“Modern” and “forward thinking” were the words used to describe what was desired for this 2018 corporate kick-off event. An easily-accessible suburban location was also required. After scouting many possible venues, we discovered Shakou offered a “city vibe” in the suburbs through stylish décor and modern Asian cuisine. A restaurant buy-out for the day allowed the 125-plus guests ample room and time to enjoy mingling, a delicious lunch, activities, a presentation and panel Q&A, and beautiful desserts.
