This year the Direct Selling Association is launching 'PRIDE IN DIRECT SELLING' a one day event for Members of the Direct Selling Association.
There are six Awards where Member Companies will gather to recognise and celebrate the best of our industry and share their successes.
Coupled with this there will be a busy day with interactive workshops for Members to contribute and glean new ideas and initiatives.
Also Supplier Members will be exhibiting and will be available to discuss how they can help Member Companies improve their businesses.
CEO Panel session from company leaders Sandra Whittle of PartyLite, Mike Roberts of Mary Kay and Vicky Beckett of Arbonne
Andy Smith, UK DSA Chairman
One of the great things about our members is that ideas, successes and experiences are shared to help the industry as a whole. This was demonstrated in our panel session at last year's conference, where company leaders Sandra Whittle of PartyLite, Mike Roberts of Mary Kay and Vicky Beckett of Arbonne shared their thoughts and knowledge with delegates.
I believe this to be one of many good reasons to attend this year's new initiative, 'PRIDE OF DIRECT SELLING' where the workshops we have planned will provide the opportunity to meet fellow Members and discuss a range of topics. I am sure you will pick up many nuggets of information that you can implement or adapt to help improve your business.
Finally, please send in your nominations for the Awards. It doesn't matter if your company is small or large, new or long-standing - you all have a chance of winning!
I look forward to seeing you in June.
