APS Christmas celebration

7 December 2018

APS Corporate Retreat

APS held its 2018 annual firm-wide corporate retreat in Kathmandu, the capital of the Himalayan nation Nepal, which is home to the world’s tallest peak Mt Everest. This annual affair gathers in one location all the full-time staff of APS from its offices in Singapore, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Beijing, Tokyo, and New York, regardless of corporate title or length of service. 

Over 5 days in Kathmandu, staff participated in a full-day investment meeting where fresh trends were explored, a half-day firm-wide session to share ideas on boosting efficiency, visited sites of interest in the city, and embarked on a 10km hike through the hilly countryside.   

This annual gathering allows us to make fond memories together, brings us to places we otherwise may not visit, as well as bring to life colleagues who are typically embodied by email signatures, voices over the phone, or images in a video conference.    

Prior to Nepal 2018, the firm has together experienced the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of Chiangmai, Colombo, Yangon, Osaka, Taipei, Sydney, Hanoi, Xiamen, Phuket, Sapporo, and Singapore.   

And together, we will explore more destinations and make more fond memories together in the years to come.

What's the Key Number Here?

That's hilarious! But Clearly Somebody Didn't Get the Joke and is Slightly Bewildered.
