THE UK’S best boss ever surprised his entire team with a £7,000 trip to Ibiza, covering all costs and even throwing in Calvin Harris tickets.
The 34-year-old wanted to celebrate with his staff after the best quarter ever since his personal branding start-up, Great Influence, began in 2018.
So the generous employer forked out an eye-watering £7,000 on the sun-soaked destination, a Spanish island known for its electric nightlife and stunning scenery.
The young founder booked all the flights, lunches, dinners and entertainment for his team, as well as arranging tickets to a Calvin Harris residency.

And this trip is not the only bonus Ashley has given to his lucky team.
In order to film the incredible Ibiza surprise and capture his team’s excitement, Ashley lured his team into a meeting room pretending they needed to attend a filmed workshop.
