How was the view from up there, Kynect 100?! We think it’s safe to say the first retreat for these top movers and shakers was a massive success!
“This is what Kynect does: it connects you with people from different places, races, nationalities and cultures. Thank you, Kynect, everything was magnificent! If you weren't there, you have to live it, feel it. I encourage you to believe that you will be on the next one. You were born a champion, and that is what you are.” – Managing Director Olga Marquez
Friday: Welcome to the Top
The retreat kicked off with a pair of celebrations at the stunning Westin Kierland Resort & Spa. The Kynect 100 mixed and mingled before being warmly welcomed by the corporate team. Then it was off to a magical dinner under the stars.
"Wow, wow, wow is all I can say about the Kynect 100 Retreat in Arizona! We have only been in this business for 7 months and got qualified to earn this trip which is mind blowing! Not to mention spending time with the corporate staff, training with John Addison and top ranked Associates…simply amazing! Oh, and let’s not forget all the pampering. We are in total awe! Thank you Kynect for all that you do for us." – Senior Director Eva Palacios
Saturday: Elevated Learning
Achievers rose bright and early for an exclusive training from success and leadership expert John Addison, Executive Director Michael J. Lerman and National Director Dr. Terry Young.
“Success is about how you think. You’ve got to fight. When you hit a set back, you’ve got to fight harder. The natural state of the human brain is to be negative. You have to weed out those thoughts daily. If you’re a leader, you have to be the loudest voice in your team’s head. Be positive.” – John Addison
“What a pleasure and honor to be around people who want more in life and don’t settle or make excuses. When you surround yourself with like-minded people who are naturally self-motivated, it keeps you on your toes to achieve even more. We believe, we are unstoppable, and we are CHAMPIONS!” – Executive Director Shane Callwood
After a day full of learning, we whisked the group away for a breathtaking surprise excursion: a hot air balloon cruise over the desert!
At sunset, the balloons touched down in a secluded area where Achievers were met with a champagne toast, live music and a lavish meal. The Kynect 100 spent the rest of the evening dancing and having fun under the full moon.
“Well, the greatest company in the world did it again! It’s hard to explain how thankful and blessed we are. Honestly, I don’t know what to say other than thank you! So proud of the people on our team that earned this trip. They are CHAMPIONS! We can’t wait to get back home and share this opportunity to the world.” – Executive Director Jeff Stier
We were honored to celebrate the Kynect 100 and watch so many rising stars get a taste of the Top Leader life. Thank you again for carving a path for the future of Kynect and setting an example for all to follow!
“We put a challenge out there, and you are the 100 people that stepped up and said ‘I want to be there.’ Thank you very much for answering the call. We will not forget that. We will always remember this, and we will be in touch because you are the leaders of the present and the future.” – CEO Bouncer Schiro
