Motivational speaker encourages attendees to be unstoppable and thrive
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 8 // PRNewswire // -- PMD Furniture Direct, Inc. (PMD) recently completed its National Sales Conference in Glendale, Ariz., January 10 - 14. Held at the Renaissance Glendale, this was the first national sales conference hosted to help the company's new roster of franchisees gear up for 2010. PMD executives and franchisees came together as a team to share and hear of the company's plans and strategies, and to give franchisees the opportunity to preview new lines of furniture to help jump-start the new year via an exclusive Furniture Market.
The conference, themed "We are go for launch!", highlighted the new offerings. PMD Founder, CEO and President Jeff Hosking and the PMD executive team provided updates on the company's private label furniture brand, Royal Heritage Home Furnishings, and various internet-related strategies that are in the process of being rolled out to the franchisees. The agenda included sessions focused on generating higher profits, building stronger organizations and improving presentation and selling skills.
The conference also featured a presentation by Joel Weldon, a highly sought after motivational speaker and sales training consultant. Weldon enthusiastically reminded conference-goers to be adaptable to change, harness the power of teamwork, and have the courage to be unstoppable to achieve their goals.
"It's an exciting time to be a part of PMD," said Hosking. "Despite a questionable economy, we are adding new franchisees and have experienced steady sales at retail. We remain positioned to continue offering our retail customers affordable options to help them furnish their homes while providing the support and tools needed by our franchisees to operate successful businesses."
The company held its annual awards ceremony during the conference, in which Hosking announced the 2009 Sales Champions, 2010 President's Club inductees and winners as well as the PMD All-American winners. These programs recognize top performing PMD franchise owners with exciting prizes including an all-expense paid trip to a worldwide destination, this year to be held at the Four Seasons Resort in Punta Mita, Mexico.
PMD is a leader in the furniture industry, and with their new franchise model, they can offer a nearly recession-proof business platform to PMD franchisees because of their low-overhead, profitable approach to retail. Their system-wide sales are projected to reach $150 million in 2015, making PMD one of the fastest growing retail franchises in the country.
