A couple weeks back Gareth and some of GCB’s top performers hopped on a plane and jetted off to a very sunny Dubai in aid of anniversary celebrations, team building, and a very special client visit! The trip was originally planned to correspond with GCB’s 10th year anniversary in 2020, but after covid hit the trip was postponed, and the boys finally ended up going this March.
Founder of GCB, Gareth Broom, Jack Pickering, Oliver Cliffe (or ‘Cliffy’ as he’s known in the office) and Toby Loft took off to the United Arab Emirates and it’s fair to say they all had a fantastic experience. The boys stayed at Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) where they enjoyed the buzzing beach promenade and a great bar scene.
One purpose of the trip was part of an award system that Gareth has employed to really show his team his gratitude! Toby and Jack were awarded the holiday as part of a company incentive, and ‘Cliffy’ was invited along as a thank you for being part of the GCB family for 5 years! Congratulations to you all!
The second, was to pay a visit to one of GCB’s oldest clients, Allsopp & Allsopp Estate Agents & Letting Agents whose head office is located in the prestigious Vision Tower in Business Bay in the heart of Dubai. Gareth and team had a tour round their stunning office with the lovely Jo Parker, HR director, along with some of the team GCB had secured placement for.
‘GCB have been recruiting for Allsopp & Allsopp for about 8 or 9 years now! I’d say, at an estimate, we’ve probably placed about 30 & 40 people in sales, letting agent roles, and mortgage advisor jobs. We are currently recruiting for a property management position at the moment too.’ - Gareth Broom
For GCB, trips like this are really important. Gareth highlights that, ‘from a team building perspective, these experiences are invaluable. It’s important to re-set, get to know each other outside of the office and also a chance to show the team our gratitude for all the hard graft they put in every day.’
When the guys weren’t working, they got to let their hair down and enjoy their holiday. Bar hopping, a visit to the Burj Khalifa, shopping malls, brunches, jet skis and water parks. They really did it all and brought home some incredible stories to share with the rest of the team back in Norwich.
