Arrow ECS recently spent the day in our offices running an ‘On the Beach’ themed call out day aimed at generating leads. Designed to motivate and enthuse the call centre even more than usual, Julie Gibbs and Natalie Simpson from Arrow ECS joined us for the day and provided a whole host of palm trees, grass skirts and beach balls to decorate the office as well as goodie bags of USB sticks, notebooks, USB chargers etc for the whole CPB family. We held a fancy dress competition and staff were asked to come dressed as though they were going to the beach in shorts, Hawaiian shirts, beach dresses and flip flops.  True to form, with our fabulously funny and flamboyant staff team, everyone took part and entered into the spirit of the event looking to win the prize for the best male and best female beach attire outfits!
