A decade in business is an occasion that must be marked with something special for the entire team. We’ve organised many team trips over the years to destinations like New York, Las Vegas and The Algarve but this time we wanted to forget about targets and do something a bit different.
So, in a bid to escape the bitterly cold British winter we thought it was apt to head somewhere...*drumroll, please*...even colder! That’s right, we packed our thermals and set off for Pamporovo in Bulgaria for a week on the slopes. Oh, and did we mention that, aside from John who dabbled 18 years ago, we’re all ski novices?
We got off to a dramatic start with Pamporovo receiving three metres of snow on the day we arrived. While the snow was great news for skiing, it did mean that the three-hour trip from the airport to the resort ended up taking an eye-watering nine-hours.
Once we were there safe and sound, it was time to learn how to ski! While we’re never going to give Chemmy Alcott a run for her money, we were proud to conquer the intermediate red runs before we left. That being said, all of us spectacularly bailed on the resort’s most severe black run ‘The Wall’. We’re nothing if not ambitious!
It wasn’t all high-octane, with après-ski and fine dining in the evenings, followed by us hitting the Irish bar and ‘The Pub’ before an early start back on the slopes to blow away those cobwebs in the morning.
As you can see by our photos, we all had a fantastic time and got genuinely bitten by the ski bug! All that’s left to say is that we’re so grateful to the business for taking us all away on this unforgettable trip, as well as all of our clients and candidates who have supported Henry Nicholas over the last 10 years.
