Back to Basics: A New Staple in Europe Event Lineup



Synergy management and Team Members excelled in putting on the first Back to Basics event in Synergy history May 5–7. Nearly 500 Team Members attended the event at the Palazzo del Turismo in Jesolo—a beautiful seaside city neighboring Venice, Italy—from countries throughout Europe, and a number of U.S. visitors were in attendance.

Back to Basics provided detailed information about Synergy products and business building systems. This year’s event featured influential leader and network marketing guru Fernando Gatti who delved into his proven business system. Special guests included Synergy President Dan Norman, Vice President Carmelo D’Anzi, and Presidential Executives Mads Østvang and Paul Blad.

Back to Basics was nothing short of edifying and insightful. Synergy WorldWide looks forward to making Back to Basics an annually sought-after event!

In addition to receiving valuable product training from Italy’s leaders, two new gel products were launched—VitaZone and PRO-MUN. VitaZone provides the full daily recommended amounts of 14 essential vitamins while PRO-MUN features zinc and highly nutritious plant extracts. These products and others flew off the shelves at the Back to Basics Synergy Store.

The weekend kicked off Friday evening with a qualification-only VIP dinner event. These qualifiers gathered at the Golf Club Jesolo’s Ristorante DolceVita. Each qualifier either achieved the Team Manger title for the first time or maintained the Team Manager title or higher for one month during the qualification period. The dinner featured wonderful seafood and Italian delights. A birthday cake was served as dessert, as the VIPs wished a “happy birthday” to Emerald Executive Kati Gammals, General Manager Nader Poordeljoo, and Mads Østvang.

Saturday was a complete day of information-packed event sessions. General Manager Adele Pastore and Vice President Carmelo D’Anzi welcomed Team Members to Italy, their native country. A wonderful lineup of doctors and experts presented facts along with personal experiences, highlighting the Purify Kit, the gels, and all other Synergy products. Team Members who achieved new pin titles were recognized and a few Synergy leader panels were hosted to discuss important business topics.

Serious business builders listened intently Sunday morning as Nando Gatti gave an in-depth look at the proper way to build a team—from finding potential Team Members to working with a customer base. Attendees walked away from that session feeling more confident in their ability to be a business builder.

Mads Østvang reminded the audience about the importance of taking action, telling them that everything they’ve learned at the event only matters when it is applied. The Experience Synergy event qualifiers were recognized, and Dan Norman shared news of new products coming to Europe and details behind the next big event: the 2017 Summit in Barcelona.
