We’ve just returned from our second annual POWER Symposium that Amoena co-sponsors with Juzo. POWER is a gathering of Amoena and Juzo retailers from across the country. What a fantastic week: Not only did we have excellent speakers and guests – I especially enjoyed the keynote from Marshal Cohen on new consumer trends – but we also had a whole lot of fun. It happened to be Juzo’s 100th anniversary so we all enjoyed a lively week with plenty of powerful inspiration and ideas for continued success in 2012.
Conferences can be hit or miss. But POWER was a winner. It was the right people at the right place for the right amount of time. The conference was packed with our retail partners – all ready to empower themselves with the most up-to-date information and skills to help them be the best they can be. And the conference delivered on all fronts.
Amoena’s retail partners are the heart and soul of what continually makes Amoena a success. So I was delighted to spend time with them, hearing stories, making new connections, and hopefully instilling some excitement about great things in store. At Amoena we listen closely to our retailers because they’re interacting with our customers on a daily basis.
There was another inspiring facet to POWER which may be invisible to the casual onlooker. All of POWER’s attendees share a passion for cancer awareness. Many survivors, and many stories of strength and perseverance.
Thanks to all of you for your continued confidence and trust. And please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or ideas that you want to share.
