November 4 – 6, 2011 — Nearly 200 attendees plus Vemma’s super Elite leaders flew in from all over North America for the premier Go for the Gold Weekend Summit, a leadership and business-building weekend retreat held in sunny Phoenix, Arizona. Hosted by BK, Karen and Lauren Boreyko and the Home Office team, the event recognized attendees for meeting the Go for Gold requirements during the first qualification period. Attendees enjoyed complimentary transportation, airfare, meals, accommodations, and extensive on-site advanced leadership training led by two top Vemma leaders — Royal Ambassadors Ruth Elliott and Tom Alkazin. Training was all specifically designed to get them to the next level!
The festivities began Friday night, as the Go for the Gold winners were greeted at the airport and hotel by friendly Vemma staff and then brought to Home Office for a very special Welcome Reception. As they approached Home Office, a mob of employees and photographers cheered their success and blinded them with flashbulbs. The party started flowing with drinks and lavish food, more photos and fun networking with the staff and fellow trip winners. On Saturday, the Go for the Gold earners’ day started early with a great breakfast, then they were off to hear from Vemma’s two multi-million dollar earners Tom Alkazin and Ruth Elliott. One of the highlights many commented on was having access and coaching from these two industry legends as they shared their best advanced leadership practices and exciting business insight to help catapult everyone’s business success to Platinum Club and beyond! Attendees received exclusive details and sampled the new Vemma Bod-e line, learned about the newest Vemma incentive programs, heard highlights of the upcoming 2012 Convention and discovered how to use Vemma marketing tools to grow their business. Later that evening, Go for the Gold attendees enjoyed a memorable Recognition Dinner. What amazed most of the audience was the number of leaders that had already taken their businesses flying past Gold to Diamond, Platinum, Star Platinum and even Executive! But the perks didn’t stop there! Before departing on Sunday, attendees enjoyed a personal tour of the Vemma manufacturing plant and heard first-hand the massive $5.5 million expansion plans underway to support the Verve and Bod-e brands.
The Take Aways
Vemma designed the fun-filled, all-expense paid weekend to celebrate the impressive achievements of these fabulous Go for the Gold winners.

One of the most commented things overheard was how impressed the attendees were with the presence of Vemma Elite leaders like Matt Morrow, JD Phillips, Brad Alkazin, Linda Proctor, Rich and Karen Rowe, DP Gates, Annie Black, and Ian Nicholson. With these Vemma stars sharing their insights and mingling through the event, new Golds commented, “This must be what it feels like to be on an Ambassador Club trip!” Home Office can’t wait to see the impressive milestones these Brand Partners will produce next!
