This year ARAG celebrate their fifth anniversary and all of the accompanying successes that have been achieved. To mark the occasion we held a celebratory evening for staff and guests at the magnificent Roman Baths in Bath.
In 2006, with just a handful of employees, ARAG started trading in the UK. Fast-forward to today where our 50th employee has just started, our product portfolio has doubled and we are successfully running at a profitable level and you start to see why we felt the need to celebrate in style.
On Thursday 29 September, guests and staff enjoyed a champagne drinks reception around the famous Roman Baths, followed by a four-course dinner in the adjoining Pump Room. After dinner, ARAG’s Managing Director, Tony Buss and Head of Group International, Dr Johannes Kathan stood up to say a few words. We were also treated to a surprise rendition of Happy Birthday on the piano by Dr Kathan.
To close the evening, after-dinner speaker John Simonett entertained us by memorising details about everyone in the room and then went around surprising people with snippets and stories about their interests, work and achievements.
After carriages at midnight, most went back to the hotel to continue the fun at the hotel bar, it is safe to say that it was definitely an eventful evening!
