  • Team USA Is No Ordinary Team

    Working for The International Dermal Institute is always a pleasure, but even more so when the United States Education Meeting comes around. It is the highlight of the year and this year was no exception! Our corporate office was filled with excitement and anticipation as we welcomed our tribal members from across the country to a few inspirational days of bonding and learning.

    We had 100 attendees including Instructors, Front Desk Registrars, Managers, Operations Team, Professional Skin Therapists from our Flagship Stores and Field Trainers attended the conference. Our theme was ‘This Is No Ordinary Meeting.  You Are No Ordinary Team’ with a focus on – Leadership, Problem Solving and Team Building. The biggest impact for us this week was all about working together and understanding our true story as a tribe. At the end of the day, it’s a balance of Sales and Education, that work together hand in hand to help build the company, and help each of our accounts achieve their goals and create their own success stories.

    We had 17 presentations as well as five breakout sessions that covered where we are at with Education, where we’re going and how we’re going to get there. The magnitude of information was so amazing that each presentation left us with copious amounts of notes and mindful measures to take back and apply immediately within our daily lives at home and work. There were presentations to remind us of who we are as a company – such as ‘What’s in your DNA?’ with the unforgettable stories of what makes us so different and stand out from the rest. And of course, who better to share that with us than our very own Dr. Diana Howard, VP of Research and Development and Global Education. We enjoyed educational presentations on the new innovative products Dermalogica is bringing to market and the great new classes we have to support launches, products and the future of our industry – the medical arena.

    It was a case of “Who Done It?” as we enjoyed a night out on the town aboard the beautiful and mysterious ship, the historic Queen Mary. Fun was had by all during our murder mystery dinner and it was great to see friends and colleagues come together, work as a team and sleuth out the clues to solve the case!

    Our final day was filled with inspiration and words of wisdom from our Founder and Chief Visionary, Jane Wurwand. Jane presented a segment on true success and how it goes beyond money and power. We gained great tips on how we need to disconnect from our technology devices (literally!) and introduce silence in our lives – it is imperative for our creative mind and our own sanity! She ended with a quote that truly left each of us motivated to complete the second half of the year achieving goals and exceeding expectations.

    “Every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling ‘this is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!’ and each day, it’s up to us to yank our hand back, put it on our hearts and say, ‘No. This is what’s important’” – Iain Thomas.  Thank you Jane!

    It all ended too quickly, but we look forward to another year, when we can all be together again and share stories and moments of how we helped more than 60,000 students achieve success and build their business. Together, as a team, we are all here to support each other and change the industry one student at a time.
