Our Family Day in Slovenia

Finally, we got to reunite (safely) with team Slovenia and their families for our long-awaited family day!

We kicked off our day with an early visit to a local farm. The kids had endless fun with the barn animals and were curious to learn more about their new friends.

Lake Bled Castle and more family day adventure

The majestic Lake Bled Castle was next on our to-do list. We uncovered much about its wonderful history together, which dates all the way back to 1004! According to our guide, it is the oldest castle in Slovenia.

Take a look at the stunning view we enjoyed from the top.

Afterwards, we conquered our fear of heights by taking on the longest zipline in Europe. Talk about reaching new heights! Of course, there was also the option to explore the Adventure Park instead of ziplining.

Even the children got the opportunity to embark on their thrilling adventure and courageously explored the park. All in all, we had a lot of fun!

Last boat ride with the family

On Sunday morning, after the adrenaline rush had settled down, we headed to the lake for a scenic walk. But there was also one thing that we needed to do together before saying our goodbyes: a boat ride! As we explored Lake Bled, we enjoyed the stunning views home to Slovenia in great spirits. After all, who wouldn’t love to see the beautiful scenery of Lake Bled one last time?

Last day of intern Fernando

Fernando’s internship at Admiral Dynamics

Today is already Fernando’s last day as an intern at Admiral Dynamics. Read his experiences about the past 3 months at our company:

“And here we go again, another chapter in the book of my life getting closed. This chapter marks the end of my student life and probably the start of my professional life.

I’m pretty happy to have chosen for Admiral Dynamics as my internship company. My internship started on 4 March and since the very first moment the people from Admiral Dynamics welcomed me as one of them. The goal of my internship was to develop and to implement a Customer Self-Service Portal where clients would be able to manage their support tickets. This would also help the Admiral Dynamics’ support team in many various ways.

At first I thought I wasn’t going to be able to complete this project but thanks to the CRM training from Paul and my commitment to learn everything about CRM, I finalised it!

I would like a few people before I go. First of all, Tim, my internship mentor, he has been guiding me throughout the entire project by giving me feedback on the analytical parts of the project, because this project was more than just writing code. Of course there were other colleagues that helped me as well. I had a meeting with Carole on a weekly basis, to discuss with her about the status of the project, improvements on the Portal, and many more things. Laurent’s feedback also came in really handy to define standards that I later used as a basis for my workflows (automated processes). The input from Ben also made me notice I still have some work points on my developing skills.

There is a basket with fresh fruit every Monday, very welcome if you’re suddenly feeling hungry. However, the thing that kept me alive during the morning was free coffee! With your badge, you can refill your mug as many times as you want.

Looking back, I really enjoyed being a team member of the Admiral Dynamics’ family and being responsible for making this project to become true. I want to thank everyone in Admiral Dynamics for giving me this opportunity to be here. Thank you! Time really does fly when you are immersed into a project that devours every single portion of your concentration and time.”

The entire Admiral Dynamics team would like to thank Fernando for his hard work and dedication!

Butterflies and Lotus flowers for Team Admiral

On Wednesday 12 December the entire Admiral Dynamics crew gathered for an early Christmas event. As Christmas is a very special and warm time, we decided to visit the colourful China Light spectacle @ Zoo Antwerpen. During our one hour walk, we experienced a stunning Chinese lights festival including an Asian love story, beautiful Lotus flowers and (Admiral) butterflies! It was a chilly night, so a warm aperitif like mulled wine and genever was more than welcome.

The Chinese lightshow was only the first part of our team evening. Of course, we couldn’t go home with empty stomachs. So, we ended up at Brutal, a local restaurant near the Zoo. It was pleasant to have dinner all together in a cosy and warm setting with delicious foods, while chatting about our holiday plans, families and lives besides Admiral Dynamics.

As 2018 is almost over, this was definitely a blissful end of year team activity! Again an evening well-spent with the Admiral family. Curious about our after work event? Have a look at the photos below.

PS: We’re always looking for great people to join our team. Check out the vacancies on our career page. Or send your CV if you think we would be a perfect match!

 

Indian Summer Family Event for Team Admiral Dynamics

Indian Summer for team Admiral Dynamics and family

On Saturday September 15, it was our long awaited Indian Summer Family Event. And yes, it felt a bit like summer again! We kicked off our family day with a tasty but light lunch at the Regatta Club in Antwerp (Linkeroever) because team Admiral Dynamics knew what would come afterwards.

After the lunch, the action got started: we kicked off the afternoon with a game of archery tag. Check out the picture of the winning team below. After a short break, it was time to put on our wet suits (which was also quite challenging 😉). Because now the water fun would begin!

First there’s a session of Stand Up Paddle in pairs. And last but not least, we tried to do some wakeboarding. That was the most difficult part for most of our team. We learned that wakeboarding or water skiing behind a cable requires more practicing, but we all had lots of fun and laughter watching our colleagues, their partners and kids crashing into the water. Watch the small video on our Instagram page to see what we mean!

After a well-deserved shower, we concluded this day sitting on the terrace at the lakeside, sipping from our drinks and delicious BBQ and enjoying the sunset.

What a great day it was, what a fantastic team and family we are! Plenty of memories and stories made. Have a look at the pictures below to get an impression of how it was.

PS: This teambuilding event was perfectly organised thanks to Jeppa Sport.

Team Admiral Dynamics goes VR

On Wednesday July 5 the Admiral Dynamics team stepped out of reality and went on a virtual reality adventure @ The Park Playground. Admiral’s mission was to kill the zombies before being killed themselves! It was an amazing and challenging experience in a virtual world.

Back in the real world, we soaked up the last sun rays and enjoyed a beautiful sunset and Antwerp’s finest views, while sipping away a fresh beer on the Black Smoke rooftop terrace. Summer nights in the city of Antwerp are great! Of course, we also filled our empty stomachs with delicious food at the Black Smoke restaurant.

Check the pictures below of both the VR activity as the rooftop drinks afterwards. Or have a look at our short movie on Instagram of one team fighting against the zombies.

Fun times and great memories for team Admiral Dynamics! Most of us will now enjoy some time off because the holiday season is here but we are already looking forward to our next team event in September.

 

Teambuilding Admiral Dynamics Cooking workshop Kook Klasse

Team Admiral Dynamics cooks to impress

On Wednesday November 22, Team Admiral Dynamics surpassed all expectations and made the most delicious dishes during a cooking workshop @ Kook Klasse. We decided to do things differently! Instead of going to a normal restaurant, order food and have your meals served, we went to a cooking class where we prepared our own meals. And we are proud to mention that cooking our own dishes went surprisingly well!

Our team was divided in small groups and each of the groups was responsible for cooking one or two dishes. In less than an hour we could start our 6-course dinner. Curious to find out what we made during this amazing cooking workshop? Certainly check out the culinary result of our team cooking on our Instagram page. We were quite impressed of the delicious outcome ourselves! 😉

Conclusion of the evening: we had an excellent evening with yummy food, delicious wines in an informal and cosy setting. Last but not least we spent some informal time together with our DYNAMIC team. Definitely worth repeating sometime in the future!
