Funmi Victor-Okigbo (FVO) CEO, No Surprises said “The Unofficial Christmas Party 2014 is the first of many to come; a shared Christmas party is a great way for companies to treat their employees to a high scale production event at a fraction of the price. It’s all about the experience and creating memories that will boost employee morale and bottom line productivity for next year“.

The Unofficial Christmas Party was an uncomplicated but extravagant way to say thank you to my employees, network and also build new friendships over the spirit of the holidays all in one place” said Lanre Onasanya CEO Integral Assets. “I’m impressed with the companies I’ve met today, it was wonderful to see CEOs of some of Nigeria’s most exciting SMEs relax with their staff and enjoy themselves” he added.

Uche Nwankwo, CEO Discovery Brands said “Traditionally, our Christmas celebrations are always small – with a big emphasis on fun. This year, The Unofficial Christmas Party exceeded my expectations, it was a great way to treat my team to a memorable Christmas celebration, and still uphold our culture of enjoying non-work time“.

    My husband/boyfriend/fiance pouting or duck-lipping in a pix with me in it at an event is good enough reason for a breakup/divorce!

    I am about to sound “ignotant” but I thought SME stood for subject matter expert. I am pretty certain that’s not the case with this article. So anyone what does this SME stand for?

      It has always meant small and medium sized enterprises.
