’It’s very difficult to behave professionally in a wetsuit,’ points
out Anna Barez of Lycos. Maybe that’s why the sales and marketing
director of the internet search engine has a mischievous look on her
face when she describes the company’s annual watersports jolly at
London’s Prince’s Club. This involves 40 or so clients and staff plus
the odd lifeguard.
Anna is an experienced water-skier. Most of her clients aren’t, so no
doubt she has a good chuckle as they are painfully dragged along in the
wake of powerful motor boats.
Barez says it’s a great way of bonding without having to talk about
’All anybody can say is how embarrassed they’re going to be.’
