“Salute to the Stars” Dinner Honors Top Performers at MicroCare with Annual Global Sales Awards

May 24, 2018

The highlight of the entire Global Sales Meeting was the much-anticipated “Salute to the Stars” Sales Awards banquet.  But before we all got to dinner, we had one more long day, with more classroom time, more discussions, and complex decisions carefully crafted. The day was split between more break-out groups and discussion sessions. While the team was getting tired — and still supporting customers by phone and email!  — the training and thinking was getting done.

Dave Ferguson, MicroCare Product Manager for Precision Cleaning, explains the sales plans for 2018-19 to the senior executives at MicroCare.

A sales team is like an army, and as Napoleon said, "it runs on it's stomach." At the MicroCare global sales meeting, keeping everybody fed is a top priority. Here Liam Taylor, Jerald Chan and Joe Ng enjoy the lunch break.

The dinner was held at the historic Lucky Lou’s restaurant, in the Deming-Standish House in Old Wethersfield,  Connecticut. Everyone involved in customer service was invited, and everything was perfect — even the weather. Pre-dinner cocktails were on the patio outside the restaurant, and the award dinner was upstairs in the Old Dining Room. Chris Jones chatted with the entire team about the accomplishments of the year, and Tom Tattersall, MicroCare Chief Operating Officer, made the awards presentations along with Heather Gombos, Vice President Business Operations.

The weather was unexpectedly beautiful for the pre-party, so it became a war of the sunglasses with Colleen Pace, Guylaine Guerette and Stephanie Wood battling for top honors!
