We live and breathe swimwear, but you know what we’re even more passionate about? Giving you the best swim experience possible. And that’s exactly what we talked about at our company-wide meeting held alongside the Hudson River at New York City’s Chelsea Piers. With our successful, fully redesigned website up and running, we turned our focus to planning an even better 2013.
We kicked off the day by swapping our favorite swim stories, and boy, did we get to know our co-workers better! We won’t name names, but someone lost her suit while waterskiing while another played water polo professionally. One brave male staffer even copped to trying on some swimsuitsforall swimwear, just to see what the fuss was all about! We also learned that we have one thing in common—some of our most memorable times have happened in the water.
Mostly, though, we spent the day talking about you! We read your emails, discussed your compliments and complaints, and brainstormed ways to serve you better in the coming year. After all, you make what we do worthwhile.
We capped off the day with a three-hour cruise aboard the Affinity yacht. We saw New York City at its most beautiful, gliding past the iconic skyline, near the outstretched arm of the Statue of Liberty and under the picturesque Brooklyn Bridge. In fact, we could barely put down our camera phones long enough to enjoy the delicious dinner and drinks.
Once again, the water worked its magic. Being on the river gave us an opportunity to unwind, socialize, and meet some of our team’s family and friends. But most importantly, it inspired us to keep working to make the world a better place for you to swim in.
