Gates donates bikes to kids at sales conference

Gates Australia, a “global leader in power transmission and fluid transfer solutions,” ended its 2023 Annual Sales Conference in charitable fashion with one of the activities culminating in some great corporate philanthropy.

The activity involved teams racing against the clock to assemble children’s bikes for a charitable cause. The team-building efforts created a meaningful and rewarding experience for all – and new rides for kids who needed them.

“Under the guidance of XL Events’ facilitators, the teams eagerly embraced the challenge, utilising their problem-solving skills, communication, and cooperation to complete the bicycles in record time. As the final screws were tightened and the last finishing touches applied, a sense of accomplishment filled the air,” Gates Australia says. “

With the aim of creating a memorable and impactful experience for its employees, Gates Australia partnered with XL Event, team building market leader and supporter of kids charities and nonprofit organisations. XL Events orchestrated a series of engaging exercises that not only reinforced cooperation and coordination but also contributed to a worthy cause.” The conference, held in Gates Australia’s head office in Dandenong South, served as a forum for the company to engage, motivate, and inspire its sales teams while enhancing collaboration and teamwork.

The teams then met the kids who would be receiving the newly built bikes. “The joy and excitement on the faces of the children were truly priceless, leaving a lasting impact on the Gates Australia team. This heartwarming experience reinforced the importance of giving back to the community and showcased Gates Australia’s commitment to corporate social responsibility.”
