The STARCLUB meeting with a Mediterranean flair

A total of 39 STARCLUB mem­bers met with ENERGETIX’s man­age­ment on the beau­ti­ful Mediter­ranean island of Mal­ta from 1 to 3 Octo­ber. It was the first trip since the begin­ning of the pan­dem­ic for many of the par­tic­i­pants.

After arriv­ing on the Fri­day, the STARS were tak­en straight to Hotel-Resort Dol­men that’s locat­ed on the beach front. A bus then took the par­tic­i­pants for their evening meal to Val­let­ta, the island’s cap­i­tal. The par­tic­i­pants were giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to take a walk through the his­toric old town and explore its nar­row streets that were dec­o­rat­ed with fairy lights and filled with music and the aro­ma of Mal­tese cui­sine.

The next day was reserved for activ­i­ties, fun and team­work. So the par­tic­i­pants were tak­en by fer­ry to the island of Gozo where a small fleet of old off-road vehi­cles await­ed for a spe­cial island ral­ly. The trav­ellers were divid­ed into eight teams and giv­en a short brief­ing before they set off for their very own island adven­tures with indi­vid­ual sched­ules.

The goal was to find their way across the island by using the sched­ules and solv­ing ques­tions and tasks along the way. Dri­ving on the nar­row, some­times unpaved roads with the old cars was a chal­lenge in itself. So this team chal­lenge wasn’t lack­ing in adren­a­line and fun. A unique expe­ri­ence that none of the par­tic­i­pants will ever for­get so quick­ly.

Every­one was giv­en the chance to recov­er from the excit­ing day and spend some time on the beach or do a bit of shop­ping in the city in the late after­noon before it was time for the exclu­sive evening meal that was being served at Restau­rant Café del Mar. The win­ners of the ral­ly were cel­e­brat­ed in the mod­ern ambi­ence. The exquis­ite meal was com­ple­ment­ed with cake to cel­e­brate the birth­day of one of the par­tic­i­pants. In spite of the coro­na-relat­ed ban on danc­ing, it was a suc­cess­ful evening, which some of the trav­ellers found them­selves bring­ing to close at the beach bar.

The next morn­ing, the last one before depar­ture, pro­vid­ed the time and scope for an inten­sive exchange with the man­age­ment. In the bright sun­shine and with a buf­fet lunch to fol­low, every­one was giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to address impor­tant top­ics that would help shape new devel­op­ments at ENERGETIX.

The inter­na­tion­al STARCLUB meet­ing not only pro­vid­ed the set­ting for a great reunion that was char­ac­ter­ized by lots of fun, good food and long-await­ed per­son­al exchanges, it was also a total suc­cess.
