Onstage LIVE is a 3 day event which rotates around the three regions. Onstage Local is a one day event which happens in a variety of locations in the other regions.
This time it was the South Pacific's turn to host the three day event and for the first time it was in NEW ZEALAND! Here's some pics....
We always receive a fabulous bag with some nifty things in it. This pic doesn't show it all. But that's the bag, some file folders and a BIG spiral bound notebook.
Jenny in my team stayed in my hotel, a few doors along from me so we arrived together.
At check in, everyone is...well...checking in but also catching up and swapping. Thee is a real buzz in the air.
Inside the stage is ready and the music is playing to get everyone excited.
The event had a fantastic New Zealand flavour throughout. The opening included a welcome by Maori presenters. Very powerful.
And the CEO Sara gave an opening address. She always gives us some great food for thought and this time she focussed on making connections. There was an ongoing theme throughout about how crafting and therefore connecting can help with mental health.
On the evening of the first night the leadership group were treated to a dinner at the Auckland War Museum. This time we were welcomed by Shelli, the co-founder of Stampin' Up! (and Sara's mum!)
This is me with Em who is the Business Development Manager of Queensland and NZ. She did a fabulous job of getting the whole event organised.
Me with Sara!
And with Angela who is also in my team.
One of the fun parts of the 3 day event is Prize Patrol!
Basically everyone wins a prize at some time during the event because SU! looks after us but you never know when your number will come up and what your prize will be!
And then there's an all attendee giveaway or two! We all received one of the fabulous new DSPs.
The next Onstage is November and it's a 'local' event which means a one day event in a few places. Perth, Sydney and Auckland. Looking forward to seeing a bunch of you there!
Here's the members of my team who made it to Auckland!
