Fascinating port cities, an ancient theatre and an impressive safari with off-road vehicles to Mount Etna

Suc­cess with ENERGETIX always pays div­i­dends in sev­er­al ways. Those, for exam­ple, who are par­tic­u­lar­ly suc­cess­ful in the train­ing-trip com­pe­ti­tion are reward­ed with exclu­sive incen­tive trips!

Sun, sea and sand: qual­i­fiers for the 2nd cat­e­go­ry of ENERGETIX’s train­ing-trip com­pe­ti­tion were sent off on a trip to Sici­ly from 16 to 20 May 2017!

BE A STAR – that was the mot­to for the just under 40-strong group of inter­na­tion­al par­tic­i­pants that had won the oppor­tu­ni­ty to expe­ri­ence the var­ied cul­tur­al and nat­ur­al sights on this pop­u­lar Mediter­ranean island. The group – this time com­posed of inde­pen­dent busi­ness part­ners from Ger­many, France, Aus­tria, Switzer­land and Turkey – was able to enjoy five days togeth­er in Mediter­ranean sur­round­ings!

The par­tic­i­pants were based in the Vil­la Itria Grand Hotel in the port of Cata­nia from where they were able to take off on their plea­sure and adven­ture trips to the east­ern part of the island.

UNESCO World Her­itage: besides the explo­ration of the late baroque old town of Cata­nia and a trip to the old town of Syra­cuse, there was also a tour of the old town of Taormi­na with its ancient the­atre – and its mag­nif­i­cent back­drop and the breath­tak­ing dis­tant view – on the itin­er­ary.

One spe­cial high­light was the prob­a­bly unfor­get­table safari in off-road vehi­cles in the area around Mount Etna (3323 metres), the largest and most active vol­cano in Europe, which was fol­lowed by lunch served at a Sicil­ian vine­yard that includ­ed such spe­cial­i­ties as bruschet­ta, olives, cheese and, of course, the region’s sun-kissed wines.

The busi­ness-part­ner awards, which are a per­ma­nent fix­ture on every com­pe­ti­tion trip, were staged at the Farewell Din­ner that was held at the Scia­relle coun­try house.

And, besides the var­i­ous cul­tur­al and culi­nary high­lights, the strength­en­ing of team spir­it and the exchang­ing of expe­ri­ences also nat­u­ral­ly played an impor­tant role so that the par­tic­i­pants returned home high­ly moti­vat­ed and ready to get back to busi­ness!

We’ve put togeth­er the most beau­ti­ful impres­sions from Sici­ly in an on-line pho­to album exclu­sive­ly for you.

Frogs aren’t afraid of the rain. ENERGETIX, Joey Kelly and the half marathon for a good cause

Once again, a ded­i­cat­ed team of ENERGETIX run­ners took up the chal­lenge of con­quer­ing the good 21 kilo­me­tres in 2017. And mega-moti­va­tor Joey Kel­ly trav­elled to Mainz to accom­pa­ny his charges across the fin­ish­ing line once again. But ‘high and dry’ wouldn’t be the right thing to say here because it rained on the said Sun­day and, although there were a few dry spells, every­one still got wet. The around 70 run­ners, how­ev­er, didn’t let that spoil their fun in any way!

More than 5,700 par­tic­i­pants com­plet­ed the half marathon and a good 70 of these were eas­i­ly iden­ti­fi­able as ENERGETIX run­ners by their blue-and-red shirts. They had trained hard and had trav­elled from all over Ger­many and Aus­tria to join in the fun and bat­tle through kilo­me­tre by kilo­me­tre for them­selves and their team.

And Joey did his utmost to moti­vate his ENERGETIX team to make sure that lit­er­al­ly every­one got home with a medal. And he suc­ceed­ed. Con­grat­u­la­tions! The exhaust­ed and delight­ed expres­sions on the faces on the ‘Frog run­ners’ as they crossed the fin­ish­ing line speak vol­umes!

Imme­di­ate­ly after the run, the like­able and mul­ti-tal­ent­ed Joey had to head straight for the ZDF TV chan­nel after­wards where host Andrea Kiewel, his broth­ers and sis­ters and a delight­ed audi­ence await­ed a per­for­mance by the Kel­ly Fam­i­ly!

The day before, run­ners had been giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to dis­cov­er every­thing about run­ning at the Marathon Fair in the Rhein­gold­halle. Also present: a stand orga­nized by ENERGETIX busi­ness part­ners who pre­sent­ed the new two-tone design of the pop­u­lar sportEX bracelets in front of the smart new sportEX trade-fair wall.

Great tra­di­tion: the ENERGETIX team con­sist­ing of inde­pen­dent ENERGETIX busi­ness part­ners, staff and friends of the com­pa­ny took up the sport­ing chal­lenge to run togeth­er for a good cause. Two euros per kilo­me­tre were again donat­ed to ENERGETIX’s char­i­ty part­ner in South Africa, the Hugo-Tem­pel­man Foun­da­tion.

We would also like to thank the orga­niz­ing team and the mas­sage team, which was so impor­tant to the run­ners, for their active sup­port and all the fans who cheered the run­ners on along the route!

We have put togeth­er an exclu­sive com­pi­la­tion of the most mov­ing impres­sions of the mega event in Mainz for you here.

The stars in Mainz – international STARCLUB meeting ahead of the Gutenberg Marathon

On Fri­day and Sat­ur­day, ENERGETIX’s most suc­cess­ful busi­ness part­ners came togeth­er for an inten­sive two days of train­ing just before the mega sports event on 7 May.

Those who are admit­ted to the renowned STARCLUB as inde­pen­dent busi­ness part­ners have pro­duced out­stand­ing per­for­mances and are rec­og­nized accord­ing­ly. ENERGETIX sends out invi­ta­tions to its stars sev­er­al times a year to receive exclu­sive first-hand news, to exchange expe­ri­ences with oth­ers and to relax togeth­er and enjoy an exclu­sive enter­tain­ment pro­gramme as well as to gath­er strength for the months ahead in atmos­pher­ic sur­round­ings.

The Novo­tel, sit­u­at­ed at the heart of the cap­i­tal city of the Rhineland-Palati­nate, con­sti­tut­ed the ide­al venue for this inter­na­tion­al event. The warm wel­come was fol­lowed by ENERGETIX’s man­age­ment – Roland Förster, Alexan­der Link and Jes­si­ca Schlick – pre­sent­ing cur­rent inno­va­tions and plans for the future of the suc­cess­ful net­work-mar­ket­ing com­pa­ny. A live­ly exchange that ben­e­fit­ed all sides round­ed off the after­noon before the mem­bers pro­ceed­ed to the evening event with the emo­tion­al cer­e­mo­ny to rec­og­nize new STARCLUB mem­bers and the par­ty after­wards at the Kupfer­berg Ter­race event loca­tion.

Sat­ur­day saw the hap­py stars take an enter­tain­ing and infor­ma­tive tour of Mainz. Besides a trip to the church of St. Stephan with its world-famous Cha­gall win­dows, the par­tic­i­pants also enjoyed a culi­nary excur­sion that focused on the top­ic of wine and choco­late. A real­ly suc­cess­ful con­clu­sion to an inten­sive and emo­tion­al two days‘ meet­ing of the STARCLUB!

Forty-two high­ly moti­vat­ed busi­ness part­ners from Bel­gium, Den­mark, Ger­many, the Nether­lands and Switzer­land returned home to their teams with fresh infor­ma­tion and renewed moti­va­tion. We wish every­one great suc­cess!

Many cheered on ENERGETIX’s half-marathon run­ners at the Guten­berg Marathon on Sun­day. With suc­cess: all mem­bers of the team reached the fin­ish­ing line after a good 21 kilo­me­tres. Con­grat­u­la­tions!

Here are the pho­tos for you!
