by presentations and a walkthrough the roles, responsibilities and real life experiences by fellow and tenured members of Chillibreeze – who were Leeneth, Henry, Ibansara and Steward.
Charity ensured there was enough time between the presentations to seek for questions and clarify them and other doubts on the spot.
Finally, it was our final presenter’s turn – who is none other than our Founder and CEO – Ralph Budelman. Ralph started by applauding the presenters and the facilitator on their confidence and presentation skills. It was exemplary of him to accompany us on this program and he definitely stormed the presentation starting with his journey in India and the beginning of Chillibreeze. Although his attempt at speaking khasi was feeble, it was however admirable and was indeed a crowd pleaser. He was focused on sharing the core mantra of Chillibreeze i.e “Yes We Can” or in khasi “Haoid Ngi Lah Ban Leh” which profoundly resonated with the audience.
After the presentation, the podium was taken over by Sissy – one of our Team Leader’s and Trainer – to call upon and share about each of those trainees who have made it to the next level. The appointment of four Probationers was announced and their respective family members were called to come forward and hand over the Appointment Letters to them which sure did boost their morale.
The program concluded and everyone was given a tour of Chillibreeze before heading to the kitchen for some refreshments. The light snacks did serve purposeful as it allowed everyone to interact with each other and fellow CBer’s.
The day was well spent and if there was an instrument to measure the smiles and joy of everyone present that day – we would have ran out of numbers!
