NYKO 2023 Brings Everyone to New Orleans to Connect, Collaborate and Celebrate

We’re back from NYKO, our annual New Year Kick-Off meeting! NYKO’23 offered a special opportunity to look back at the year past, to look ahead to the year to come, and to have fun. This year we were in New Orleans and, as you would expect, we had a great time.

“It’s always wonderful to bring everyone together from our New Jersey office, from around the country and from around the world,” said Shawn Monaghan, our Talent Engagement Specialist. “And NYKO offers a great opportunity to connect with colleagues, make new friends and, when the day is over, relax with the people we work with every day.”

NYKO’23 focused first on 2022 performance – and putting an exclamation point on a great year. Last year we set a new, higher bar for revenue, and we improved in virtually every performance measure. Then we heard from our managing partners, Anne Marie Berger and Michel Berger, about their plans for the company’s continued success in 2023.

Role-based breakout meetings provided a chance to discover new ideas and develop new efficiencies. Cross-functional meetings offered an opportunity to understand how other teams function and find new ways to collaborate. And our annual Secret Santa gift exchange delivered some “interesting” gifts.

We finished each day with unique-to-New-Orleans activities – including a walking tour of the French Quarter, a spooky Ghost Tour, an enlightening Voodoo Tour and a late-night Drunk History tour – and a delicious dinner together, followed by an evening in the French Quarter.

“NYKO is about being together as colleagues and friends, and as an organization,” Monaghan noted. “And, most important, it offers an opportunity to learn how to work better together, to reinforce our DRIVEN values, and to build on ForeFront’s exceptional culture.”
