Inspire.Create.Share. 2015: Gold Coast

Hi everyone, this is Sara again. I’m taking over the blog today so that I can share a little bit about our most recent event in the South Pacific. I love having a chance to spend time with our amazing demonstrators! And the day we arrived in Gold Coast could not have been more beautiful. Check out the beach!

We began our event with a leadership day where we discussed the new Compensation Plan in detail. Demonstrators commented that the presentations really helped them as they prepare to transition to the new plan in October. It was a great event for our demonstrator leaders.

That evening we boarded buses to attend Managers’ Reception at the Australian Outback Spectacular. We visited a bit before the show, then entered a large arena where we enjoyed wonderful food and a fun show about the high country and famous Australian historical characters. Good times!

Thursday morning I was honored (and a little emotional!) to open the first General Session. We unveiled the new catalog and enjoyed some amazing stamping presentations. The session was available online as well, so that all of our markets could watch the unveiling. I love how excited demonstrators are to receive the new annual catalog every year and I have to say . . . I’m SO happy we’re bringing these launches back to our events! 

Over the course of the event, we had three Inspire. Create. Share workshops and Make & Take sessions, a demonstrator panel that discussed their strategies regarding the new Compensation Plan, and In a Nutshell classes. I really appreciated being able to learn how demonstrators approach their businesses in different ways. All of the classes provided tools and ideas for demonstrators that were both applicable and actionable. Loved them!

Awards Night is always a highlight for me because I truly appreciate being able to recognize our top-performing demonstrators. They inspire me (as I’m sure they do everyone else)!

Our After-Party was 80s-themed and lots of fun! I was told the band was super-popular in the South Pacific during the 80s and demonstrators were ecstatic to see them there. This crowd definitely knows how to have fun! The dance floor was hopping, the photo booths were packed, and there were smiles all around. Pretty sure there were sore feet, too! It was a great night!

We wrapped up our last day in Gold Coast with more stamping, plus a hilariously fun game show with demonstrator participation. It was an amazing finish to a wonderful convention.

What a pleasure to be with our demonstrators again in the South Pacific! I loved being able to spend time visiting with them, snapping pics, and learning side-by-side with them. Our demonstrators are the best!
