Flow Communications

Flow’s management takes care to include fun activities in our short daily staff meetings – via Google Hangouts, as we are all working from home. On 26 May, we were asked to each write a haiku for an assigned staff member.

Every day, every Flow staff member is assigned an e-buddy for the day, a randomly selected colleague who we contact during the day for an informal chat about things other than work. These were the people we had to write haikus for.

Here are a selection of our haikus:

From Caroline Smith, head of public relations, for office manager John Kazembe:

I miss your greeting

The smile that started my day

morning cheer that lasts

From strategist Janet Berger, for Cape Town-based content producer Pakamani Nombila:

Looking to the sea

Are you there and are you warm

I miss the waves most

From managing director Tiffany Turkington-Palmer, for project manager Roshni Nana:

Smart, kind, beautiful

she is everything that counts

spice, calm, my Flow light

From head of training Thrishni Subramoney, for senior writer and subeditor Libby Peacock:

Kind eyes, gentle soul

Wise, erudite, wordsmith

Libby simply rocks 🌞

From content director Edwina van der Burg, for Maria Foundanellas, executive personal assistant:

Glue holds together

You do it so much better

Flow loves Maria

From developer Tinashe Gunda, for account manager Mohau Ravhudzulo, who is a new mother:

Mohau – new life

New life, brings joy

New life brings sadness

New life, new hope

From financial director Saajidah Suliman, for project manager Mandisa Mngadi:

So impressed by her

the ability to be healthier

in sanctuary

From Cape Town manager Sarah-Jane Viljoen, for account manager Refiloe Mothapo:

Refiloe: wide smile welcomes all

Laugh loud, a big open heart

We love you lady

From business developer Roy Barford, for developer Vashen Mooniyen:

Vashen, ’sup my man

Have a real delicious day

Chow all that you can

And from Vashen to Roy:

Roy so full of joy,

the horses are made of gold,

hope they are not cold
