Avon Representatives from different parts of the country converged trooped to the Mall of Asia Complex for the company’s first ever combined celebration of its Sales Leaders Congress (Leadership Congress) and National Sales Convention (NASCON).
The Leadership Congress kicked off at the SMX Convention Center with “Avolution” – a business symposium that had Rags2Riches President Reese Ruiz and McDonald’s Executive Vice President Margot Torres as motivational speakers. Avon Philippines’ own General Manager Emie Aguilar-Nierves rallied the sales leaders and representatives to “E.V.O.L.V.E.” toward success.
“Avon’s sales leaders and representatives are the true superstars that put the company where it is today. That’s why we encourage them to continue shining their light so that others may be inspired and follow their lead,” Nierves said. She added that the company’s mission to promote women empowerment includes providing the Filipina with quality products and unmatched earning opportunity. “We are committed to bringing beauty for a purpose to the lives of our customers and representatives. Their success remains at the heart of our business.”
Outstanding performances and dedicated hard work were recognized during the Avolutionaries 2017 Recognition and Fellowship Night. Lorina Ravina of Bacolod received the coveted GM’s Best award, while Davao’s Ging Sibal bagged the Hall of Fame award.
