Oliver Ford, account director at Concord, found himself walking in

a winter wonderland when JC Decaux took him on a weekend jolly to

Lapland last February.



’Loads of different activities had been laid on for us including ice

skating and rides on sleighs pulled by reindeer,’ Ford wistfully

recalls.



But this seemingly serene and relaxing scene was shattered when all

present were invited to take a dip in the frozen waters.



Dressed in bright orange drysuits, the stout outdoor specialists had no

qualms about wallowing in the icy waters.



Ford claims he found the swim surprisingly refreshing, ’especially after

the intense disappointment of not meeting Santa Claus’.
