The L.E.A.D. 2019 O2 Empowerment Summit was such an inspirational and incredible two-day event that provided leaders with hands-on training and tools to implement into their businesses and share with their teams!
Over 400 leaders reconnected with their fellow Designers and the Founders and were the first to hear about our announcements for 2019, including our new sponsoring program, updates to our rewards programs, our NEW! “Refer-a-Friend” pilot program and so much more!
In addition to the exciting announcements, we had the privilege of recognizing the Top 10 in Personal Sales, Top 11 in Personal Sponsoring and Top 10 in Team Sponsoring of everyone who attended L.E.A.D.* The earning period for these recognitions was October to December 2018.
The event also included special recognition of five Rising Stars, chosen by the Founders; the Top 50 Designers who are on track to Parliament and the 2018-2019 Advisory Board. The 2019 Youth Council was also announced from stage!
