Just wanted to share a few pics and memories of Onstage and Centrestage that happened last weekend.
I headed off to Telford on the Friday morning as there were samples I had to drop off for the display boards. I ended up staying to help with some of the setting up which was really fun as I got a few sneak peeks into what everyone would be experiencing the next day. After I checked into my hotel which was only 5 mins walk away I joined Julie and her down line for some lunch, then had a mooch round the shops in Telford before getting ready for Centrestage in the evening. 38 demonstrators were able to attend this event where we had some specialised leadership training and were able to get to know other demonstrators from across the UK over a very tasty dinner.
On the Saturday I was up bright and early to get to the International Centre for 7am as I had offered my services to help direct demonstrators as they arrived. I was given the job of collecting swaps to put on the display boards. That was great fun as I got to see a lot of beautiful projects.
One of the traditions that has developed whenever demonstrators meet together is to give gifts to team members that attend. It's a lovely way to acknowledge their involvement and show appreciation. I have one of my downline attending so gave her a bag made with New In Colour DSP which I filled with goodies, I also gave little bags to my Stampin' Up! sister Julie and her downline.
I recieved a beautifully wrapped gift from my upline Monica, some new cutting plates and some delicious fudge!
Throughout the day we saw recorded presentations from Onstage Live from Salt Lake City, business talks and product features by Uk demonstrators. I think the highlight was being able to get our hands on the new catalogue and have time to peruse it.
One of the reasons I love being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that as a company that they suit the needs of different people and circumstances, there were people at Onstage who just loved the products and being able to buy them at a discount, right up to people who had made it their careers and were celebrating £300,000 in sales.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been a customer over the (nearly) five years I have been a demonstrator, and I look forward to the next five and getting to know you better.
