The entire Painted Dog team just returned from a corporate retreat where we not only celebrated Painted Dog’s Sweet 16th, but where we also strategised to ensure the next 16 years of success.  

The owners of Painted Dog always seem to adopt the ‘go big or go home’ philosophy, so in true style they decided that the most fitting way to celebrate this huge milestone was to go international – and to do it at the best hotel in Bali, the W Hotel.

The offices in both Perth and Melbourne locked their doors for 4 days and flew to Bali to begin what will go down as the most epic Painted Dog adventure to date.

We spent 4 days as a team exploring Seminyak, Canggu and beyond – experiencing local culture, sampling local food and spending quality time with our pack away from the office. In between the adventures, we worked on strategies and tactics to take Painted Dog to the next level over the medium and long term, to ensure we continue to push the boundary and remain at the leading edge of the research industry. It was also a great chance for our ever-growing Perth and Melbourne teams to get together, get to know each other better and share in our combined successes (and in some cases, share the experience of Bali Belly…).

Each year there are big things to celebrate – whether that be our clients, strategic and meaningful projects, winning new work, new staff, office expansions … the list goes on. We hope to continue our success and growth at Painted Dog, with each year bigger and better than the year before. So, here’s a big cheers to 16 years in business, to the amazing team that has helped us along the way!  We look forward to celebrating many more! Of course, none of this would have been possible without the amazing support and loyalty of our clients. So a big thanks goes out to you. We appreciate you!
