Putting on the Ritz - Top Recruiter

28th September 2018

Running throughout the year (January - December 2018), our Achievement Awards are given to our Top Sellers, Recruiters, Organisers, Mentors and Leaders for both new and established Organisers.

We are thrilled that on Friday 22nd February 2019, we will be inviting the top three Organisers in each of the six categories to join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of Usborne Publishing at Usborne House in London, followed by an exclusive dinner in a private dining room at the world-famous five-star luxury hotel - The Ritz, and an overnight stay at the Washington Mayfair hotel!

This month we spoke to one of our potential 2018 winners, Sarah Higgs, who is currently in third place in our Top Recruiter category. Sarah is a great example of how it's still not too late to put yourself in the running for our Achievement Awards.

Here's how Sarah got herself back onto the leaderboard for Top Recruiter:

'From the start of the year, I knew I wanted to aim to be at the Ritz in 2019, but I completely lost focus and drifted in my business. In July I had fallen off the leaderboards completely and decided to pause and take a moment to reflect, write some new goals and totally readdress my business and what I needed to do to get back on track.

I knew I needed to be able to keep track of what is going on. So, with this in mind, I went shopping for some new stationery and created a new chart to keep track of everyone who joined the team from the first of July. I wrote in all their incentives dates and when they placed their first order and unlocked schools. It made keeping track of everyone so much easier. The results have been amazing and it was so exciting to see my name back on the leaderboard and especially in third slot.

I really would love to be at the Ritz next year, but if I make it or not, I know my business is in a much stronger place by trying to get there, than if I had just admitted defeat.' 

Inspired by Sarah and want to know how you can join us at The Ritz in 2019? Find out more about our Achievement Awards criteria here. It's still not too late to achieve this fantastic incentive!

We are very excited to be able to celebrate the successes of more Organisers than ever next year, and can't wait to shout about all your amazing achievements for 2018!
