Conference 2012 Awards Gala
Our Awards Gala is something I look forward to every year – and every year it gets more glamorous and more rewarding. This year, our theme was Hollywood glamour: old and new. Our lovely hosts, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (aka Customer Experience Manager Darren Cullen and CEO Amelia Warren) waltzed on stage to welcome our Consultants.
New Epicure Leaders since April 2012 received a bottle of Epicure wine; new Senior Leaders were awarded with special star anise charm bracelets. I also had the honour to recognize our Directors for their incredible achievements. Our ‘Rookies of the Year’: Lynne Prud’homme for sales, and Amanda O’Brien for sponsoring, each received a copy of Oh the Places You’ll Go by someone I have always admired: the ingenious Dr. Suess.
The Caring & Sharing Award is something very dear to my heart, and this year it was awarded to Executive Director Sylvie Cousineau. Kudos on your amazing success, Sylvie. You deserve it. It’s a pleasure to be in the company of so many courageous women and I’m honoured to celebrate their achievements.
I also received a special surprise: a cupcake for Epicure’s 15th birthday presented by someone who’s been an important part of Epicure since before it was Epicure, our Executive Vice President Marc Trottier.
Here are some photos from this memorable Gala.
