Vorwerk Incentive

How does a free cutter sound?

How does a free Cutter sound? Pretty amazing, right? All you have to do is hop on board our team and make just one sale by 20th May, and voila – that Cutter is yours, absolutely free! And let me tell you, joining our Thermomix family comes with some seriously sweet perks – from snagging a FREE TM6 to enjoying a complimentary Cookidoo subscription, not to mention all the fun incentives like commission, trips, prizes, and more!

I’m just back from Stockholm where Thermomix East London was celebrated in the top 10 branches worldwide for our recruiting, onboarding, and activating newcomers. That means we were successful in making sure that our newcomers qualified and made their sales. How? Well, we’re some of the most knowledgeable and experienced Team Leaders worldwide. If you’re not local, you’d still benefit from my support, so it’s still a win.

We’ve got training sessions lined up every Wednesday, so whether you’re a seasoned Thermomix aficionado or thinking about joining the gang, now’s the perfect time to get involved. The next sessions are:

  • Wed 17th April 2024
  • Wed 24th April 2024
  • Wed 1st May 2043
  • Wed 8th May 2024
  • Wed 15th May 2024

You only need to train one day. So pop those dates in your diary and let’s make some kitchen magic together! If you’re ready to dive in or just fancy a chat about all things Thermomix, drop me a message – I’d love to hear from you!

I want to offer this option of joining our team, earning some additional income, and enjoying the joy of sharing Thermomix with everyone. As you see it’s very easy for newcomers to qualify when you have the right training and ongoing support.

We train every week in the UK, and even if you are not in my area, as your recruiting Advisor, you will benefit from me supporting you throughout your newcomer journey. That explains the ‘ROAR’ and the lion theme last month. We use the acronyms Recruit, Onboard, Activate, and Retain, which essentially we are here to support you on your Thermomix  Advisor journey.

I have always worked part-time in lecturing while running my Thermomix business and looking after my children, and enjoy the freedom and flexibility of my portfolio career.  So why not give it a go? Use the 3-month smart period as a trial, you never know if you could earn for free, or a huge discount on your Thermomix.

Mission Possible: Vorwerk Annual Conference 2022

Mission Accomplished! 

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.

Rewards and Recognitions

I am very proud to work for a company, that not only allows me to conduct this business around my family life and career but also gives rewards and recognitions, to their sales force on the ground.

We recently had our annual (virtual) conference and I was awarded the following accolades:

Consistency Award

The consistency award recognises one sale a month over a period of time. This award was launched 3-years ago, so I’ve been marked as someone who has been consistent for over 36-months.

As an Advisor and Team Leader, it’s one I strive for myself and also encourage my entire team to achieve.

Someone who is consistent always behaves in the same way has the same attitudes towards people or things or achieves the same level of success in something. One sale a month means that the business is viable and the time we take investing in our business activity reaps rewards.

As a Team Leader, I need to make 3 sales to keep my Team Leader status, but what I try and set my team is the aspirational goal of one sale as the first step each month to their business.

Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.

Tony Robbins

Diamond Team Leader

Diamond status was also launched 3-years ago, and I’m delighted to keep my diamond status this year.  Diamond status Advisors enjoy a higher income plan when they achieve 70+ sales in a calendar year from January-December.

When initially launched in September 2018 for the following year, I made my 70th sale on 31st December 2018, by the skin of my teeth. In 2019, I achieve 70 sales by October and last year by August.

I can see my own success mirrored by other Advisors in the UK as Thermomix awareness grows in the UK. In the first year, only 15 UK Advisors achieved diamond status. This went up to 85 the following year and 150 in 2020.

I have been in this business since 2009, when hardly anyone in the UK had heard of Thermomix and when there were so few Advisors on the ground, we were just known by our names. As the years have gone by, this hobby has turned into a passion into a viable business. I have seen 2 new Thermomix launched;  the Thermomix TM5 and TM6 and accessories such as the Thermomix Friend released. I have seen our company grow from a small, family-run subsidiary to being 100% owned subsidiary of Vorwerk with 16 branch offices and over 2,000 Advisors.

And yet, there’s more to come. Lots more for Thermomix and Vorwerk in the UK to strive for. We only have 1% awareness in the UK, so you can imagine even if we double, triple, quadruple over business over the next 3-5 years, there’s a whole load of customers still to reach.

Level 6 Achiever Award

And finally, I achieved the Level 6 Achiever Award for 500 sales and 20 recruits. This level was started way back in September 2014 when the Thermomix TM5 was launched, so that is 500 sales of both Thermomix TM5 and Thermomix TM6s, plus 20 qualified, new recruits to the business.

I’m most proud of this recruitment record. That means I have personally helped twenty people into this business, giving them the opportunity to earn their own Thermomix by enrolling in the earn and demonstrate program. Many of these Advisors have gone on to earn their Thermomix TM5 with 4 sales and then have a viable business; many went onto earn their Thermomix TM6s too when that was launched in 2019. It’s a true honour bringing new team members into the business and showing them that the sky is the limit. As self-employed Thermomix Advisors, we don’t have any minimum job criteria such as in a degree or minimum GCSE or A-Level requirements, 1-2 years of sales experience, or language pre-requisites. All we ask is that the person, male or female is aged over 18-years old and puts in time and effort into their Thermomix business. We provide the training and support and then the sky is the limit.

To end this post, with a final thank you. To you. My customers. My potential customers. My referrals. None of this would be possible with all of you amazing customers. Thank you.

You are the heart and soul of my business. Simply speaking, there would be no me without you. Your loyalty means everything to me. Thank you for being a customer!

Sintra and Friendships

Another organised outing during our Lisbon Vorwerk Incentive Trips weekend was a visit to Sintra and Pena Palace.

With its rippling mountains, dewy forests thick with ferns and lichen, exotic gardens and glittering palaces, Sintra is like a page torn from a fairy tale. Its Unesco World Heritage-listed centre, Sintra-Vila, is dotted with pastel-hued manors folded into luxuriant hills that roll down to the blue Atlantic.

We visited the Palacio Nacional da Pena is one of the finest tourist attractions in Portugal. It exemplifies the 19th century Romanticism style of architecture. The palace is a hedonistic mix of vividly painted terraces, decorative battlements and mythological statues, all of which stand at stark contrast to the lush greens of the Parque de Pena forest.

The interior of the Pena Palace is equally as fascinating, being restored to reflect the decor in 1910, when the Portuguese nobility fled to Brazil to escape the revolution. Surrounding the Palacio da Pena are forested grounds, which continue the design ideals of Romanticism, with hidden pathways, mystical ornaments and stunning vistas.

One of the things I love about these trips is that I get to experience things I wouldn’t usually do. I love to travel but my heart lays in the long-haul. If anyone asks me where I want to go next the answer would be Bali or Malaysia. So by having the opportunity to go on Vorwerk Incentive trips means I get to experience places I wouldn’t dream or generally want to go to.  Lisbon has been one of those pleasant surprises. It’s never been on my to-do list and quite frankly I’m not a big fan of heritage sites but being brought here forces me to do and see things I wouldn’t do on family travels.

Lisbon is only a short flight from London as Mary Luciana describes it perfectly in her recent articleLisbon is having a moment. It is the place on everyone’s lips and its breezy sea views, glossy tiled facades, and red roofs feature on many an Instagram feed. The food surprises, with a depth far beyond the famous pastéis de nata (custard tarts) that are so known and loved. There is history; from the 12th-century Moorish castle that dominates the skyline to the magnificent 16th-century Manueline monastery of Jerónimos, and the bombastic 18th-century heart of Lisbon, built after so much of the city was destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. There is authentic, genuine and welcoming hospitality; and a wave of new and affordable hotels along cobbled streets and flanking bougainvillea-clad squares, all of which brim with a sense of place. For Lisbon, unlike so much of the world, has not gone global: it remains resolutely Portuguese, looking out to sea, with its back to the rest of Europe and its identity intact.

As for me, these incentive trips also force me to spend time with people I wouldn’t normally which pleasantly surprises me too.

My time in Portugal was spent room sharing with Corrine Rowe. Corrine is an Advisor and Team Leader in South East London. Whilst I meet her often at Branch Meetings and Kick Offs, Team Leader planning days and events, it’s only now, can I actually say I now know her. She’s is one of the most incredible, kind, kindred people I have met in my time at Thermomix. Until Lisbon, I never knew what makes her tick, her personal stores or how much we actually have in common even though we are so different.  She’s chef trained, having run catering businesses for many years, but has experience in lots of other things. She’s well-traveled and We’d never really talked like this before. Even if Lisbon has been a total flop, the one thing I would have got out of my experience is a new found friendship with Corrine. That has to be worth it alone.

Not only have I come away seeing a beautiful part of the country, but I’ve come away with a friendship that goes beyond the business.


VIP Lisbon Incentive Trip

To celebrate the launch of our Thermomix® TM6, I am thrilled to announce that I won the exclusive, High Flyers’ Club trip to Lisbon, Portugal’s City of Light! This was a sales and recruitment challenge between the months of April-July 2019 and I won. So apologies for my lack of availability this long weekend for cooking experiences but I’ll be celebrating.

How excited I am?

Voted the world’s leading city break destination in 2018, Lisbon is a charming, vibrant city that blends traditional heritage and art with contemporary experiences and modern nightlife. With its grand squares, awe-inspiring scenery, and seemingly never-ending coastline, Lisbon is the ultimate luxury getaway.

While a trip to Lisbon should be on everyone’s bucket list, a trip to Lisbon with Vorwerk should be on your ‘this year’ list! Our High Flyers’ Club trip will take you on a journey of discovery around this beautiful city, with one-of-a-kind activities and exclusive culinary experiences. Visit historic palaces, experience breathtaking architecture, indulge in world-class cuisine, and immerse yourself in the Portuguese way of life for a few unforgettable days.

Will you be joining us next year? Why don’t you join my team and allow yourself to travel the world by just doing what you love – cooking and sharing your passion with others.
