I just can’t wait!
Each year we at Hunters run a competition for our group colleagues and franchise partners to enter, the competition has around 15 prizes all based on performance, growth etc. Last year we took the winners on a fabulous break to the city of Barcelona, where we enjoyed the sights, sounds, food and maybe the odd drink! This year though we are going one step further… NEW YORK!
New York is one of those places right on the top of my wish list to visit, as for some reason over my 42 years of existence I’ve never been, but come 9.30am on the 8th May, I will be on a flight with 22 colleagues to experience everything the “Big Apple” has to offer. In fairness to Ed (our FD) he normally stops the likes of Kevin (our MD) and I spending any money, but we have been able to squeeze one brilliant agenda from his wallet. We have a baseball game, Broadway musical and a helicopter flight… wow! As I type this am on a train into London, my all-time number 1 favourite city, but NYC may take that award. At some stage today I will get a travel guide as I need to take full advantage of this trip, big thanks to all at Hunters for allowing me to go, I really appreciate it!
2 weeks ago I wrote about our national conference when we announced the location for next years award winners… CAPETOWN! Like New York, I’ve not been there either (I best start working on the boss now I reckon!) and what a place that looks. This year we have around 18 awards up for grabs and it really is an open race to see who gets a seat on the plane!
We have already spoken about the following trip, one bright spark did say “where next, the moon!”, not a bad idea, funnily enough I’ve not been there either!
