Day 2 Part 2: The Dinner Party

Meetings were over! It was time for us to relax and have some fun. We were all invited for a dinner party at Andrea’s Yiordamli villa, one of the most beautiful houses we’ve ever been.

Andrea, one of the directors of Polarity Technologies and reputable lawyer, proved to be an excellent hostess. The food and dessert was amazing. Andrea has even a hired a barman to make cocktails and a chef to cook live for us.

The evening began with welcome drinks by the pool and ended with candle dinner under the stars.

Our friends from Spigot, EightPoint and Genimous seemed to have really enjoyed it and of course we enjoyed it too.

Day 2 Part 1: The Meetings

Yesterday was our second day at the Parklane Hotel. After having a delicious breakfast by the beautiful swimming pool we had our morning free to do whatever we wanted. Some of us got up early to get prepared for the meetings or to get some work done on their laptops. Polarity’s Annual General Meeting was scheduled for 2:30pm.

After having our lunch at the Lane restaurant of the resort, we moved at the Citrus East conference room where the meetings would take place. Many important matters related to the current status of the company as well as its future plans, were discussed.

Members from our sister companies, Spigot and EightPoint were present, as well as important members of our parent company, Genimous.

When it comes to Polarity Technologies, all the directors and the team was of course there. Meet us below.

Here is what Happened on Day 1

Working with Polarity Technologies is an amazing journey full of fun and exciting experiences. Yes we do work hard, but we also play hard.

Yesterday Polarity’s staff members and board of directors arrived at the Parklane hotel. (No words or photos can describe accurately how awesome this hotel is!) We have planned to spend 2 nights here, together with our colleagues from Spigot, Eightpoint and Genimous who have travelled all the way to Cyprus for Polarity’s Annual General Meeting.

So here is what happened yesterday…

We arrived at the hotel early in the afternoon. We checked-in and left our things in the rooms. A luxury minibus was waiting  for us at the hotel entrance to drive us at Limassol Marina, where our cruise would start! The white Catamaran was sailing under the sunset, while we were enjoying fantastic mojitos. The summer breeze, the sound of the waves and the reggae music at the background helped us to completely relax.

Few hours later we got back to our hotel. We took our time to get refreshed and ready for dinner. People from other countries do really appreciate the Cypriot cuisine, therefore we booked a table at Forsos tavern, where we enjoyed  delicious meat meze at the beautiful yard.

We got back at the hotel quite early. Today is the big day, so some people chose to get some rest. Other, decided that the night should not end so early so they had few wildly imaginative cocktails at beautiful terrace of Parklane.

Today is the big day. Stay tuned and find out what happened.

Few Days Left to Polarity’s Annual Gathering

Genimous Group, Polarity’s parent company, as well as our sister companies, Eightpoint Technologies & Spigot Inc., will meet next week in Cyprus for Polarity’s Annual General Meeting. The big 2-day event will take place at Parklane Resort & Spa, the new gem of Limassol.

Representatives from each company will travel all the way from Florida US, Bucharest, Cayman and Beijing to attend this important annual gathering.

Apart from the meetings, we have also scheduled some really fun team activities and outings.

Although the activities will start on Monday, some of our guests have arrived to Cyprus already. Last night, our team and Benjamin Newell, from Eightpoint Technologies went for dinner at ”Mpempa”.  For most of us, it was our first time there but the positive feedback we got from our circle made us want to try it, plus it was a good chance for Ben to try the authentic Greek cuisine.

Few days have left to Polarity’s annual gathering and we are really excited about it.

Friday Team Lunch @ Evohia

The past weeks have been quite challenging, so we have decided that it was time for us to take a short break and enjoy a nice lunch altogether.

We picked Evohia restaurant because apart from its  excellent food, it’s also located at a short distance from our office. Team outings as well as other team activities is something that we seek to do, whenever we get the chance to, here in Polarity Technologies Ltd.

Teamwork is one of the core values of Polarity’s culture. Interacting within different environments, other than the office, makes it easier for us relax and casually exchange ideas on work and non-work related matters. We keep learning each other through this. The better understanding helps us to operate more effectively as a team in the long run.

Welcome Summer Party

Since Nicosia does not have a beach Wonder Be has decided to create one. After the success of last year’s Nicosia Beach Party, the same concept will be repeated this year at the yard of Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, in Faneromeni. The end of Ledra street will be transformed in an exotic beach. Umbrellas, deckchairs & hammocks will compose the perfect beach scenery. The scenery gets completed with exotic cocktails and upbeat summer hits. Retro and Contemporary, Greek and non-Greek Music, will uplift our mood and get us ready for summer.

It’s worth mentioning that the event which will be held next Sunday, June 9, from 5pm-11:55pm supports the action of the Karaiskakio Foundation.

In Polarity Technologies Ltd we love summer, exotic cocktails and party!

5 Best European Cities For Solo Travellers

In Polarity Technologies Ltd we love travelling and meeting foreign cultures. Apart from business trips that happen quite often, leisure travelling is something we also enjoy and do.

Whenever we have the chance, we try to combine business trips with tourism. So instead of returning back to Cyprus straight after a meeting, we choose to extend our trip so we can explore nearby destinations. This is one of the most amazing perks we have here in Polarity and we feel really grateful about it.

Travelling is freedom. Isn’t it?  Freedom means to be able to act the way you feel. So if you feel that you want to visit other places and live new experiences you should do it, even alone.

Below are 5 beautiful and safe destinations for solo travellers.

  • Rome, Italy
  • Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Amsterdam, Netherlands
  • Vienna, Austria

1 out of 3 Internet Users Don’t Know How to Protect Their Privacy

The amount of personal data that the users are sharing through the internet has been increased. Oversharing has reached a level where users feel that they have lost control, believing that even if they tried to regain their privacy, they would failed.

Kaspersky Lab has recently discovered that 32% of internet users are illiterate on how they can fully protect their privacy in the digital world.

This lack of knowledge can make anyone an easy target for digital crimes.

The same survey of Kaspersky showed that one out of five users have witnessed leakage of their own private date or personal data of their family. The percentage increases when it comes to families with minors.

Worrying is however the fact that one out of ten users has lost completely his motivation to get his privacy protected.
