Advancing through global learning

Global Experience Exchange Program (GEEP)



To develop best practice and knowledge sharing across the global practice, RLB introduced the Global Experience Exchange Program (GEEP) in 2017.

Global Experience Exchange Program

RLB employees selected to participate in the program spend up to one month working at one of the firm’s world-wide locations.

The objectives of the program are to build the company’s international network, promote the sharing of business knowledge and expertise, and encourage personal development.

Participants are required to share business process or technical knowledge from their home country, and to learn elements of business and technical practice in the host country to share with their local office upon their return.

Continuing Professional Development sessions

Participants are required to run two Continuing Professional Development CPD sessions – one in the host office and one in their home country. As part of the application process, employees are required to outline the broad idea and content of the CPD session.

Current host offices

Australia – Adelaide, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney
Hong Kong/China – Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai
Middle East – Dubai
New Zealand – Auckland, Wellington
North America – Denver, Phoenix, Hawaiian Islands
South Africa – Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria
South Asia – Manila, Singapore
UK – Birmingham, London, Manchester

  • Our GEEP participants are resilient, enthusiastic and dedicate themselves to their new experiences abroad. I have seen first-hand, the experiences these participants have gleaned shaping their practice in a way that nothing else can.

  • Through site visits organised by RLB in Dubai, I was exposed to exceptional and unparalleled projects which included the luxury hotel Fountain View, Dubai Hill Estate, Expo 2020 and the Louvre Museum, which has the most remarkable structure.

  • My GEEP experience reinforced how important different work, life and cultural experiences can be. For me the best thing about my exchange was working with great people and being part of the Birmingham company culture. The staff were always willing to help and went out of their way to assist me.
