Collection Premiere 2019 – also with wellness catalogue for the first time

Roland Förster was greet­ed by thun­der­ous applause on the stage in Berlin on to which he had been invit­ed by Alexan­der Link and Jes­si­ca Schlick both of whom were pre­sent­ing. In his open­ing speech, the Sole Share­hold­er and CEO drew the atten­tion of his 1,000 guests to the company’s his­to­ry of 17 years that had been char­ac­ter­ized by con­tin­u­ous devel­op­ments. Devel­op­ments that had start­ed from the small­est of begin­nings and had grown into a pro­gres­sive­ly opti­mized col­lec­tion, high-qual­i­ty cat­a­logues and sig­nif­i­cant invest­ments in IT and logis­tics and also includ­ed the acqui­si­tion of the build­ing com­plex in Bin­gen. The lat­est mile­stone in the company’s progress is the exten­sive range of well­ness prod­ucts, which was pre­sent­ed in a sep­a­rate cat­a­logue for the first time in Berlin and which offers part­ners new poten­tial for sus­tain­ably boost­ing their busi­ness­es as well as their income and team-build­ing, which as Roland Förster par­tic­u­lar­ly point­ed out was of cen­tral sig­nif­i­cance.

In its pur­suit of these con­tin­u­ous devel­op­ments, ENERGETIX also attach­es great impor­tance to new­com­ers to the com­pa­ny. They were giv­en a spe­cial wel­come in Berlin. The num­ber of peo­ple who had joined since the last Col­lec­tion Pre­miere and who were invit­ed on to the stage was impres­sive.

 

Large groups, also among the teams, that had come dressed espe­cial­ly for the occa­sion of the Col­lec­tion Pre­miere in Berlin. The stage was hard­ly big enough to show off their cre­ativ­i­ty.

 

 

The company’s top busi­ness part­ners and mem­bers of the STARCLUB – the company’s high­est acco­lade – were also giv­en spe­cial recog­ni­tion and enjoyed loud applause.

 

 

The day’s high­light came this year in a dou­ble pack: well­ness prod­ucts and a new jew­ellery col­lec­tion. Both were pre­sent­ed dur­ing impres­sive stage shows. As were the two new cat­a­logues – in a new design and real­ized in the most sophis­ti­cat­ed of styles. The audi­ence enjoyed a breath­tak­ing per­for­mance dur­ing the show when Sergey Mishchurenko, who is famous for his tele­vi­sion appear­ances, impressed with a dar­ing rou­tine on his ‘Fly­ing Pole’.

He wasn’t the only celebri­ty of the day: the actor Ralf Bauer was also wel­comed as a guest and charm­ing­ly focused addi­tion­al atten­tion on the top­ic of well­ness. Joey Kel­ly and his son Luke, who is fol­low­ing in his father’s foot­steps, made an authen­tic con­tri­bu­tion to the moti­va­tion of the attend­ing busi­ness part­ners. They fur­ther issued a heart-felt invi­ta­tion to the par­tic­i­pants to join them at the next half marathon in Mainz where they’ll also be run­ning in ENERGETIX’s colours.

The busi­ness part­ners were also giv­en suf­fi­cient time to dive into the extreme­ly cre­ative­ly designed worlds of jew­ellery and well­ness. That was where par­tic­i­pants were able to take a close look at the new prod­ucts and get expert and knowl­edge­able advice about them. The enthu­si­asm was lit­er­al­ly tan­gi­ble.

 

 

 

Anoth­er first was the fact that suc­cess­ful busi­ness part­ners were giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to share their knowl­edge in the fields of jew­ellery, well­ness, team-build­ing and com­pe­ti­tions on stage in four inten­sive and enter­tain­ing pan­el dis­cus­sions. Com­pe­tence and expe­ri­ence in the ‘Tal­ent Are­na’ also pro­duced effi­cient exchanges between the man­age­ment, suc­cess­ful busi­ness part­ners and new­com­ers, who were able to ben­e­fit from the invalu­able knowl­edge that was pre­sent­ed there. Build­ing your own team was anoth­er of the cen­tral top­ics at the are­na as were tips and expe­ri­ences from many impres­sive careers.

With this prepa­ra­tion under their belts, the par­tic­i­pants eager­ly await­ed the pre­sen­ta­tion of the new com­pe­ti­tions, which were then revealed in an excit­ing launch: as is tra­di­tion, new­com­ers will be trav­el­ling to Bin­gen; win­ners of the sec­ond cat­e­go­ry will be get­ting to enjoy ‘Pure Nature’ in the Basque Coun­try while first-cat­e­go­ry qual­i­fiers may expect some­thing incred­i­ble: a trip to the Ama­zon – an expe­ri­ence that’s going to be an absolute one-off in the lives of those lucky enough to take part.

The day was round­ed off with the gala evening that was accom­pa­nied by a deli­cious meal and the pre­sen­ta­tion of the cheque to ENERGETIX’s char­i­ty part­ner Dr Hugo Tem­pel­man and that was then fol­lowed by a daz­zling par­ty with DJ and one of the best cov­er and par­ty bands in Ger­many.

 

The fol­low­ing Sun­day saw busi­ness part­ners decid­ing between the choice of tak­ing part in a socia­ble get-togeth­er.

An all-round suc­cess­ful Col­lec­tion Pre­miere! ENERGETIX’s most impor­tant event of the year has made a last­ing impres­sion: effec­tive exchanges of expe­ri­ences, top moti­va­tion and enthu­si­asm for two new ranges. The par­tic­i­pants are look­ing for­ward to the next Col­lec­tion Pre­miere in July 2020.

The ENERGETIX STARCLUB ahead of its Collection Premiere in 2019 – simply infectious!

From the start, the atmos­phere at the sum­mer STARCLUB meet­ing couldn’t have been bet­ter. The mem­bers of ENERGETIX’s supreme body met two days before the Col­lec­tion Pre­miere in the ESTREL Hotel’s sum­mer gar­den in Berlin for a lunch snack that was already await­ing the guests. It was a meet­ing that was actu­al­ly a warm gath­er­ing of friends in the most pleas­ant of Berlin set­tings that pre­sent­ed the per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty for small talk and inten­sive shar­ing of expe­ri­ences.

The lat­est first-hand news was pre­sent­ed dur­ing the exchange with the man­age­ment that fol­lowed. That was when Roland Förster, Alexan­der Link and Jes­si­ca Schlick talked about devel­op­ments and trends, includ­ing, for exam­ple, the grow­ing impor­tance that well­ness prod­ucts are enjoy­ing. The new Bal­an­ce­Plus Bot­tle met with great enthu­si­asm at its pre-launch intro­duc­tion to the STARCLUB mem­bers.

The STARCLUB’s new mem­bers were giv­en a par­tic­u­lar­ly warm wel­come. Men­tors and close­ly asso­ci­at­ed busi­ness part­ners found the appro­pri­ate and mov­ing words to praise the suc­cess­ful new­com­ers to the club – a demon­stra­tion of the close ties between peo­ple that are char­ac­ter­is­tic of the atmos­phere that exists at ENERGETIX and that cer­tain­ly also con­tribute to the suc­cess of every indi­vid­ual.

The STARCLUB mem­bers then got to spend the evening in the com­pa­ny of ENERGETIX’s man­age­ment at Schloss Britz. The atmos­phere was excel­lent. The sum­mer par­ty fol­lowed the hon­ours and a supe­ri­or evening meal.

 

 

Our STARS express how much they enjoy their suc­cess when they start to cel­e­brate. Although things weren’t real­ly any loud­er than usu­al, it was hot and so the win­dows were open. And then the police arrived. It must be said, how­ev­er, that the offi­cers deployed their de-esca­la­tion strat­e­gy per­fect­ly in the form of a Vien­nese waltz and that they were an unplanned but valu­able addi­tion to the evening. ENERGETIX’s atmos­phere is sim­ply infec­tious!

The announce­ment of the next three-day STARCLUB event on Mal­ta in April 2020 gave every­body a spe­cial moti­va­tion­al boost! An incen­tive for ded­i­cat­ed, con­tin­u­ous work for all busi­ness part­ners!

Pure motivation – the newcomer event in Bingen with Joey Kelly

A fresh wind blew through Bin­gen and our busi­ness premis­es last week. In appre­ci­a­tion of their out­stand­ing achieve­ments, we had invit­ed the win­ners of the New­com­er Com­pe­ti­tion to see our head­quar­ters.

But, once there, they were able to enjoy Joey Kel­ly, too, who is also a con­firmed fan of mag­net­ic jew­ellery and who enriched the day with a pre­sen­ta­tion about the pow­er of set­ting goals and moti­va­tion.

The first day was ded­i­cat­ed to a guid­ed tour of our premis­es with lots of infor­ma­tion from the Cus­tomer Sup­port, Mar­ket­ing and Ware­house depart­ments as well as an exchange with man­age­ment and employ­ees. But one of the high­lights was def­i­nite­ly the enter­tain­ing and instruc­tive ‘No Lim­its’ pre­sen­ta­tion by Joey Kel­ly.

No lim­its in your mind and pur­su­ing your goals with the utmost moti­va­tion – that’s what Joey illus­trat­ed using his life with the Kel­ly Fam­i­ly and as an extreme ath­lete as an exam­ple.

The evening was then ded­i­cat­ed entire­ly to recog­ni­tion because that’s when Roland Förster and Jes­si­ca Schlick pre­sent­ed the busi­ness part­ners with their cer­tifi­cates and awards against the back­drop of the Cen­tral Rhine Val­ley, which could have come straight from the movies. The buf­fet and BBQ on the ter­race of the Palais am Rhein was fol­lowed by a par­ty and danc­ing into the night in the com­pa­ny of a DJ.

The sec­ond day pro­vid­ed the oppor­tu­ni­ty to exchange expe­ri­ences with like-mind­ed peo­ple. A kind of speed dat­ing with hik­ing and wine tast­ing around the Nieder­wald Mon­u­ment pro­vid­ed the set­ting for enter­tain­ment, sight­see­ing and many answers to ques­tions about the busi­ness.

The event is best summed up with what the new­com­ers them­selves said: “two fan­tas­tic days”, “inter­est­ing exchange”, “beau­ti­ful land­scape”, “fun peo­ple” and “great atmos­phere”!

You will find more pho­tos of this great event on our Flickr chan­nel!

The training trip to South Africa

“Great, incredibly impressive! Thanks for this totally amazing trip. It was again something very special and very pleasant.”

The trip to South Africa allowed the first-cat­e­go­ry qual­i­fiers to get very close to the peo­ple and nature there. The promis­es that were made weren’t exag­ger­at­ed. It would hard­ly be pos­si­ble to expe­ri­ence this excit­ing coun­try as a vis­i­tor any more inten­sive­ly, emo­tion­al­ly or clos­er.

The trip start­ed in Elans­doorn, where Hugo Tem­pel­man, our long-stand­ing char­i­ty part­ner, works. The busi­ness part­ners were able to see for them­selves in the hos­pi­tal ward and research lab­o­ra­to­ry that ENERGETIX’s dona­tions over recent years are being put to extreme­ly good use.

A per­for­mance by a few mem­bers of the now world-famous choir showed how much qual­i­ty of life Hugo Tempelman’s work is pro­duc­ing in South Africa.

These first mov­ing impres­sions accom­pa­nied the group as the trav­ellers immersed them­selves direct­ly into the near­by nature where a beau­ti­ful lodge where they could relax was wait­ing for them.

The next day offered pure adven­ture when the par­tic­i­pants were tak­en on a safari to expe­ri­ence the Big Five with excit­ing and even dra­mat­ic aspects. The pic­tures speak for them­selves. The evening end­ed with a bush din­ner against the fan­tas­tic back­drop of dusk.

The next day’s pro­gramme of con­trasts saw the group take a short flight to the pul­sat­ing metrop­o­lis of Cape Town. 

The impres­sion that this ‘pearl at the south­ern tip of Africa’ offered was very pro­found with fan­tas­tic beach­es on the shores of two oceans, scenic diver­si­ty and a vibrant mul­ti­cul­tur­al soci­ety. The renowned ‘Gold Restau­rant’ took the guests on a culi­nary jour­ney across the entire con­ti­nent in the evening.

Next con­trast: Cape Town’s town­ship. The guide let us take a look behind the scenes. One of the high­lights of the jour­ney was a trip to a gen­uine med­i­cine man and to the guide’s moth­er, who lov­ing­ly pre­pared an African lunch for the group. It couldn’t have been more authen­tic!

The vis­tas from Table Moun­tain are, of course, always a must-see on any trip to Cape Town. The view at sun­set was mag­nif­i­cent.

And only ENERGETIX busi­ness part­ners could have expe­ri­enced the con­sump­tion of night cof­fee this way: the evening meal was served at the home of jazz musi­cians who pre­sent­ed a sam­ple of their skills with music that has con­quered the entire world.

The Cape of Good Hope’s pop­u­lar mas­cots, the charm­ing pen­guins, were one of the final last­ing impres­sions of a ‘stun­ning’ jour­ney before the first-cat­e­go­ry qual­i­fiers were appro­pri­ate­ly rec­og­nized for their out­stand­ing per­for­mances dur­ing ‘Din­ner at the Stack’.

An incred­i­ble trip but it can already be revealed that the new competition’s des­ti­na­tion for first-cat­e­go­ry qual­i­fiers that is going to be pre­sent­ed in Berlin at the end of August is eas­i­ly going to match these stan­dards for excite­ment and adven­ture.

We’ll be see­ing you in Berlin!

STARCLUB event with a special twist

Great spir­its and lots of fun while act­ing – that’s how the atmos­phere dur­ing the STARCLUB meet­ing that took place in Bin­gen on 3 and 4 May could be described. The venue – which was turned into a pro­fes­sion­al­ly super­vised film loca­tion – was the NH Hotel on the banks of the Riv­er Rhine.

The pro­tag­o­nists were the ENERGETIX STARS, who enthu­si­as­ti­cal­ly and total­ly immersed them­selves into the com­plex mate­r­i­al: great per­for­mances were pre­sent­ed in regard to the sto­ry­board, cast­ing, make-up and even direct­ing. As well as, of course, in the lead­ing and sup­port­ing roles.

 

The cin­e­mat­ic enthu­si­asm of our STARS dur­ing the shoot is reflect­ed in the three results, which had their pre­mieres after the evening menu at Burg Klopp. Roland Förster’s trib­ute to the STARCLUB mem­bers was com­ple­ment­ed this time with Oscars for all the par­tic­i­pants and three Spe­cial Awards for Out­stand­ing Achieve­ments.

The great atmos­phere with the 54 STARS who had trav­elled from the Nether­lands, Den­mark, France, Switzer­land and Ger­many tran­si­tioned seam­less­ly into a live­ly film-gala par­ty.

The Sat­ur­day after was marked by an infor­ma­tive meet­ing on ENERGETIX’s premis­es at which the most impor­tant news was shared first hand in advance with the STARCLUB mem­bers.

The ses­sion allowed ques­tions and sug­ges­tions to be explored in direct exchanges with the man­age­ment. The pos­i­tive feed­back about the sub­jects dis­cussed con­sti­tut­ed a great end to a very suc­cess­ful STARCLUB event.

Marrakesh – journey to another time, to another world

That you can end up in a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent and fas­ci­nat­ing world after what feels like a short-haul flight – that’s what the 22 par­tic­i­pants of ENERGETIX’s train­ing trip to Mar­rakesh expe­ri­enced. The name alone con­jures up excit­ing images of vibrant and ori­en­tal diver­si­ty that are then far sur­passed by what can actu­al­ly be expe­ri­enced there.

The first day alone pre­sent­ed the full pack­age: div­ing into the mag­i­cal atmos­phere of the Med­i­na mar­ket place with jug­glers, snake charm­ers and musi­cians along with an incred­i­ble selec­tion of goods being hawked by hun­dreds of traders. All this fills the air with a unique sound, accom­pa­nied by the fan­tas­tic smell of ori­en­tal food – a feast for the sens­es.

A some­what dif­fer­ent ral­ly was kicked off in the mid­dle of this unique atmos­phere with the aim of help­ing the trav­ellers dis­cov­er the his­to­ry and cul­ture of this mag­i­cal place. Appro­pri­ate­ly, the night was spent at the Riad Dar Jus­to, a state­ly vil­la at the heart of Mar­rakesh.

 

The fol­low­ing day was devot­ed to the aspect of valu­able details that this city, which has been able to keep its tra­di­tions alive, presents. ENERGETIX’s busi­ness part­ners were par­tic­u­lar­ly tak­en with the many small and open stu­dios where tan­ners, black­smiths and wood­work­ers – who are more artists than arti­sans – could be observed at their work. Anoth­er world, anoth­er time – still full of life today. A ‘tuk-tuk’ whisked the vis­i­tors down nar­row alleys to a styl­ish restau­rant in the evening.

The third day was ded­i­cat­ed to a trip to the Atlas moun­tains. This was where the par­tic­i­pants dis­cov­ered how com­plex the pro­duc­tion of Morocco’s pre­cious argan oil is on a trip to a coop­er­a­tive where it is made.

A Berber fam­i­ly pre­sent­ed the secrets of mak­ing tea in the Agafag desert  – a true cer­e­mo­ny. A ride on the camel was, of course, a must on a lit­tle excur­sion into the desert.

 

 

The evening meal, which was served in a Berber tent, was a very spe­cial expe­ri­ence as it pre­sent­ed the unique set­ting to cel­e­brate the win­ners of the Mar­rakesh ral­ly as well as the birth­day of Cécile Car­bonel, the busi­ness part­ner from France.

The high­light of the fourth day was the trip to the Yves Saint Lau­rent Muse­um and the Majorelle Gar­den that revealed that the fash­ion design­er did not only excel with won­der­ful cre­ations at his cho­sen pro­fes­sion.

This excur­sion into the Ara­bi­an world was brought to a close with an evening meal at the mod­ern Jad Mahal Restau­rant, where Andreas Förster, stand­ing in for his father, award­ed the cer­tifi­cates to the par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pe­ti­tion qual­i­fiers. He empha­sized how valu­able the ENERGETIX train­ing trips are, also from the point of view of per­son­al exchanges and learn­ing from each oth­er.

The unfor­get­table impres­sions of this train­ing trip to Mar­rakesh demon­strate once again that ENERGETIX’s ses­sions are great oppor­tu­ni­ties for busi­ness part­ners to moti­vate both them­selves and their entire teams.

French culture and international exchange – the STARCLUB event in Colmar

Feb­ru­ary 2019: 60 top busi­ness part­ners from Den­mark, Ger­many, Aus­tria and Switzer­land met in Col­mar. The charm­ing small town in the French Alsace rep­re­sent­ed the ide­al loca­tion for the first STARCLUB event of 2019.

The day was ini­tial­ly kicked off with the man­age­ment pro­vid­ing direct infor­ma­tion to the stars about new devel­op­ments and projects at the com­pa­ny. This ses­sion already made the ben­e­fits of mem­ber­ship in the STARCLUB appar­ent as it gave the busi­ness part­ners the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­tribute and offer their feed­back direct­ly.

The new STARCLUB mem­bers were imme­di­ate­ly inte­grat­ed into the group of stars with ques­tions, awards and gift pre­sen­ta­tions.

The sec­ond part of the day was ded­i­cat­ed to the essence of the busi­ness, which is team-build­ing. An extreme­ly live­ly and con­struc­tive exchange took place dur­ing this ses­sion. Every­one ben­e­fit­ed here from the mix of expe­ri­enced and new busi­ness part­ners. It was once again con­firmed that ENERGETIX offers both a par­tic­u­lar­ly attrac­tive com­pen­sa­tion plan and high-qual­i­ty prod­ucts – which is almost unique in the indus­try. Every­one is giv­en the space to devel­op and become suc­cess­ful in the busi­ness with­out pres­sure and oblig­a­tion.

This part of the day was fol­lowed by a guid­ed tour of Colmar’s cen­tre, which, with build­ings from six cen­turies, is extra­or­di­nar­i­ly well-pre­served. The din­ner was fol­lowed by a cel­e­bra­tion of all STARCLUB mem­bers for their mag­nif­i­cent achieve­ments. A splen­did evening, which end­ed with great con­ver­sa­tions, danc­ing and music.

The next day was reserved for a culi­nary work­shop at the Château de Kintzheim, where groups were formed to bake a spe­cial­i­ty that’s typ­i­cal of the region: mac­a­roons! As always with our busi­ness part­ners, fun and enter­tain­ment were not neglect­ed!

Over­all impres­sion: bright sun­shine, busi­ness part­ners in excel­lent spir­its and a valu­able exchange of expe­ri­ences!

‘Let’s talk about EX!’ — the Kick-Off Event 2019 in the Netherlands

The mot­to at the meet­ings to kick off the year in Ger­many, France and the Nether­lands shows where the focus will lie over the com­ing months: it will be on telling more peo­ple about ENERGETIX, inspir­ing them and offer­ing them the oppor­tu­ni­ty of a job that’s fun and that will help them make their wish­es and dreams come true.
Sole Share­hold­er and CEO Roland Förster talked about the mot­to that sets out the direc­tion for the com­ing months in his speech that opened the meet­ing in Tiel in the Nether­lands. ENERGETIX doesn’t only offer beau­ti­ful jew­ellery and high-qual­i­ty well­ness arti­cles but also a unique job for every­one!

“Talk about:

 

Roland Förster wel­comed last year’s new­com­ers with a brief inter­view with each. Some of them had already achieved a rapid start and had con­se­quent­ly secured addi­tion­al rewards for them­selves.

The attend­ing mem­bers of the cur­rent STARCLUB were then hon­oured and were exclu­sive­ly pre­sent­ed with a pair of Mag­net­Slip­pers, the lat­est addi­tion to the well­ness range. Their anec­dotes about how they start­ed with ENERGETIX were emo­tion­al, espe­cial­ly among the busi­ness part­ners of the first hour.
There was also news about the inno­v­a­tive food sup­ple­ment QICUMA (for­mer­ly Inja). Besides a new name, which is an indi­ca­tion of one of the most impor­tant com­po­nents which is turmer­ic, mag­ne­sium has also been added and the taste changed. A joint tast­ing on loca­tion was, of course, a must and con­vinced every­one who tried the new prod­uct. The mar­ket­ing mate­ri­als, such as the QICUMA prod­uct video, have also been adapt­ed.


Anoth­er high­light was the new SPRING / SUMMER 2019 col­lec­tion, which Mar­greth Janssen pre­sent­ed in a pro­fes­sion­al busi­ness-part­ner-like man­ner. Her pre­sen­ta­tion was accom­pa­nied by a fash­ion and jew­ellery show for the first time. The breaks pro­vid­ed oppor­tu­ni­ties to view, touch and try on all the new prod­ucts, which imme­di­ate­ly found new fans!

The after­noon was ded­i­cat­ed to prac­ti­cal train­ing ses­sions for the par­tic­i­pants. Sjaak Janssen explained in an inspir­ing pre­sen­ta­tion how to be con­sis­tent­ly suc­cess­ful with ENERGETIX and have fun at the same time. The new ‘Talk & Win’ com­pe­ti­tion was then pre­sent­ed.

The busi­ness part­ners’ moti­va­tion was clear­ly notice­able. New acquain­tances, new knowl­edge and new fan­tas­tic prod­ucts as well as a reli­able and strong com­pa­ny in the back­ground – these are the foun­da­tions for busi­ness part­ners to enjoy a suc­cess­ful year – entire­ly in line with the mot­to: „Let’s talk about EX!“

Please click here to see more pho­tos of the event that our dear busi­ness part­ner Mar­greth Janssen has made avail­able on her Flickr chan­nel.

At this point, we’d like to thank Mar­greth and Sjaak Janssen again for orga­niz­ing the event and to all the busi­ness part­ners who helped on loca­tion!

Joey Kelly breaks world record with ENERGETIX

Joey Kel­ly is a mem­ber of the Kel­ly Fam­i­ly and sportEX brand ambas­sador and – as an extreme sports per­son­al­i­ty – he nev­er likes to miss out on a sport­ing chal­lenge. So it was only nat­ur­al that he also decid­ed to take part in the telethon host­ed by the RTL tele­vi­sion chan­nel in Ger­many, which is one of the biggest char­i­ty cam­paigns in Ger­man broad­cast­ing.

This year’s chal­lenge was the ‘24-hour Urban Run’. This meant run­ning for 24 hours on a 375-metre long obsta­cle course. But he wasn’t alone: a total of 20 com­pa­ny teams joined him at the start­ing line as part of the world record attempt with the aim of help­ing chil­dren in need in Ger­many and the rest of the world with their dona­tions. And because Joey Kel­ly and ENERGETIX belong togeth­er just as much as ENERGETIX and social com­mit­ment do, it was agreed that the Bin­gen-based net­work-mar­ket­ing com­pa­ny would join in the activ­i­ties again in 2018! Because social respon­si­bil­i­ty and team spir­it are two of ENERGETIX’s absolute pri­or­i­ties. Besides par­tic­i­pat­ing in the RTL telethon (this year for the fourth time run­ning!), ENERGETIX also fields a team every year to run for good caus­es in the Guten­berg Half Marathon in Mainz.

The start­ing gun was fired at 6.30 p.m. on 22 Novem­ber when RTL’s telethon and the 24-hour chal­lenge went live on air. The 25-strong ENERGETIX team joined Joey Kel­ly as well as Jes­si­ca Schlick and Alexan­der Link of the man­age­ment to face the dif­fi­cult chal­lenge.

Equipped with the inno­v­a­tive and styl­ish sportEX bracelets and an ENERGETIX cap, Joey com­plet­ed lap after lap for 24 hours with­out a break in the com­pa­ny of the oth­er teams able and was in this way able to break the world record for the »longest team relay dis­tance over an extreme obsta­cle course (24 hours, mixed)«!

Instead of the 2,000 kilo­me­tres on the obsta­cle course that was required for the ‘24-hour Urban Run’, a total of 3,435.8 kilo­me­tres was cov­ered in 24 hours. Com­pa­nies that donat­ed 24,000 euros were able to secure their par­tic­i­pa­tion in advance – which in itself had raised almost half a mil­lion euros before the chal­lenge even start­ed! View­ers and celebri­ties were in this way able to raise a total of 8,604,481.00 euros through their many dif­fer­ent activ­i­ties dur­ing the 23rd RTL telethon with Wol­fram Kons for chil­dren in need in Ger­many and across the world. ENERGETIX was able to con­tribute 70,000 euros to this grand total.

ENERGETIX in the city of ‘White Nights’: St. Petersburg

The par­tic­i­pants qual­i­fy­ing for the first cat­e­go­ry in ENERGETIX’s Time for Suc­cess com­pe­ti­tion set off for a four-day train­ing trip to St. Peters­burg in Octo­ber. The city with its his­toric old town has been des­ig­nat­ed a UNESCO World Her­itage Site.

Frank­furt on 23 Octo­ber 2018 was the start­ing point for the trip to St. Peters­burg – the sec­ond largest city in Rus­sia – which is also known as the city of the ‘White Nights’. That’s because the sun nev­er sets entire­ly dur­ing the peri­od between the end of May and the mid­dle of July so that it stays bright or dusky even at night. A nice evening meal accom­pa­nied by great expec­ta­tions for the next few days brought the par­tic­i­pants’ first evening to a pleas­ant con­clu­sion.

Kalei­do­scope of St. Peters­burg

ENERGETIX’s busi­ness part­ners start­ed the next day with a guid­ed tour of the city, which actu­al­ly began with a trip to a vod­ka muse­um. That’s where – besides view­ing the museum’s exhibits – the par­tic­i­pants were also giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to enjoy a vod­ka tast­ing. The tour then con­tin­ued with a trip to one of the old­est cafés in the city where the trav­ellers were able to try pysh­ki – which are a type of Russ­ian dough­nut that are usu­al­ly enjoyed with a cup of cof­fee or tea.

The after­noon saw the qual­i­fiers vis­it­ing the famous Mari­in­sky Theatre’s bal­let school where they were first able to watch the chil­dren warm­ing up and then enjoy a 45-minute pre­sen­ta­tion. The the­atre is one of the most famous venues for opera and bal­let in the world and is also home to the old­est bal­let acad­e­my in Rus­sia.

The evening meal at the Repa restau­rant oppo­site the the­atre was fol­lowed by a per­for­mance of the bal­let of ‘The Foun­tain of Bakhchis­arai’ at the Mari­in­sky The­atre.

The next day kicked off with a tour of dis­cov­ery that was entire­ly ded­i­cat­ed to Art Nou­veau. Among oth­er sights, this trip took in the so-called ‘Singer House’, which was for­mer­ly the per­ma­nent rep­re­sen­ta­tion of The Singer Com­pa­ny, the sewing machine man­u­fac­tur­er from the USA. But every­one had to earn their own lunch: typ­i­cal Russ­ian food was pre­pared in a cook­ing stu­dio with lots of fun and in a great atmos­phere.

The par­tic­i­pants were tak­en to the most impres­sive build­ings in St. Peters­burg on the last day of the trip: the Cather­ine Palace with the Amber Room and the Her­mitage, one of the largest and most impor­tant art muse­ums in the world.

This won­der­ful and impres­sive trip was con­clud­ed at the Luce restau­rant in the evening, where the indi­vid­ual trav­ellers were rec­og­nized for their great achieve­ments and for qual­i­fy­ing for the first cat­e­go­ry in ENERGETIX’s Time for Suc­cess com­pe­ti­tion.

Besides the many cul­tur­al and culi­nary high­lights, the strength­en­ing of team spir­it and the exchange of ideas also played impor­tant roles on this trip thus enabling the par­tic­i­pants to return to their busi­ness­es full of ener­gy and high­ly moti­vat­ed!
