For Spencer Green, the chairman of GDS International, a company that undertakes media and events in Bristol, it all began at a small scale. Spencer Green, GDS International, was founded 17 years ago in England. Like most wannabe companies in the early 90s, GDS International was on a massive economic wave successfully producing event and media. The company ever since its inception has invested time and money in researching on how to play their role in the best of manner and emerge winners.
Distinct from other companies in their early years, Spencer Green was determined to take GDS International to promising markets in places such as India and China. The company always took on a priority note to learn the culture, philosophy and how these countries did business, and how GDS International could serve them in coming years. Over time Spencer Green’s GDS International grew rapidly and has kept it performance consistent even during the economic crisis.
GDS International is now covering all major business verticals in every corner of the earth. And the company is continuing to grow globally. The lessons learnt from Spencer’s time in the emerging markets of the 90s have paid dividends today. GDS International now has offices in Bristol, Cardiff, Kuala Lumpur, Miami, New York and Sydney, and is soon to expand its operations in South America.
