You had us at Aloha

​Our Ambition & AccountAbility leaders have a special way of showing appreciation to our team members in Sydney and Melbourne every year. A coveted reward called the "Dream Team" is an all-expenses-paid trip to a stunning, sunny location as a token of gratitude for their exceptional efforts.

This year the team travelled to the exotic Oahu in Hawaii. Mandatory activities included boogying every single night, balmy hikes through the mountains, paddle boarding in the clearest of oceans, and eating at The Cheesecake factory at midnight. Living in the moment and embracing superb company; this was a trip to remember!

Our top performers are individuals who consistently exhibit exceptional attitudes and effort levels in striving for personal excellence, regardless of their position. It's evident that achieving greatness in this industry requires a combination of qualities such as diligence, perseverance, inquisitiveness, and a great sense of humor.

The trust, camaraderie, and admiration shared among this year's Dream Team were extraordinary.

To our 2023 Dream Team, you are truly remarkable, and we are grateful for your exceptional work.

​Below are just a few of the mentioned highlights from the trip!

​"Our day trip exploring the island while being entertained all the way by Gina's singing. I had the best Poke bowl at Hale'iwa Town ..... also 99% sure I spotted Kelly Slater about to go out for a surf <3" - Jenny McDonald, Office Coordinator, Ambition Group

"Winning my Breakdance off on the way home from the Cafe Club and... casually hopping into the middle of the dance floor with Gina Morley and putting on a memorable exhibition in break dancing." - Chris Crolla, Client Engagement Director, Ambition & AccountAbility

"Being able to go on a trip with a group of people… just good vibes and fun." - Brendan Blewitt, Principal Consultant, AccountAbility

"The opportunity to connect with colleagues on a deeper level and celebrate how far we’ve come as a group. Also, the lu’au was captivating and quite spiritual actually." - Michael Dowds, Client Services Manager, AccountAbility

"An 8:30pm dance party in the Moana Surf Rider hotel, definitely a highlight of the holiday - everyone getting up dancing. We delayed our table at the Cheesecake factory till 10pm as we were having too much fun. Another highlight was making the team do boomerangs at every meal but by the end, we nailed it." - Gina Morley, Principal Consultant, AccountAbility

​"Just being there with such a flexible, open-minded, and fun group who really enjoyed each other's company was my highlight. No drama, just good times." – Adam Forster, Managing Director of Australia
