"And now...we conga!" (NB a knight wasn't actually there. That would have been too metal).
A video has appeared on LinkedIn showing staff at Knights enjoying the healing power of song.
Clips from the listed firm's 2022 conference capture Rock My Business, a team building company, attempting to whip up a singalong. Its work was cut out for it given Knights had recently released a pessimistic trading update which crashed the share price from 365p to 100p.
Set to Queen's 'We Will Rock You', the film begins with shots of staff in lanyards making small talk under a video screen displaying the uplifting edict, "Today is a celebration".
ARE YOU HAVING FUN YET.
How about now?
Footage shows Brian Allen, the founder of Rock My Business, testing the limits of his microphone with an enthusiastic rendition of Bon Jovi's 'It's my life'. Putting the mic to the audience, the bekilted frontman is repaid with a bellowed, "I ain't gonna live forever!"
It's not Glasto, but it'll do.
"1,000+ lawyers simply rocked Birmingham ICC to it's core", claimed Allen.
"Freddie Mercury said it best when asked why he was able to engage the crowd the way he did and he replied 'I can only give back what they give me'. I hope we did the same :)", he wrote, which could be read as an ingenious excuse.
At least one employee is still high from the experience. Celebrating two years at Knights, the staff member posted that he had seen "a huge, positive change" during his time at the firm, including "modern culture, pragmatic leadership and, genuinely, brilliant people who I feel privileged to work with and support".
"Awesome. Three years for me next week", responded a partner, adding somewhat ambiguously, "It is truly a different work environment".
