Renaisi Team Day 2020
Every year the whole team get together to share learning, achievements and have some fun together. This year the whole event took place on Zoom but there was lots of chocolate!
Making sure there was lots of time for screen breaks we then heard from internal groups responsible for sustainability, wellbeing, embedding changes and equal opportunities.
After lunch we made chocolates guided by a professional chef.
We learned how to make ganache, the art of tempering chocolate, and dipping and decorating techniques.
