I just returned from our National Convention at Caesar’s Palace in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada. This is one of my favorite events because it gives us the opportunity to reward our top Consultants from across the nation.
As a thank you to the husbands and significant others who support our Consultants businesses, they were treated to a one-of-a-kind golf outing at the beautiful Badlands Golf Resort. Donning new golf jackets with the Pure Romance insignia, the men bonded while the Consultants mingled and networked back at the hotel.
Everyone re-convened that evening when we officially kicked off the Convention with a 80s themed Welcome Reception; not surprisingly, our Consultants know how to have a party – with over 95% of them dressing up in 80s attire! Every fashion statement was represented from the 80s rocker, to the preppy valley girl, it was truly a fantastic time!
Early in the morning, we met for a general session where they had the opportunity to learn about new ways to promote and enhance their businesses, as well as be the first to discover the new products Pure Romance would be incorporating into the line. In addition, they were treated to distinguished speakers such as Certified Professional Behavior Analyst, Brian Parsley and Marriage Counselor and Sex Therapist, Dr. Marty Klein.
During the formal Awards Ceremony that evening, Consultants were honored for their hard work and dedication during 2008. Probably one of the most exciting surprises of the evening included our unexpected announcement that we would be offering our car winners the alternative option of walking away with a $10,000 check! Everyone gathered in an adjacent ballroom to collectively celebrate at the after party.
The last day of Convention marks the famous “Shopping Room” where Consultants can cash in hard-earned Convention Credits earned the previous year. Convention Credits are as good as cash in our Shopping Room, filled with everything you can imagine – Coach purses, electronics, home goods, kitchen appliances, outdoor – you name it! While waiting to shop, they were also treated to Training Workshops and Q&A with a handful of Consultants who make up the “Pure Romance elite” when it comes to their commitment and achievements.
I want to extend a thank you to all of the Consultants and our staff for making this year’s 16th Annual Convention yet another success!
