There’s nothing like being on a boat on a beautiful summer day, circling New York, with Frank Sinatra and Alicia Keys singing their love songs to the Big Apple. A great day!
-Adrienne Fontaine, Publicist
Last Tuesday, August 5th, marked the third annual Finn Partners summer boat cruise in New York City, a summer outing where Finn Partners employees from all divisions came together to spend the day dancing, toasting and dining on Manhattan’s Hudson River.
It is always nice to get outside in the summer but to see life from the vantage point of a boat is even more special. We got so close to Lady Liberty that I felt like was going to step out of her pose and give me a hug. I think it’s always a good idea to connect with your colleagues outside of work. It makes work seem like anything but.

This was my second year on the boat cruise, and it seems like each year it gets better! It’s great to see everyone letting loose and having such a good time. I already can’t wait for next year! -Cori Cagide, Associate Publicist
The boat was a blast, getting to know my colleagues in an entirely different environment was a great experience. I had no idea we had some serious dancers on our team! But joking aside, sometimes with the daily hustle and bustle it’s easy to overlook that we work in such an amazing city, and the 360 degree view of the Big Apple was both humbling and necessary to reignite a sense of mindfulness and appreciation of where we are and the work we’re doing. Looking forward to next summer!

It was a great time connecting with other people in various departments. We work in a big office, so oftentimes you tend to pass right by people without ever really getting to meet them, and so the day was a nice way to create relationships. And it’s always nice seeing people outside of their suits and ties just relaxing. Brings the sense of camaraderie closer!

What a blast the cruise was this summer! Great weather; great food and great dancing! Especially enjoyed Mick’s historical description of the waterfront! Nice to have a local historian (and photographer) on the team. Look forward to next year’s outing!

I loved the sense of camaraderie and community – everyone was excited to spend the day with one another. Since we work in a fairly large company with different divisions it was nice to meet people (and put names to faces) that I see regularly. I am already looking forward to next year!

I had a great time at the cruise, it was a great group work experience. The dancing surprised me the most. Finn Partners and MEDIA CONNECT have some talented dancers!
-Johanna Dickson, Digital Publicist
It’s kind of obvious I enjoyed the dancing segment the best! But I also enjoyed talking to my colleagues and dining with them.
