The Ray White Surfers Paradise team relished the opportunity to build morale and team culture as the spent a morning training with the Titans.
The Ray White team were the winners of the training session prize supplied by Body Science at the recent Gold Coast Mayoress Charity Foundation Ball.
Ray White Surfers Paradise CEO Andrew Bell says he could feel the boost in morale before the session even began.
“We work in a business where it’s fairly individual, and so you look for occasions where you can pull people together,” Mr Bell said.
“We’re really focussed on culture, and on a day like today the guys are laughing and they’ll be telling stories about it for the next couple of weeks.”
The Ray White team were put through a warm-up drill and then into a game of touch football against some of the Titans NRL stars.
Titans fullback Michael Gordon says he wasn’t surprised at how eager the Ray White team were to get one over the NRL squad.
“I think it’s just human DNA – as soon as there’s a game or something, someone wants to win and those competitive juices get going, so it doesn’t surprise me,” Gordon said.
“I hope I’m still active when I’m the same age as some of them. It’s good to see.”
Ray White Director Greg Bell said he would love to be able to train with the team again in the future.
“These are our high-performance sales people, so for them to come here today and mingle with first grade footballers and many stars, it’s a great thrill to train with them and watch them,” he said.
