Day 2: Client’s HQ Visit and Bosporus Cruise

On our second day we finally got to visit our client’s headquarter for the first time. Having been working on this project for SUTAS since January, everyone was very excited to see the company as well as the executives whom we will be delivering the final presentation to next week. The headquarter was beautifully designed. Everyone was welcoming and very eager to learn about what the teams have done so far. The client gave us an overview presentation about the company and provided more details on the product categories, production facilities, operations processes, and recent international developments.

We then broke up into teams to talk directly to the Chief Marketing Officer and the Head of Finance. The teams tried out some products for the first time and walked SUTAS executives through our main recommendations for feedbacks. This was also an excellent opportunity for us to ask more clarification questions so that we could start to refine the final deliverable.

SUTAS then provided everyone with a nutritious lunch at their cafeteria. We then headed to KAGIDER, The Women Entrepreneurs Association of Turkey. We learned a lot about the women empowerment initiatives in Turkey and the increasingly important value of gender equality at the workplace. It was a great trip.

At night, the teams were treated to a fantastic Bosporus Cruise trip around Istanbul. We departed from   the Kabatas Pier and made our way from the European side to the Asian side and back. We had dinner on the cruise enjoying the amazing sceneries. There was also an open bar and music for the whole duration of the trip. I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves!
