Telstra’s Social Committee BBQ with ChillaxBBQ

An OMG moment. A calm before the storm moment. But then it happened. “Table for 100 please!” said Marjet, Country MD for Telstra. And so started Telstra’s Social Committee BBQ with ChillaxBBQ. I am hopeful that a load of the teams in attendance took photos that I can embed, as I was so so so busy I only had time to grab a couple of snaps.

6am and wet market. Oven on and slow roasting. New dishes and signature dishes. The boys rocked, we rocked – this is Telstra’s Social Committee BBQ with ChillaxBBQ. Now we hear that we’re going to be asked back for the Telstra’s Social Committee Family BBQ – go figure. There’s an accolade.

So what did we get up to (in the limited photos that I have) this day!
