    Director Forming Friendships & Sharing Recipes at Directors Meetings

    I think when they form friendships with others who attend- they come to see their friends. For me- tasting and hearing about new recipes and tips is key when I attend my directors meetings. My husband and I are empty nesters and try to eat healthy- so I can't try a ton of recipes at home...

    Why You Should Consider Attending Team Meetings

    Here's my 2 cents for what it's worth! ;) I was able to attend a few meetings before my recruiter gave up Pampered Chef for personal reasons & I moved up to a Director who wasn't local & whom I'd never met. From that point, I wasn't close enough to ANY Director to attend meetings. There...

    Director Improving Meeting Incentives with Drawings and Prizes?

    I am thinking about changing drawings/prize opportunities at team meetings. We were doing tickets for good behavior (sales, TL, SC, recruiting, helping with meeting etc.) and on time drawing.
