What are the holidays without an unforgettable holiday party with amazing, fun and intelligent people? With this being my first year at PKM, I had no idea what to expect when I received the invitation to PKM’s Annual Holiday Party. Luckily, I could count on the many people I had come to know well at PKM to help me out. I had not been to a black tie event in several years, and I was sure this was going to be a spectacular event by the look of the invitation. The night of the party started out in the lobby of Westin-Buckhead. The Pre-Party cocktail hour was a great way to get everyone to loosen up. Everyone was elegantly dressed and in high spirits. I had the opportunity to see some of the new hires that I had recently interviewed, and talk to some of the ones that I had not met previously. It was also great getting to see everyone I work in a stress free and casual atmosphere. The art gallery where the main party was hosted was great. There were black jack, roulette, and craps tables; all of which were available to play without the added stress of losing money. This came in handy for teaching me the art of casino games, which is helpful for weeks when I am out at a client in Biloxi, Mississippi. There were also a plethora of food stations with delicious options. Not to mention, the “photo booth” was a great addition, especially for creating comedic memories. Then the music provided by a DJ of course led to a night of dancing, laughter, and great fun. As I have been told is tradition, the night ended with PKM giveaways. Even though I did not come away with a prize, it was wonderful to see how supportive everyone was to the PKM employees that did win. I hope every holiday party turns out just as great as this year’s did!
