MONATions United 2016: WOW!


A simple word to summarize our incredible MONATions United 2016 event—our first annual convention.

For so many different reasons—the energy, the new products, the new tools, the palpable sense of a very bright future—MONATions United will be an event to remember for years to come. All who attended can say, “I was at the first-ever MONAT Global convention!”

As the new (as of last week) Director of Communications, I was thrilled to be a part of it. I couldn’t think of a better way to get started. The chance to speak with many Market Partners and sense your commitment and excitement for what we are doing was the perfect introduction to MONAT. It’s great to be a part of this company (family seems like a better word), and many thanks for your welcome!

Having been to numerous events like MONATions United in the last 16 years, I can say without hesitation that this event was second to none. This is what a vibrant, strong, inspired company looks and feels like.

So now what?

After an amazing event like MONATions United, it can seem anticlimactic to go back to the “daily routine.” Just take the excitement you felt from the event and share what you learned—and felt—with those on your team who couldn’t be there. Share the big news about MONAT Black, S3 by MONAT, Tousled, and the new tools.

These are all reasons to talk to people. And remember what Luis Urdaneta, our chairman, said in his opening remarks: “When you speak from your heart, when you speak with passion, people will listen.”

Let’s all be unstoppable as we move forward with MONAT!
