The Inaugural event organised by No Surprises took place at The New Landmark Centre Oniru Lagos and attracted over 30 different SMEs, multinationals corporations, celebrities and high net-worth individuals. The venue was completely transformed into a Christmas wonderland with amazing decor provided by Newton and David.
Guests experienced show stopping performances from Tiwa Savage, Banky W, Chee, Patoranking, Moses Adigwe (season 3 Idols winner), Olawale (Winner Project Fame), Tomi Odunsi and a special comedic performance by Basketmouth. Illrymz was the official MC of the day and DJ Jimmy Jatt rounded off the evening at the after party.
CEOs mingled and sipped on Laurent Perrier at the exclusive CEO lounge, while employees took part in a Christmas carol sing off, a raffle and a ‘shoki’ dance off. All guests were treated to a bespoke 5 star Christmas menu by Dr Robert and enjoyed festive cocktails by Maldesa.
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“.
