Mike was first take advantage of our new sabbaticals, taking his wife Jenni and baby daughter Ruby to the other side of the world.
Highlights from their trip included a drive along Australia’s Great Ocean Road, a tour of the Barossa wine region Smith Corp trainer Craig Wilkes and time travelling in Tasmania. On their way home they spent some time in Singapore – the highlight being cocktails on top of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel .
When asked what he thought of SmithCorp’s newly introduced sabbaticals, Mike said “It has been brilliant. I would encourage everyone to take advantage of them. We all work really hard day to day. I’ve always been a big believer in using all your full holiday allowance to get away and stay fresh throughout the year but I think this extended period has been invaluable and it’s come at a great time for me. It has allowed me to switch off from work, spend time with my family and friends, get to know Ruby and really enjoy some of her early days whilst she has been learning to crawl. Jenni and I already have plans in place for our next sabbatical which I’ll be eligible for in less than four years time”.
