Jodi Durrant On The Exciting First Day
Friday, March 12, 2010
It's arrival day for the Team Elite Executives to the Grand Wailea! I started my day out with a quiet walk on the beach at 6 a.m. before the Team Elites started arriving. This is always an extra busy day for the events team since everyone is checking into the hotel at the same time. It’s been fun catching up with the many Team Elite friends I've made over the years.
To start, the Team Elites picked up their welcome packets and picked up their shirts that they will wear in the group photo. It sure made my day when the Team Elites said this resort was spectacular and they loved the views of the ocean! Blake also commented that he loves this resort during rehearsal for the General Session. It is such a beautiful place!
Tonight we enjoyed the Welcome Party on Chapel Lawn which is located just steps from the beach. I was so happy the weather was perfect and the sunset beautiful. Blake, Steve, Sandie and Truman joined the party and remarked what an incredible 2009 Nu Skin had and that 2010 will be even bigger. They congratulated the Team Elite's for the their success and said they were looking forward to meeting and talking with them over the next few days.
The group enjoyed great food and several hula dancers performed to traditional Hawaiian music. I'm looking forward to a great week. Tomorrow is the general session--I'm particularly looking forward to Joe and Truman's speeches.
