Most Memorable Innosight Moment

Within a week of being hired, I received an e-mail entitled "Garrrrrrrrrrrrr! Ye best respond fast!" Very curious, I opened the e-mail and found an invitation to a company-wide event to go sailing on a tall ship in Boston Harbor. That e-mail and subsequent follow-up e-mails included significant pirate jargon. The day of the event came and there was the person who had issued the invitation—in full pirate attire. It reinforced for me (as a new hire) the culture of the office. Needless to say, I had a great time at the event—it was a fun afternoon on the Harbor—and I have photos with which to remember the occasion.
