Last month I had the pleasure of joining Dexter Howard Events, yet again, this time in beautiful Cancun Mexico, for Intelysis' Top Performers Club Trip at the Ritz Carlton. This new client was a blast to work with (besides the fabulous location). You could definitely see the friendships among the different participating companies, all encouraging and pushing each other to be better through relaxing and sharing details of their last year of sales and experience.
Intelysis was great on keeping the activities interesting by peppering the days with fun events like tequila tasting, pool parties, authentic cuisine, and an AMAZING traditional Mayan ballet (see the images close to the end of the post!). I also met the coolest DJ/violinist couple from Vegas that rocked the whole event. I would describe them, but I bet you can pick them out of the images yourself.
I was lucky enough to participate in one of the excursions offered to the participants, and had a blast ziplining and driving a four wheeler through the jungle of Playa del Carmen. The bright colors, alone time (since I do traveling gigs solo), and the wonderful company gave me a great chance to chill, reflect, and recharge for what 2018 is ramping up to be. It was also quite inspiring to see all of the salesmen (& saleswomen of course!) from across the nation excited about their careers and enjoying their accomplishments. That is the thing I like most about corporate retreats. You get to see the culture of the company first hand, and I always walk away inspired, ready to hit the ground running, and with a few more friends than when I arrived.
I hope to work with this wonderful company again in the future, to see them grow, to develop a relationship with those I would have the honor of seeing on a regular basis, to watch the company grow and flourish, and to be allowed the type of opportunity this trip was. Thanks Intelysis, you have one thankful and happy photographer!
