I’ve just returned from Manchester this week and had the most amazing time. It was a combination of getting back out there after COVID restrictions which seem to have gone on for forever and ever and ever, and the fact that Vorwerk Annual Conferences are just simply getting better. Last year, we had a virtual conference as we were in lockdown so this in-person event was something everyone was looking forward to.
The aim of these events is always that we have a fabulous time. We should return home well trained, motivated, and feeling inspired to make the most of our Thermomix business with our teams. Vorwerk wants to make the Advisors and Team Leaders feel special and that their hard work is being recognised. And they certainly do a great job of doing that.
From the venue which was the Kimpton Clock Tower in central Manchester, easy to get to from the train station and even easier if you bump into fellow Advisors on the train so can figure it out together. The rooms were perfect with goodie bags on arrival and basically every time I returned to it, little gifts of appreciation we are given. To the main event from Diamond Advisor to the conference and gala, we are wined, dined and thoroughly pampered.

This event was to launch our 2022 with new targets, and new commissions and celebrate our successes from 2021. Those who earned the trip to Siciliy were recognised.

I’m a middle-aged, fortysomething Team Leader, I am usually quite tame at these things. Drinking and dancing are something I leave to the younger folk. I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt. But something happened to me this time. I’m not sure if it was the confinement of the past two years or these goodie bags that got me this time or the walk on the red carpet that made me feel like a Bond Girl rather than Tom Cruise’s sidekick.
I’m not sure if you read but the conference bags – containing exactly the same inside – a book, a pen, a water bottle – had different designs; one said Sleepyhead and the other Dancefloor Diva.
Now, I know which one I am, I know. I’ve said it, I’m a fortysomething woman. But I used to be a Dancefloor Diva, so I thought why not? I didn’t have to be sober or awake in case someone woke up from a nightmare or had a cold in the middle of the night, I didn’t have to bring the milk in before it went back or feed the kitty cats in the morning. I could sleep in. So I went for it. A little drinking, more dancing and a lot of fun. The rest of the night is a little hazy, but I can ensure you I had plenty of fun.
Photos: g, h, i, j – Post Gala Dinner fun. And before you ask, both Fabrzio and I are happily married to different people. He’s just my favourite team member. (Oops, I said it, I have a favourite).
Day two is where the training and meat-of-conference is delivered. Equally good, but not on so little sleep, slightly hungover. I think they do this on purpose as we’re more compliant when they introduce new information to us before sending us arm laden with more gifts home.
So I finish saying I’ve had an amazing few days. Thank goodness the conference was Friday/ Saturday, as I’m home by early Saturday evening and able to rest, relax, and spend time with my family before I go to work on Monday.
I said earlier that the aim of these events had an aim, so let’s see if Vorwerk achieved them.
Ensure we have a fabulous time ✅We should return home well trained✅ motivated✅, and feeling inspired to make the most of our Thermomix business with our teams✅. Vorwerk wants to make the Advisors and Team Leaders feel special✅, celebrate our hard work✅ and recognize our milestones✅.
So thank you to all who made this a fabulous event – to each and every head office staff, the event planner and hotel staff who made the event amazing. To the Advisors and Team Leaders, who made it fun. And the customers, if you didn’t choose me as your Advisor, I wouldn’t qualify for events like this, so thank you.
For everyone else, if you are looking to get a Thermomix on the earn and demonstrate the program, or join as an owner, then do join. Not only is this a nice side-hustle to earn a little income, but it’s an incredibly fun business to be part of. Get in touch, I would love to tell you more about the role and bring you into this fabulous work family. Even the senior management at Vorwerk UK agrees.
