It was a beautiful day in Salt Lake City for thousands of people who get paid simply for being nice to people! Day 3 of the Revolution Convention kicked off with the Friday Morning General Session, the first ever SOC Expo and wrapped up with the Oscar-style Awards Gala. It was a jam-packed day full of special announcements, learning new things and outstanding SendOutCards recognition! Read the full recap below.
Friday Morning General Session
One of the most highly anticipated moments of the convention happened this morning… the unveiling of our Revolution stage! As our distributors poured into the grand ballroom, they were immediately immersed into the excitement and power of being part of this incredible movement. Our guests were greeted by the incredible music of DJ Steve as they took their seats and waited for the event to start.
After an action packed video clip of the upcoming releases and entertainment by singer Alex Perrone, founder and CEO Kody Bateman took the stage to give his Friday morning keynote, which included a sophisticated look at the evolution of SendOutCards, upcoming releases, and a teaser for the June Summer Sizzle Incentive!
Upcoming releases include a reinvented website, also known as SOC 2.0. A beta version of the site currently has a projected release date of July 2014. Also announced was the upcoming new mobile app and Sendcere — the SendOutCards “Pinterest,” which all Revolution attendees received exclusive access to!
Following the announcements, Kody went live to President of Field Operations Steve Schulz and VP of Marketing Vanessa Hunter inside the first-ever SOC Expo. Steve and Vanessa gave a tour of various department booths before the crowd joined the staff inside the expo!
We had a fantastic time at our first-ever SOC Expo and it looked like our attendees did too! From the Sendcere demo and presentation, to the Talk Spots, brownie sample, and quirky games, the expo was the full of exciting, fun and informative booths all about SendOutCards! Each of the different corporate office teams were represented at the expo, each sharing unique aspects of their department with the Revolution attendees. Our staff loved mingling and getting to know all the attendees by sharing our love of this incredible business. One team, one dream!
