Dear Site Members,
Like you, I have been very busy traveling. It has been a great chance for me to promote the power of motivational experiences. I am happy to share with you some of what is going on with Site and an exciting new program where you can win an extraordinary prize, so read on.
I had the privilege to attend the Site EMEA Forum in Berlin in June. It has been a long time since I last visited the capital of Germany, almost 30 years!
We kicked the event off with an interesting Chapter Leader´s meeting – it was maybe too short for so many enthusiastic colleagues from different nations. We promise to extend the duration of the next gathering, as there is a logical need among members to spend more time together to exchange best practices.
Our European event was also the opportunity to train our new membership associate for the European market, Andrea Bozzi, who took this chance to learn about Site and our industry. Andrea is a young, international events student with great skills for communicating in different languages. He will support our goal of developing better daily communications and outreach to our prospects and European members.
Anna Maria Ruffini, the wonderful Chair of the EMEA Forum, was supported by several heroes like Patrick Patridge, who actively promoted the event to every corner of the globe. Miek Egberts was in charge of the educational committee and did a great job, too.
We don’t want to forget our valued partners at Visit Berlin, Heike Mahmoud and Sandra Gollnest, who worked with the host committee to plan unique motivational experiences like urban gardening and the cocktail party at Tempelhof Airport, in conjunction with another 300 attendees of the Mexcon conference.
Site Shines in Orlando
Two weeks after Berlin, I flew to Orlando to witness a powerful event organized by Site Florida, and took the opportunity to celebrate my birthday with Site friends. The Buena Vista Palace resort was the host venue for this conference where more than 60 professionals from Canada, US, and Scotland enjoyed the opportunity to participate in networking events, learning sessions, and, of course, motivational experiences.
We had the privilege to experience exciting, high-speed racing in exotic cars like Ferraris, Porsches and Lamborghinis at the Richard Petty Driving Experience. We also enjoyed a great dinner at Epcot Seven Seas sponsored by Disney. For the final night, Universal Studios welcomed us with a fabulous buffet at Red Coconut Club at City Walk. I want to give special thanks to Sean Mahoney, Site past president and VP Sales of Silver Sea Cruises who made possible my trip.
Beijing is waiting for you.
I hope to climb the Great Wall with you and share exceptional motivational experiences plus first-class education at the International Conference in Beijing, China 14-17 September. Go and register today at www.siteglobal.com.
