This past weekend, several of our team members had the chance to return to our annual international New York Gala. After winning an office competition, corporate trainers Connor and Chris joined our director, Alex, and assistant manager, Jacob, on the trip to the Big Apple.
While at the gala, Chris and Connor had the chance to meet and network with leaders from around the world. They both commented on how easy it was to simply go up to a vice president or director and ask them questions about how they go to where they are, and what their biggest piece of advice is. These trainers also got the opportunity to hear from several newly promoted consultants who work with different marketing firms to better their systems. These consultants each pointed out that having an entrepreneurial mindset is the key to success. They advised treating each day as another chance to better yourself and your future, and to understand the opportunity you have available to you, rather than squandering it. The biggest takeaway for Connor and Chris was realizing how important having goals is. Each of the people they met had a vision for themselves and goals on how they would achieve that vision. Since their return, both have made it a goal to grow enough to attend the gala next year and the year after.
All four of our team members also got to spend time seeing various parts of New York City. As huge Beatles fans, Chris and Alex made sure the group got to see Strawberry Fields in Central park. Named after the popular Beatles tune, Strawberry Fields is a tribute to singer songwriter John Lennon. They had a chance to eat at Halal Guys, a restaurant featured on the Food Network. The last highlight was a trip to Times Square where our team members got some excellent photos.
The opportunity for learning and sightseeing is one Alex, Jacob, Connor, and Chris will remember! We look forward to hearing about what else they took away from the trip!
