Holy moly, does that say Retreat #6?!

Team Knack gathered in upstate Wisconsin in July 2018 for another round of quality time, long-term planning, product brainstorming, coffee overindulging, and some good old-fashioned competition.

Retreats are always a great opportunity to outline our goals for the coming months. Here the success team hashes out plans to improve our knowledge base and improve internal operations to better support our customers.

In our off hours, we hosted our first ever Knackalympics! It was a fierce competition between two teams, featuring tense events like shuffleboard.

Retreats are one of our favorite parts of Knack culture, and we always come away with renewed energy, exciting ideas, and enough plans to keep us busy till the next one. Speaking of which, we can’t wait to meet up again!
