Leadership 2014: Day 3 Highlights

Saturday was our last day of Leadership Conference. We had a late start, which was nice since we were out so late for Make & Takes the night before. The first thing on the agenda was an "All Attendee Class" and I have to say, I was nervous that it was going to be dry and boring. It was anything but!! They did the "class" game-show style and it was hilarious to watch the antics of host Brian Pilling and the guest panel. Each panel was playing for a different color wrist brand. The fabulous Bonnie Thurber was playing for my color: Elegant Eggplant and even though she did great, she didn't win. But they were generous and gave prizes to all of the wrist band colors! I received the Petite Petals stamp and coordinating punch. Woo hoo!!
They covered information like best selling-stamp sets and accessories, recruiting and sales numbers for last year, and revealed some demonstrator stories about embarrassing workshop moments. One fun announcement: Stampin' University will open soon! It's a re-organized training section on the Demonstrator Website to help demonstrators learn both techniques and also how to place orders and run a business.

The class ended with an all-attendee giveaway -- a new stamp set that will be available in the new catalog this summer. It's so cute! I can't wait to share samples with you!

After lunch, we gathered again for the last General Session. Shelli did a stamping presentation and showed a variety of banner projects that were oh so cute! And we received ANOTHER all-attendee giveaway: the Language of Love stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.
The big announcement was about Convention. It will now be called "Inspire. Create. Share." and more exciting -- new demonstrators who signed up since July 1, 2013 will have the opportunity to attend Convention for FREE!! (Registration is usually $295, so this is a HUGE!!) If you have ever thought about being a demonstrator and attending Convention - now is your chance to do it on a budget!

It's always sad when it's time for a conference to be over. Time flies when you're having fun, I guess! I can't wait to get together with all my Stampin' friends again this summer in Salt Lake City. I hope to see you there too!
