Why employees love working with GDS International!

GDS International was founded more than a decade back and today takes name as one among the fastest growing media companies in the world. The brainchild of Spencer Green, GDS, and the company has always strived to keep its employees happy and the numerous testimonials of the staff at the company are enough proof to this fact.

Ollie Stobbings, 27 who has already spent a few years at GDS International has a similar story to narrate. A firm believer of first impressions, Ollie says she was swept off her feet right when she walked into the GDS office. Sensing fantastic opportunities within a strong sales atmosphere, she felt that it was the right time to venture into a field she knew she would like. And today years down the lane, Ollie is happy that she took this decision.

To put it in her words “I always wanted to work for a company who valued hard work and recognised potential, where the working day was enjoyable and employees were rewarded for outstanding achievement. This is what GDS offers every one of its staff.

I joined GDS International in October 2006 and it’s been an unbelievable journey. I was put on a newly recognised project, headed up by my Sales Director, and it was obvious that this was more than ‘another sales job’: you need to be driven, hungry, enthusiastic, and passionate, motivated, and want to succeed at every level. ”

Ollie also adds that opportunities at the company are never-ending and that the company offers a perfect atmosphere for any individual to achieve success in a short period of time.

Within ten months, I was offered my first management role – as Sub-Manager on GDS International’ flagship product for Europe, and ‘Product of the Year’ 2007. Within 14 months I was promoted to Manager and I now look after a sales team that are as determined to succeed and further their careers as I am”, she adds.


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. They have two children, Finlay and Maya, and live in Bristol, UK.
