Alba Team Building 2018 - Summer Hoedown

Alba Ultrasound had our team building event in the glorious sunshine of Scotland. This year Texas came to Stirlingshire in more ways than one as we were joined by our colleagues from R2Sonic in Austin for a Texas Hoedown.

We competed in eight team events ranging from horseshoe pitching and rodeo-riding to archery and clay pigeon shooting. This culminated in a hog-roast followed by a live band with line-dancing and cocktails.

It was agreed by everyone that this was another excellent and worthwhile occasion, with competitive team-building at its core. With this event now a firm fixture in the Alba calendar, we are already looking forward to next year's instalment.

Check out photos of the Hoedown here.

"I was delighted to have the opportunity to visit Alba Ultrasound and to see first-hand the dynamic, innovative approach to business that they have adopted. Alba Ultrasound is a great example of the drive and ambition that we want to see demonstrated by companies of all sizes throughout Scotland.

The Scottish Government is clear that innovation must be recognised and encouraged across the entire business base, and I am pleased that support from Scottish Enterprise, as well as the company's links to academia through the Engineering for the Future programme, has enabled the company to grow from strength to strength.
