As I look through this magazine I am reminded of how much USANA Australia and USANA New Zealand have achieved so far in 2015, and I’m excited about what’s to come.
The stories about International Convention are a reminder about the importance of events at USANA. These fill the tank, they develop strong skills and mindset, they uplift and inspire, and no wonder the attendees at these events are the same Associates that go on to new levels of success. In 2015 both Australia and New Zealand had record levels of attendance at International Convention, we filled planes, we crammed into hotel rooms, we lived it and loved it. It was inspiring to see a group of Diamonds organise and attend Leadership Training at Harvard University prior to Convention. Personal development is our joint responsibility and this group helped demonstrate through their actions, how important a priority this is. Make sure all of your team are heading to Celebration in January. These events will transform your business for the year ahead.
We have also welcomed exciting trainers to our shores. We’ve hosted Diamond Directors Anna and Yvan Lozanno, and more recently 3-Star Diamond Director Michael Callejas who inspired record numbers across Australia and New Zealand, as well as 2-Star Diamond Director Min Li, who wowed audiences with his Leadership and Business Development training, and was partnered perfectly with Liao Xiaohua a world class health professional.
In 2015 we have welcomed more elite athletes into Team USANA from Australia and New Zealand and than ever before. As we head towards the 2016 Rio Olympics, I know many of our athletes are in final preparations, and we look forward to many personal bests and hopefully a few medals as well!
As I write these words, the new Indonesian office prepares to welcome their first guests. This new market is filled with opportunity and promise. It’s easy to lose sight of the opportunity and promise here in beautiful Australia and New Zealand. We have a population in desperate need of quality supplements. We have Leaders who stand tall on the world stage, right here at home. The place is here and the time is now. I urge you to take advantage of everything USANA has to offer, and to know that every member of the corporate team is here to support you. The words we live by every day is that everything we do, helps you love life and live it! P.S. I’m looking forward to attending the 2015 Growth Incentive in Cairns in May 2016 together with some very special guests. Will you be there? This is one not to miss!
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas!
David, Executive Vice President-Pacific
