GDS International gifts wonderful opportunities for personal and professional growth

GDS International is one company which is known to offer the best working atmosphere for its employees. The company is one that sees to it that employees who work with it are satisfied with the working conditions, the pay and the way they are treated. And hence it is no wonder that the company is one of the most sought-after ones by top talents who have passed out of college.

Says Anna Ashby, 25 “Coming out of university, I had clear goals: wipe out my debts and begin a career by the time I was 25. I have always been an ambitious person but, realistically, at 23 I knew it was a tall order. Then I came across GDS.

I had never worked in sales, but the advert said ‘no experience necessary’, and the lure of exceptional commission, promotional opportunities and the possibility to travel abroad led me to apply.

Thankfully, I got the job. I started on March 5th 2007 on a relatively new project for GDS – a luxury lifestyle title: 100Thousand Club.” Anna who is working in the publishing division of GDS International added “I was delighted to be working on a publication that I was interested in and excited to develop. This challenge made me more determined to succeed and to meet my personal targets.”

GDS International is also known for offering their employees enough support and training all throughout their career. “The great thing about GDS is that the support and training does not end after the first week. Continuous sessions on personal development and guidance on cultivating sales techniques from the very best in the company reach across the Atlantic! And the company is extremely generous with its incentives to keep staff motivated, which range from cash prizes to exclusive five-star, all-inclusive holidays! I’m glad that GDS has afforded me such a wonderful opportunity to grow professionally and personally”, Adds Anna.

Anna who has been working with the company since she passed out of university has been promoted twice to full manager running a team of six in the past 14 months.


About Spencer Green

Spencer Green founded GDS Publishing Ltd in October 1993 to specialise in industrial, government-led publications for the burgeoning Chinese market. The company launched over forty business-to-business titles, was name-checked alongside Tony Blair on China’s national news as ‘best for Chinese business’, and – following a move into India – deemed to be ‘of national importance’ by the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade. In 1998, GDS Publishing became GDS International and launched its first conference, Enterprise China. The hugely successful Enterprise series of conferences was rolled out across China and Latin America in the next two years. In 2000, GDS International launched its first Senior Executive Summit under the ‘Next Generation’ banner. This became the catalyst for nine years of 25% year-on-year growth... and 40% growth in 2010. In 2011, GDS held over 70 Summits for C-level Executives from a wide range of industries and across the globe, and eight digital marketing conferences. Today, GDS International is determined to become the world’s no. 1 business-to-business media and services company. It’s going to be an exciting journey! Spencer is married to Emily.
