Have you been craving fresh inspiration? Does your imagination need some spark? Are you eager to dig into your business goals for 2017? Have no fear – Founders’ Circle is here!
Over the course of three days in early May, our key Boundless stakeholders – Sales Professionals, Corporate Team Members, and Preferred Supplier Partners – came together for a whirlwind of new products , strategic meetings, peer-to-peer working sessions, and awards ceremonies in downtown Austin, Texas for our annual sales meeting known as Founders’ Circle. After visiting with 18 of our most strategic supply partners and participating in small group roundtables, our attendees left feeling inspired by their peers and excited to bring fresh ideas to their client base.
This year’s theme centered around the Elements – Earth, Fire, Water, and Air – to demonstrate the holistic quality of the Boundless process and to serve as a fun tie-in with Boundless Cares, our socially responsible initiative that focuses on the global, local, and internal impact that our business has in the communities we serve.
Keeping in line with our Core Value “Embrace the Fun,” we kept a healthy dose of entertainment sprinkled throughout the event. The hilarious “Boundless Network Live” production from Kenny Wottrich and the corporate team kicked off the opening session, closely followed by the ice-breaker session with Breakthrough Play’s “Chief Play Officer” Gary Ware, a creative master that specializes in using improv and play to inspire and motivate corporate teams to find the fun in the day-to-day workload.
Later on the first evening, we held our yearly awards ceremony in which we recognized not only the financial accomplishments of our Sales team, but also the contributions of our Corporate team and Supplier partners to the overall success of Boundless as a company.
Under the twinkle lights of East Austin’s Springdale Farm, we were (and are!) thrilled to celebrate this year’s Green Jacket recipient, Wanza Madrid, along with the award winners listed below. Wanza has been an integral part of the Boundless corporate team for nearly 8 years and is an invaluable resource to our Sales team and clients, currently serving as VP of Client Services as well as our resident Cruise travel expert (and if you haven’t read her blog on planning for the perfect cruise experience, you should do so here!).
The Green Jacket is the Boundless version of a Lifetime Achievement Award and recognizes the commitment of an individual to the Core Values and the success of those around them. Congratulations to Wanza and all of the award winners for your achievements!
Coming to a close with a scenic boat tour on Lake Austin and an insider look at trends from industry experts Gemline and SanMar, this year’s event gave us the opportunity to leverage and share the expertise and creativity of our fantastic team and partners while recognizing last year’s key contributors to our overall success.
Cheers to another year of being Boundless!
