Connecting Switzerland and San Francisco in education, research, innovation, and the arts.
Refresh, Rethink, Retreat!
In August, swissnex San Francisco headed out of the city and out of the fog for a mid-year staff retreat to assess and fine-tune our work.
A quick morning meeting at the pariSoma Innovation Loft in San Francisco to discuss our operations and activities set the stage for a successful weekend. Next, our 13-person group piled into a van and drove north to Napa for wine-tasting and a tour of the impressive Hess art collection.
Another intensive morning session the following day saw our team brainstorm solutions to better serve and connect with our stakeholders. On the way back home, bolstered by new ideas and energy, we stopped off at Olompali State Historic Park for a hike under the oaks on land where Coast Miwoks once lived.
