Hello again! It's been a while - work has simply been too hectic lately. Last weekend I accompanied our MD Assistant Mikaela to Ningbo and joined a Leader's Meeting, where I also arranged individual interviews with some of our most prominent Leaders. Here's a recap of our eventful day:
We took the express train to Ningbo which took around three hours. Thank God for air-conditioned first-class carriages!
The view from our window was spectacular; luscious hills, green crops and blank lakes
As we approached civilization, we saw many constriction sites
It was a lovely day but hot as hell, so we nearly fainted when we got off the train. Two of our Leaders picked us up in a shiny BMW and drove us around town for a while.
The Leader's Meeting was hosted in a downtown hotel, and consisted of new product presentations and inspiring speeches from our new Leaders.
On the way home after the meeting, Mikaela and I even had time for some sight-seeing!
One taxi ride later and we were back at the train station with an hour and a half to departure - leaving plenty of room to eat McFlurry's and chitchat. We finally got back to Shanghai around 10 pm, exhausted but content. My personal interviews resulted in some surprising insights, which have been very useful for my summer project. Thank you for this excellent weekend, Oriflame!
Next time, I'll show you what it looks like when me and my colleagues hit the bars for a Ladies Night. Stay tuned!
