Team Building Unearths Talent
The School of Clinical Medicine (SCM) and the School of Laboratory Medicine (LMMS) in the College of Health Sciences recently held a team building staff talent show titled: “Show Us What You’ve GOT”.
Staff members enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon as they showcased their talents and creativity through group, duet and solo performances, using music, dance, karaoke and poetry.
The event aimed to enhance unity among staff, strengthen working relationships among the Schools, provide a relaxed fun platform for staff to celebrate their talents and creativity, and establish and strengthen working relations between academic and professional services staff.
The Woza Futhi music group led by Dr Michelle Gordon, Genomics Academic Leader for Research, dazzled the crowd with their performance.
It is hoped the annual event will grow from strength to strength and attract more participation from staff.
‘No matter how much talent one has (little or none), true potential and complete creativity can only be realised in working together,’ expressed Sharon Botha who is the Financial Administrator in the HIV Pathogenesis Programme, who enthusiastically partook in the staff talent show.
