The direct selling landscape changes weekly, even daily. But how do busy executives navigate these changes and understand what’s happening?
Through the Best Practices Alliance, members can expect access to ongoing analysis and training about these changes. Because time is of huge concern to company leaders, we know that executives, directors, and managers appreciate the flexibility to learn from their offices and the option to attend in-person events.
Membership in the Best Practices Alliance comes with flexibility.
Both leaders and their teams will have access to timely information and training at any time through the Alliance online platform with the option to connect and meet in person as time allows. In addition, as each onsite meeting will offer a different theme/objective, companies can rotate through different members of their team for each event.
An event focused on finance potentially won’t be of interest to the marketing department, but will offer a great opportunity for CFOs, VPs, and finance directors to connect and interact. Without the pressure of sending the same people to every event, companies have the option to pick and choose who they send without fear that the same individuals will always be out of the office.
Plus, all onsite events will be recorded and made available through the Alliance site. So even if a company can’t send attendees to a particular event, they can still learn what was shared at the event. This option will be valuable for companies who may have their own event scheduled as the same time. Recordings of onsite Alliance meetings will only be available to members, and only members will have access to the courses/content.
Membership in the Best Practices Alliance comes with access.
In addition to the training and meetings, company leaders will have the opportunity to connect with their peers in a safe environment through councils. Future offerings include legal, CEOs/company presidents, technology, sales teams, distributor service.
These councils can serve as both networking groups and as a peer-feedback groups. Being a direct selling CEO isn’t like being the CEO of a traditional B2C or B2B company. Having the opportunity to discuss industry-specific issues with a group of other leaders provides a sizeable value. Also, by opting in to the Alliance, companies can save their training dollars for company-specific programs that can be hosted privately on the Alliance platform.
