2018 was a fantastic year for Ambition UK and we strongly believe that success deserves to be rewarded.
Therefore, to celebrate our achievements and to thank our employees for their hard work, Ambition took the entire UK office away for a weekend of fun and team bonding to kick off 2019 at the luxurious hotel and resort, The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield.
Whilst in previous years we have provided incentive trips to Dubai and other exotic locations for our highest billers, we felt that it was important to offer an incentive trip that all our employees could enjoy, as we recognise that every person at Ambition plays a key role in our success, from our top billers to our resourcers, to our fantastic corporate services team.
Situated on the outskirts of Birmingham, The Belfry is an award-winning hotel and resort surrounded by over 550 acres of countryside, with many restaurants, bars, a nightclub, a luxury Spa and Health Club and an amazing golf course, which many of our employees were keen to make the most of!
Upon arrival, we were taken to a beautiful private room overlooking the stunning grounds of the hotel. After some coffee and croissants, our senior management team gave a kick-off presentation, outlining our vision, strategy and goals for 2019.
This was soon followed by one of the main highlights of the weekend - an escape room at Clue HQ Birmingham!
Employees were split into teams of six. Each team was locked in a different room and given 60 minutes to try and work out a way to escape through finding clues and solving puzzles. It was great fun and got extremely competitive as teams raced against each other to try and escape the fastest!
In the evening, we hosted a black tie sit down dinner followed by drinks and dancing until the early hours at The Belfry's exclusive on-site nightclub.
Overall it was a fantastic weekend of fun which embodied one of Ambition's core values - Enjoyment!
Here is a short snippet of some of the highlights of our trip:
