It’s coming! And we can’t wait!
At this month’s company update meeting, our own Robynn Rowen was invited to talk about next month's North America convention. Robynn is on our Events team, and she’s deeply involved in making convention happen. She isn’t, however, often the center of attention, and she was a little nervous about her moment in the spotlight—even if it was just in front of her fellow Stampin’ Up! colleagues.
She did amazing!
If I hadn’t already been excited about convention, I definitely would have been after hearing her! She talked mostly about how rewarding it is to attend convention and interact with our demonstrators. We all love our demonstrators, and the opportunity to meet so many of them face-to-face and share our enthusiasm and passion for the work we’re all involved in really is one of the highlights of convention for all of us.
She also talked about the long hours and the hard work and feeling dead-tired at night. . . and she made it sound fun! Not sure how she did that, but she did.
And then she ended her presentation with a little surprise treat bag for the hundreds of employees who attended the meeting! She had stayed up the night before, tucking a Bliss chocolate (“Attending convention is bliss!”) and a Laffy Taffy (“Lots of laughs at convention!)” in each bag, then tying each one up with a piece of ribbon. What an act of heartfelt love and commitment—to her job, to her coworkers, and to Stampin’ Up!
I followed Robynn and, frankly, didn’t need to say much. She’d said it all!
I love working with people like Robynn; Stampin’ Up! is full of fabulous individuals just like her who are so committed to loving what they do and sharing what they love.
And we’re all VERY excited about being at convention in THREE SHORT WEEKS with more people who feel the same way we do!
