GALLAGHER’S global team gathered in NZ last week for its annual sales conference and took the opportunity to put smiles on the faces of local kids. 

110 staff from 13 countries finished their week with a team-building activity that saw them build 16 bicycles for young foster children from the region. Putting their mechanical skills to the test, the Gallagher teams raced to complete their bicycle builds before presenting them to the children.  

“This was a really great experience for our team and a wonderful way to finish our conference” said Kahl Betham, global general manager at Gallagher. “Gallagher has a strong commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work; the smiles on the faces of the children are something that will stay with us for a long time.”

The Elevate Build My Ride event sees corporate teams earn parts to build brand new bikes, which are then given to deserving kids, in person. Thanks to Build My Ride, more 200 children in fostering families from all over New Zealand have been gifted brand new bikes.  

A great initiative nicely done, Team Gallagher. ♦
