Organiser of the Month - Anna Koe
15th July 2016
"From the very first moment I met Anna at a baby and toddler show, I knew I wanted to work with her! She gets the balance of professionalism and friendship spot on. When we need to work, we do - when we need to have a laugh, we certainly do!
From day one, Anna has always been a great Mentor. Her support through the Quickstart Programme was pitched to perfection. She knew exactly when to encourage and nudge me, without being pushy or over the top. When she first mentioned building a team, I said "no thank you!". Anna listened and understood my reasons, but reminded me whenever we spoke that I had the attributes to do it, and she helped me believe it too. I achieved my Kit Boost and Kit Refund with her support and she then mentioned Recruiter's Reward - "let's go for it", I finally said. Together, we made a plan of where I would find my recruits and I set about doing it, achieving it on the final deadline day!
The next big thing Anna did for me was to convince me to attend the Spring Conference and Gala Awards 2016. It was here that I decided I wanted to build my team further and aim for Team Leader. Again, Anna was there every step of the way. Supporting me, coaching me and giving me the belief that I could achieve it. In March, my team tripled and I promoted. Anna sent me a lovely card and gift which was completely unexpected but very much appreciated.
Anna (shown on the left) continues to support me in everything I do. I have qualified as a Team Leader every month since qualification and I couldn't do it without her coaching questions and help with volume mapping. We have regular contact and she is always a huge support to me in achieving my next goal. Meeting Anna at that baby and toddler show was truly life changing for me and I thank her for sharing Usborne with me and encouraging me to do the same with others. Anna, you're an amazing Mentor; my inspiration; and I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate you."
Thank you so much for sharing, Eloise. Congratulations, Anna - we will be sending you a copy of Garden Sounds (our July Book of the Month) shortly.
