DIARY: This fish story is just a bit too hard to swallow

Forget go-karting and Outward Bound courses, Cohn and Wolfe healthcare director Martin Ellis has devised a new way to inspire greatness in his staff.

Forget go-karting and Outward Bound courses, Cohn and Wolfe healthcare

director Martin Ellis has devised a new way to inspire greatness in his

staff.



All one needs is a restaurant which serves whitebait, buckets of Becks

beer,some straws and you have...(drum roll)...The Whitebait Swimming

Gala!



The beer is drunk in order to use the ice buckets as scaled-down

swimming pools. Each team member then picks their fishy contender and

places it at the starting line.



The miniscule scaly athletes are then blown across the surface of the

water with straws. Winners and ‘finalists’, one assumes, then order more

bottles.



The result is a beer-drenched, but happy, group who have successfully

bonded while demonstrating their mental and manual dexterity within a

team environment.



Note: rules of the game advise that staff members should be tiddley

before embarking on this morale-boosting exercise. As with many silly

drinking games the point only becomes clear when your vision isn’t.
