Trip to the Basque Country’s treasures

A trip that took place from 5 to 9 Sep­tem­ber to the Basque Coun­try on the north coast of Spain that was fan­tas­tic in every respect was expe­ri­enced by the 18 par­tic­i­pants, who were also joined by Alexan­der Link from ENERGETIX’s man­age­ment and – as a warm­ly wel­comed guest – Dorothé Förster, the founder’s wife.

Bil­bao kicked off a whole sequence of trav­el high­lights. The city is con­sid­ered an insid­er tip and has devel­oped into a true cul­tur­al hotspot with count­less sights. Among oth­er things, the group expe­ri­enced the Azku­na Zen­troa Cul­tur­al Cen­tre, a for­mer gra­nary with unique Art Nou­veau ele­ments and the – prob­a­bly unique – swim­ming pool with glass bot­tom.

Any fan of wine will be famil­iar with the name of Rio­ja. ENERGETIX’s trav­el group got to learn about ‘ver­ti­cal’ wine-mak­ing – a par­tic­u­lar­ly gen­tle and glob­al­ly unique pro­duc­tion method that pre­serves the grapes’ orig­i­nal flavour – at the Baig­or­ri vine­yard that is locat­ed in this region that is famed through­out the world for the wines that are grown there. There was, of course, also some tast­ing of the wines – accom­pa­nied by a real­ly fine sequence of dish­es!

San Sebas­t­ian will also remain a very fond mem­o­ry. That’s where many Art-Deco details trans­port vis­i­tors to a dif­fer­ent and unique age – some­thing to which the many top restau­rants also make a not incon­sid­er­able con­tri­bu­tion – world city lev­el. But per­haps it’s prefer­able to take a stroll through the pic­turesque cob­bled old town to enjoy some pin­tx­os, i.e. Basque tapas, or to take a dip in the very near­by sea with its dream beach­es? ENERGETIX’s busi­ness part­ners were spoilt for choice.

And then the Guggen­heim Muse­um! A mar­vel of lime­stone and tita­ni­um. Star archi­tect Frank O. Gehry has designed and real­ized a true tem­ple of cul­ture here. And, as an attrac­tion, it has made Bil­bao famous. Peo­ple talk about the ‘Guggen­heim effect’, which our group was priv­i­leged to expe­ri­ence: Frank O. Gehry’s work has giv­en Bil­bao a new face.

And the atmos­phere dur­ing the trip? Well, this is what one of the par­tic­i­pants had to say: “I laughed more on this trip than dur­ing the whole of the last few months!” There were also some very inten­sive exchanges between the par­tic­i­pants, par­tic­u­lar­ly about their expe­ri­ences with online com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Every­one learned from every­one, with IT Man­ag­er Alexan­der Link being par­tic­u­lar­ly sought-after as the per­son to talk to.

What remains is the mem­o­ry of a fan­tas­tic trip, an inten­sive group expe­ri­ence, effec­tive exchange of expe­ri­ences, per­son­al­i­ty build­ing through immer­sion in a neigh­bour­ing and rich cul­ture and thus the incen­tive for every­one of ENERGETIX’s busi­ness part­ners to give their all and qual­i­fy at the next com­pe­ti­tion. After all, the trip is just the ‘icing on the cake’, the ‘cher­ry’, so to speak; the short-term gain is in high­er sales, the long-term gain is in sus­tain­able income from a larg­er team.

STARCLUB enjoys the sun in Zandvoort

The weath­er couldn’t have been bet­ter and the atmos­phere dur­ing the whole event was sim­ply great. ENERGETIX invit­ed its best to the STARCLUB meet­ing that took place from 28 and 30 June in Zand­voort, the Nether­lands, dur­ing which the city and its sur­round­ings pre­sent­ed them­selves from their best sides. The 51 atten­dees were also sim­ply thrilled and delight­ed to final­ly be able to enjoy each other’s friend­ly com­pa­ny, includ­ing that of Roland Förster, Alexan­der Link and Jes­si­ca Schlick, in per­son.

The event includ­ed unusu­al activ­i­ties to help the par­tic­i­pants exchange expe­ri­ences and to deep­en per­son­al and friend­ly bonds. One of these activ­i­ties saw par­tic­i­pants tak­ing charge of boats with eight pas­sen­gers on board to tour the canals of neigh­bour­ing Haar­lem. Sim­ply the per­fect activ­i­ty for lit­tle adven­tures. Every­thing turned out well, of course, so every­one was able to ful­ly enjoy the evening bar­be­cue buf­fet at a beach club that was locat­ed right at the beach. Chill­ing out togeth­er while watch­ing the sun­set – sim­ply love­ly.

The sec­ond day revolved around a few sports activ­i­ties: the STARS were able to expe­ri­ence the Zand­voort Nature Park on e-bikes and enjoy a rein­vig­o­rat­ing pic­nic in the shade by a lake after which they were refreshed and ready for the next adven­ture: beach sail­ing on blokarts. The ris­ing wind ensured that the sandy beach soon became a gen­uine rac­ing track. The STARS real­ly enjoyed them­selves. A menu with sev­er­al cours­es and a glass of good wine in an award-win­ning restau­rant await­ed the mem­bers of the STARCLUB who then end­ed the evening with a great par­ty atmos­phere.

The fol­low­ing day was ded­i­cat­ed to a guid­ed tour of the city that also took the par­tic­i­pants to some of Haarlem’s less­er-known places and loca­tions. The day end­ed with a meal in a rus­tic restau­rant that con­sti­tut­ed the per­fect con­clu­sion to an expe­ri­ence that was high­ly moti­vat­ing for all those who took part as well as for all oth­er busi­ness part­ners: the effort required to join the STARCLUB is worth­while – for busi­ness and there­fore for income because the abil­i­ty to dis­cuss expe­ri­ences with both the best and the man­age­ment is worth its weight in gold as are the oppor­tu­ni­ties to devel­op per­son­al­ly through social and friend­ly get-togeth­ers – par­tic­u­lar­ly in these dif­fi­cult times.

Right up to speed: THE COLLECTION PREMIERE 2022

New collection, new catalogue with a new concept

On 18 June and in a great atmos­phere, ENERGETIX launched into its new 2022 / 2023 sea­son with an all-round inspir­ing Col­lec­tion Pre­miere. This year’s online event was streamed from Joey Kelly’s farm. Roland Förster wel­comed sev­er­al guests as well as many busi­ness part­ners and cus­tomers who were present at the venue with an opti­mistic and pos­i­tive look into the future.

But there actu­al­ly wasn’t just one Col­lec­tion Pre­miere – there were more than 30 – because many busi­ness part­ners had tak­en up the idea of indi­vid­u­al­ly orga­niz­ing their own per­son­al pub­lic screen­ings of the event.

As the live links to these indi­vid­ual events repeat­ed­ly demon­strat­ed: the atmos­phere there was just as fan­tas­tic – and char­ac­ter­ized by just as much enthu­si­asm about the new prod­ucts, which the busi­ness part­ners and cus­tomers there were able to expe­ri­ence direct­ly in the orga­niz­ers’ gar­dens and on their premis­es at the same time they were being pre­sent­ed on the Kel­ly farm.

This year’s cat­a­logue fea­tures sev­er­al inno­va­tions, as intro­duced by Alexan­der Link. It show­cas­es jew­ellery and well­ness arti­cles that will sim­ply make peo­ple want more. QR codes will then direct the prospec­tive cus­tomers to ENERGETIX’s online world as well as to more infor­ma­tion and reports about styling, well­ness and so on – areas where cus­tomer inter­est is already tan­gi­ble. It’s set­ting a new dynam­ic in motion that will take advan­tage of the new chan­nels of com­mu­ni­ca­tion while adapt­ing to cus­tomers’ chang­ing pur­chas­ing behav­iour.

Andrea Hön­ne­mann explained how the new com­mu­ni­ca­tion tools may be suc­cess­ful­ly employed to book par­ties and build teams. In dis­cus­sions with busi­ness part­ners who shared their recent suc­cess­es and with new­com­ers who were from the start able to suc­cess­ful­ly take advan­tage of the new com­mu­ni­ca­tion tools, the sales expert pre­sent­ed the new way of com­mu­ni­cat­ing with cus­tomers and prospects in a clear and com­pre­hen­si­ble fash­ion.

They count among the best in the com­pa­ny in sales, team-build­ing and over­all per­for­mance. That’s why they deserve very spe­cial recog­ni­tion: the mem­bers of the STARCLUB and the ONE YEAR STARCLUB. Jes­si­ca Schlick praised the out­stand­ing achieve­ments of the STARS, who are role mod­els for ENERGETIX’s entire fam­i­ly. 

ENERGETIX was again this year able to present a check for € 50,000.00 to Hugo and Lies­je Tem­pel­man and so con­tin­ue its sup­port for the Dutch couple’s extra­or­di­nary work in South Africa. The dona­tion came from the sale of ENERGETIX’s best-sell­er – Mag­net­Heart – and a top-up by sole share­hold­er and CEO Roland Förster. The funds will help run a cen­tre for the dis­abled and, as Hugo Tem­pel­man said in a very emo­tion­al speech, is a par­tic­u­lar­ly impor­tant help in the coun­try.

‘An Angel’ was the song per­formed togeth­er by Kathy and Joey Kel­ly and pre­sen­ter Men­na Muluge­ta and it also went straight to the heart. Men­na lived up to her fans’ expec­ta­tions through­out the entire event and was once again the per­fect host.

A very spe­cial thank-you goes to ENERGETIX’s brand ambas­sador Joey Kel­ly, who gen­er­ous­ly put his family’s farm at our dis­pos­al for the Col­lec­tion Pre­miere – a per­fect loca­tion, also for the con­clud­ing fan­tas­tic and almost roman­tic time spent around the camp fire, which guests enjoyed very much.

The mag­nif­i­cent atmos­phere at the Kel­ly farm and the great enthu­si­asm at the many indi­vid­ual events around the coun­try sent a clear sig­nal: ENERGETIX is ready for the future and is launch­ing into the new sea­son with lots of pos­i­tive ener­gy.

You’ll find more impres­sions of the event here.

We’ve pro­duced a short video of the event’s high­lights for you. Enjoy watch­ing!

Montenegro at its best

The train­ing trip to Mon­tene­gro, which took place from 18 to 21 May, was char­ac­ter­ized by a fan­tas­tic atmos­phere. A total of 24 trav­ellers were just hap­py to final­ly be able to enjoy an ENERGETIX trip, which qual­i­fi­ca­tion in the ‘BAMBE A MENTOR!’ com­pe­ti­tion had made pos­si­ble, again after the long inter­rup­tion.

The men­tors enjoyed excel­lent weath­er as they became acquaint­ed with a coun­try in the Balka­ns that, with its Mediter­ranean flair and charm, delight­ed even those already real­ly famil­iar with Adri­at­ic and Mediter­ranean. They also enjoyed the beau­ti­ful green out­doors with spec­tac­u­lar adven­ture worlds and cli­mate zones that range across the entire band­width to be expe­ri­enced in Europe – from Mediter­ranean to con­ti­nen­tal to alpine.

The pro­gramme was accord­ing­ly var­ied: hik­ing through the moun­tain land­scape at the Lov­cen Nation­al Park with its vil­lages steeped in his­to­ry, trav­el­ling by boat to the fjords in the Bay of Boka and vis­it­ing the Kon­avle Val­ley close to the bor­der where the three coun­tries of Mon­tene­gro, Bosnia, and Herze­gov­ina meet – an area famous for its culi­nary spe­cial­i­ties and excel­lent wines.

The expe­ri­ence was one thing – the oth­er was the long-missed oppor­tu­ni­ty to enjoy swap­ping notes in per­son with each oth­er and with Man­ag­ing Direc­tor Alexan­der Link. All the men­tors had qual­i­fied on the basis of their spe­cial achieve­ments and were able to share their expe­ri­ences with high­ly inter­est­ed lis­ten­ers. The train­ing trip was nat­u­ral­ly also the ide­al oppor­tu­ni­ty to prop­er­ly hon­our and per­son­al­ly rec­og­nize the par­tic­i­pants’ spe­cial achieve­ments.

An expand­ed team, top-class exchanges and a unique trav­el expe­ri­ence: BAM was worth­while and again showed all busi­ness part­ners what’s pos­si­ble with ENERGETIX.

NEW STARS event in Bingen – strong signal for all business partners

They’re on the best way towards a suc­cess­ful liveli­hood with mag­net­ic jew­ellery and well­ness prod­ucts: ENERGETIX’s NEW STARS. Fifty-five guests from Ger­many, France and Switzer­land attend­ed the NEW STARS event in Bin­gen on 28 and 29 April 2022.

The get-togeth­er was con­ceived as part of ENERGETIX’s com­pre­hen­sive moti­va­tion­al pro­gramme and was the first of its kind. Part­ners who are active in team-build­ing and are bring­ing new busi­ness part­ners into the fold were invit­ed to Bin­gen to expe­ri­ence direct­ly what, among oth­er things, the com­pa­ny is all about:

Man­age­ment up close

Roland Förster and Jes­si­ca Schlick wel­comed their guests at the NH Hotel on the banks of the Rhine. The two talked about how opti­misti­cal­ly they saw the future for those attend­ing. And they’re plan­ning to wel­come twice the num­ber of guests at the next NEW STARS get-togeth­er.

Effi­cient train­ing with moti­va­tion­al boost

The train­ing ses­sion with sales spe­cial­ist Andrea Hön­ne­mann, who out­lined her strat­e­gy for ‘grow­ing suc­cess­ful­ly with ENERGETIX’, was a step towards achiev­ing that goal. The day was more focused on team-build­ing because the prod­ucts vir­tu­al­ly sell them­selves.

Strength­en­ing the per­son­al­i­ty and rein­forc­ing the team as well as very con­crete tips for win­ning busi­ness part­ners that could be put into prac­tice right away – these were the top­ics that were explored from a vari­ety of per­spec­tives, where­by the expe­ri­ences that the NEW STARS had already gained were made an impor­tant point in the dia­logue.

The par­tic­i­pants were able to get to know each oth­er and ben­e­fit from the mutu­al exchange.

Celebri­ty con­tact with Joey Kel­ly – up close and ‘with­out bounds’

As always, full of ener­gy, like­able and inspir­ing! That’s how ENERGETIX busi­ness part­ners love THEIR Joey, who vis­i­bly felt at home in the com­pa­ny of the NEW STARS. It’s pos­si­ble to apply the prin­ci­ples of his ‘no lim­its’ approach, which allows him to keep on achiev­ing new goals as an extreme sports per­son­al­i­ty, to the busi­ness of ENERGETIX and is always invalu­able to part­ners. 

A spir­it that unites all

On their tour of the depart­ments at the company’s build­ing, the NEW STARS were also able to see a com­pa­ny that’s per­fect­ly set up to sup­port them. But, more impor­tant­ly, although most of the employ­ees are still cur­rent­ly work­ing from home, the vis­i­tors were able to meet some of the enthu­si­as­tic staff, who are ded­i­cat­ed to help­ing THEIR busi­ness part­ners and who show every day that every­one can always be approached and that they’re also there for every­one else. 

Opti­mism, moti­va­tion and a great atmos­phere char­ac­ter­ized the mood at this first NEW STARS event, which reached its social cli­max on Thurs­day evening with a sparkling-wine recep­tion, ster­ling food, awards and a great par­ty – a clear sig­nal that net­work mar­ket­ing is well on the road to recov­ery.

ENERGETIX is already look­ing for­ward to the next NEW STARS

WE WILL RISE!’ — ENERGETIX is entering its 20th year!

ENERGETIX’s pro­pri­etor Roland Förster drew atten­tion to a spe­cial anniver­sary at the event to kick off the year on 15 Jan­u­ary 2022: the company’s 20th anniver­sary! The mot­to of the year sets the agen­da and goal for how we intend to con­tin­ue: ‘WE WILL RISE!’

The long list of busi­ness part­ners who’ve been with ENERGETIX from the out­set – many of whom are still among the company’s top busi­ness part­ners – demon­strat­ed right at the start of the event that long and con­tin­u­ous careers are pos­si­ble with ENERGETIX.

Flex­i­bil­i­ty among busi­ness part­ners and com­pa­nies has made an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion, espe­cial­ly dur­ing the last two years, which have been marked by the chal­lenges that com­mu­ni­cat­ing online presents. “Dig­i­tal­iza­tion has picked up speed and will con­tin­ue,” Roland Förster said.

New­com­ers and new sales expert

The new online busi­ness tools are being uti­lized to their full effect by the suc­cess­ful new­com­ers who were intro­duced by Alexan­der Link. Sales expert Andrea Hön­ne­mann, who joined the com­pa­ny in August 2021, set out how espe­cial­ly impor­tant our mind­set is – and not only for new­com­ers: “Look for like-mind­ed peo­ple and live your enthu­si­asm! Things can only be good when you’re enthu­si­as­tic.” And her tip for online busi­ness: “Be curi­ous and dis­cov­er your poten­tial!”

The awards: high­ly emo­tion­al

The awards with which Jes­si­ca Schlick and Alexan­der Link pro­duced sur­prise and moments full of touch­ing emo­tions not only among the win­ners rep­re­sent­ed a clear indi­ca­tion that ENERGETIX has suc­cess­ful­ly adapt­ed to the changed cir­cum­stances. Such out­stand­ing accom­plish­ments as ‘10 years of ENERGETIX’, goals achieved, per­son­al sales vol­umes, team-build­ing and, of course, STARCLUB mem­ber­ship were rec­og­nized. Two busi­ness part­ners, Biba Marseglia and Wolf­gang Düsen­er, who are always open to new oppor­tu­ni­ties and who, among oth­er things, make par­tic­u­lar­ly exem­plary use of online com­mu­ni­ca­tions, were inter­viewed.

Cre­at­ing a busi­ness by build­ing teams

“He’s pas­sion­ate about what he does,” says coach Tobias Schloss­er of Wolf­gang Düsen­er. “His sub­con­scious com­pe­tence means that he can’t help him­self.” There are no secrets to achiev­ing suc­cess. “The key is deep iden­ti­fi­ca­tion with the sub­ject mat­ter – with the great prod­uct and the great busi­ness.” Where­by Schloss­er nat­u­ral­ly placed the empha­sis on the busi­ness. “Talk­ing about the prod­uct will win you cus­tomers; talk­ing about the system’s ben­e­fits will win you busi­ness part­ners and cre­ate the oppor­tu­ni­ty for you to build up your own busi­ness.”

With fire and pas­sion: Joey Kel­ly

Joey Kel­ly – brand ambas­sador for ENERGETIX – focused both on team spir­it and a men­tal atti­tude that builds on both ‘fire and pas­sion’. “You need a strong team to be suc­cess­ful,” said the artist and extreme sports per­son­al­i­ty, who’ll soon be head­ing off on his big tours again. But he also draws on his expe­ri­ence to remind us that every day is pre­cious. Even more so in the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. “Use the time now to build up strength!” And nev­er “lose the fire”, just like AC/DC, Joey’s favourite band, who, at the age of 70+, still rock the stage like they did in their 20s.

Heart and sun­shine: the new jew­ellery

Joey’s advice is right in line with the year’s mot­to, ‘WE WILL RISE!’. Two new small spring col­lec­tions with exclu­sive mag­net­ic jew­ellery con­sti­tute the foun­da­tion for ENERGETIX’s launch into its next chap­ter and its sec­ond decade. ‘Fol­low your Heart!’ and ‘Sun­shine on my Mind.’ There are two fly­ers for pre­sen­ta­tions to cus­tomers along with the cor­re­spond­ing online mate­r­i­al that’s avail­able for per­son­al­iza­tion. The mot­to-based com­pe­ti­tion defines var­i­ous­ly weight­ed tar­gets and is intend­ed to help kick-start and devel­op careers.

Great incen­tive: Men­na Muluge­ta

New jew­ellery, moti­va­tion, train­ing and awards were, of course, the high­lights of the event staged to kick off the year and that was broad­cast online from a stu­dio in Mainz. Men­na Muluge­ta, our singing host, con­tributed enor­mous­ly to the fan­tas­tic atmos­phere on the day. The for­mer ‘Voice of Ger­many’ con­tes­tant is today huge­ly pop­u­lar with a wide audi­ence and was avail­able for our event on Sat­ur­day. Her appear­ance full of pas­sion, pow­er, tem­pera­ment and enthu­si­asm should be an incen­tive to all of us. Thank you, Men­na!

Many busi­ness part­ners were able draw addi­tion­al moti­va­tion from the online col­lage train­ing with Ulrich Lang and Bis­er­ka Marseglia that took place the next day. The visu­al­ized goals make us opti­mistic that ‘WE WILL RISE!’

Back from the ‘pura vida’ – the pure, happy life.

What our trav­ellers to the Ama­zon have just expe­ri­enced from 22 Octo­ber to 2 Novem­ber can hard­ly be put into words: “It was inde­scrib­able, an entire­ly dif­fer­ent world, the veg­e­ta­tion, the peo­ple, the sounds! None of us could stop our­selves from fre­quent­ly welling up! By far the best trip I have ever been on!”

We could con­tin­ue with such superla­tives. The group already expe­ri­enced the first high­light on the sec­ond day close to where they had arrived, i.e. in Bogotá: a salt cathe­dral with a nave and two aisles, 180 metres deep in a for­mer salt mine – gigan­tic!

And then it was off to the great Ama­zon adven­ture with Hervé Neukomm. The Swiss nation­al who turned his back on con­ven­tions has been liv­ing the ‘pura vida’ in the jun­gle for many years. On his 240-hectare prop­er­ty, the Resort Habi­tat Sur, he and his wife work on dif­fer­ent envi­ron­men­tal and cul­tur­al projects that are aimed at pro­tect­ing the rain­for­est and its inhab­i­tants. The ide­al guide for ENERGETIX’s trip!

Joey Kel­ly was anoth­er per­son­al­i­ty who shaped this jour­ney. He’s a fan of ENERGETIX and had already made the trip to the Ama­zon region three years ago dur­ing which he was very touched by the unique nature, the peo­ple and Hervé’s desire to pro­tect the Ama­zon rain­for­est. Joey’s trip was the inspi­ra­tion for this prize for ENERGETIX’s com­pe­ti­tion and he was hap­py to seize the oppor­tu­ni­ty to return to this spe­cial place in the com­pa­ny of our busi­ness part­ners.

A jour­ney with­out roads. Dis­tances were cov­ered by speed­boat or canoe. Or on foot! There couldn’t be a more inten­sive way of expe­ri­enc­ing the jun­gle. The routes took the par­tic­i­pants across dif­fi­cult ter­rain, through mud and along paths with many obsta­cles. The trips were inter­rupt­ed with breaks for bathing in the mid­dle of the jun­gle – with spon­ta­neous mud packs.

Spon­ta­neous and unplanned was also the encounter with an old heal­er, who was sum­moned by the inhab­i­tants of a vil­lage as a minor injury had been suf­fered and whose per­son­al­i­ty and her sin­cere inter­ven­tion made a very pro­found impres­sion.

The qual­i­fiers were able to get up close to the ani­mals at a res­cue sta­tion for injured ani­mals. The encounter with an ana­con­da may well be described as sen­sa­tion­al, even if the staff did say it was ‘tame’.

The adven­tur­ers got some time to relax briefly with music and dance at a typ­i­cal vil­lage in the mid­dle of the jun­gle before return­ing to Bogotá via Leti­cia after a trip to an ani­mal reserve. This is where the group expe­ri­enced why this city of mil­lions is inter­na­tion­al­ly famous for its graf­fi­ti.

The clos­ing high­light was a vis­it to a fam­i­ly-run eco­log­i­cal­ly sus­tain­able cof­fee plan­ta­tion. These were def­i­nite­ly the first cof­fee beans to be har­vest­ed direct­ly by ENERGETIX busi­ness part­ners.

‘Pura vida’ — the qual­i­fiers for the ‘Pure Nature’ prize were able to gain a small but inten­sive impres­sion of this spe­cial lifestyle and it cer­tain­ly pro­vid­ed lots of food for thought in regard to their own lifestyles on their return home. A trip that once again empha­sized the spe­cial and exclu­sive nature of ENERGETIX’s com­pe­ti­tions and demon­strat­ed how much the com­pa­ny appre­ci­ates its busi­ness part­ners.

The STARCLUB meeting with a Mediterranean flair

A total of 39 STARCLUB mem­bers met with ENERGETIX’s man­age­ment on the beau­ti­ful Mediter­ranean island of Mal­ta from 1 to 3 Octo­ber. It was the first trip since the begin­ning of the pan­dem­ic for many of the par­tic­i­pants.

After arriv­ing on the Fri­day, the STARS were tak­en straight to Hotel-Resort Dol­men that’s locat­ed on the beach front. A bus then took the par­tic­i­pants for their evening meal to Val­let­ta, the island’s cap­i­tal. The par­tic­i­pants were giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to take a walk through the his­toric old town and explore its nar­row streets that were dec­o­rat­ed with fairy lights and filled with music and the aro­ma of Mal­tese cui­sine.

The next day was reserved for activ­i­ties, fun and team­work. So the par­tic­i­pants were tak­en by fer­ry to the island of Gozo where a small fleet of old off-road vehi­cles await­ed for a spe­cial island ral­ly. The trav­ellers were divid­ed into eight teams and giv­en a short brief­ing before they set off for their very own island adven­tures with indi­vid­ual sched­ules.

The goal was to find their way across the island by using the sched­ules and solv­ing ques­tions and tasks along the way. Dri­ving on the nar­row, some­times unpaved roads with the old cars was a chal­lenge in itself. So this team chal­lenge wasn’t lack­ing in adren­a­line and fun. A unique expe­ri­ence that none of the par­tic­i­pants will ever for­get so quick­ly.

Every­one was giv­en the chance to recov­er from the excit­ing day and spend some time on the beach or do a bit of shop­ping in the city in the late after­noon before it was time for the exclu­sive evening meal that was being served at Restau­rant Café del Mar. The win­ners of the ral­ly were cel­e­brat­ed in the mod­ern ambi­ence. The exquis­ite meal was com­ple­ment­ed with cake to cel­e­brate the birth­day of one of the par­tic­i­pants. In spite of the coro­na-relat­ed ban on danc­ing, it was a suc­cess­ful evening, which some of the trav­ellers found them­selves bring­ing to close at the beach bar.

The next morn­ing, the last one before depar­ture, pro­vid­ed the time and scope for an inten­sive exchange with the man­age­ment. In the bright sun­shine and with a buf­fet lunch to fol­low, every­one was giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to address impor­tant top­ics that would help shape new devel­op­ments at ENERGETIX.

The inter­na­tion­al STARCLUB meet­ing not only pro­vid­ed the set­ting for a great reunion that was char­ac­ter­ized by lots of fun, good food and long-await­ed per­son­al exchanges, it was also a total suc­cess.

The Collection Premiere 2021: more creative, more professional, more motivated

Even more cre­ative, even more pro­fes­sion­al, even more moti­vat­ed and even more sup­port for busi­ness part­ners to make more time for sales talks and team-build­ing – those are just a few words that describe ENERGETIX’s Col­lec­tion Pre­miere on Sat­ur­day, 19 June 2021.

CEO and Sole Share­hold­er Roland Förster wel­comed guests from 13 coun­tries live from the company’s head­quar­ters in Bin­gen – with assis­tance from the management’s Alexan­der Link and Jes­si­ca Schlick. Pre­sen­ter Markus Appel­mann was also in atten­dance. It was the sec­ond time that he accom­pa­nied the audi­ence through an inten­sive pro­gramme and his charm made the time sim­ply fly by.

Even more cre­ative: the new Jew­ellery Col­lec­tion for 2021/2022

Once again, the col­lec­tion sur­pass­es that of the pre­vi­ous year – as Biba Marseglia, who’s been one of ENERGETIX’s lead­ing fig­ures for years, said. The cur­rent trend towards gold has been afford­ed the sig­nif­i­cance it deserves with each item of jew­ellery being turned into a work of art. Fun, joie de vivre and ener­gy – that’s what the jew­ellery express­es, which is why it’s sim­ply bound to inspire cus­tomers, espe­cial­ly at this time of year. A time that’s also char­ac­ter­ized by the need for feel-good moments. Moments that ENERGETIX’s range of well­ness acces­sories – to which new prod­ucts have been added and which is now being pre­sent­ed along­side the jew­ellery in the cat­a­logue – is able to cre­ate. The new and larg­er-for­mat cat­a­logue with its cre­ative and sus­tain­able design makes you want the orig­i­nals.

Even more sup­port for busi­ness part­ners

Argu­ments that authen­ti­cal­ly and cred­i­bly sup­port sales – who bet­ter to deliv­er them than the jew­ellery design­ers at ENERGETIX? The cre­atives shared the tech­ni­cal back­ground to the pieces in casu­al one-to-ones with Markus dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion. And these impor­tant expla­na­tions have also been includ­ed in the cat­a­logue right next to the prod­ucts.

Even more pro­fes­sion­al: on-line com­mu­ni­ca­tion

It’s now pos­si­ble to access all the oth­er impor­tant prod­uct details on-line in a tar­get­ed and pre­cise man­ner. The top­ic is gen­er­al­ly becom­ing more and more impor­tant. Jes­si­ca Schlick intro­duced a new addi­tion­al tar­get group with the on-line con­sul­tant. The ‘Hap­py from home’ ver­sion will open up a new field of activ­i­ty not only for busi­ness part­ners who are accus­tomed to work­ing on-line while the new par­ty code and Par­tyShop that Alexan­der Link pre­sent­ed will deliv­er effec­tive sup­port for home and on-line pre­sen­ta­tions.

WOW: the artists of the day

The den­si­ty of celebri­ties, as Markus put it, grew in inten­si­ty as time pro­gressed. And it was indeed so: Joey Kel­ly and his chil­dren Luke and Lil­li with their ver­sion of the song ‘I nev­er want­ed to be grown up’ as a world first at ENERGETIX’s Col­lec­tion Pre­miere; Maite Kel­ly, also with a new hit, and – sen­sa­tion­al­ly – the inter­view that Jes­si­ca Schlick con­duct­ed with Lili-Paul Ron­cal­li, the 2020 win­ner of the Let’s Dance TV show. They all shared with busi­ness part­ners advice that they had gained from their own expe­ri­ences: per­se­vere, stay flex­i­ble, be cre­ative, be open to new things, plan the day and keep on moti­vat­ing your­self.

Char­i­ty: suc­cess and new projects

The fact that it’s pos­si­ble to achieve great suc­cess even when you find your­self in the most unfavourable of sit­u­a­tions was demon­strat­ed by the con­tri­bu­tion from ENERGETIX’s char­i­ty part­ners Hugo and Lies­je Tem­pel­man in South Africa: an incred­i­ble, emo­tion­al per­for­mance by the choir, which was brought to life as one of the projects there and which is now about to sign its first record deal. This year’s dona­tion of € 50,000 is going to help fur­ther advance cur­rent projects, such as work with dis­abled chil­dren and an urgent­ly need­ed food pro­gramme. ENERGETIX’s sup­port is help­ing demon­strate that ‘tal­ent can help grow out of pover­ty’ as Hugo Tem­pel­man said.

Moti­vat­ed down to their fin­ger­tips

Careers by the mem­bers of the STARCLUB – and par­tic­u­lar­ly the One Year STARCLUB – once again demon­strat­ed that ENERGETIX’s suc­cess mod­el con­tin­ues to cre­ate the best oppor­tu­ni­ties for both the present and the future. That was also shown by the 50 new­com­ers who were pre­sent­ed at the begin­ning of the event – many of whom have already revealed their great tal­ents that will con­tin­ue to devel­op with the moti­va­tion­al boost that the Col­lec­tion Pre­miere deliv­ered.

You’ll find a sum­ma­ry of the day and the fan­tas­tic atmos­phere here – it’s def­i­nite­ly worth a watch:

HIGHLY EMOTIONAL: ENERGETIX’s international kick-off meeting 2021

The atmos­phere at ENERGETIX’s pre­vi­ous events to kick off the year has always been unique. Enthu­si­as­tic peo­ple in front of the cam­eras at the head­quar­ters in Bin­gen and in front of their screens at home demon­strat­ed that it’s also pos­si­ble to achieve the same effect on-line: goose bumps again and again, the desire to per­se­vere, opti­mism, moti­va­tion and always the heart­felt grat­i­tude for being giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty of belong­ing to the ENERGETIX fam­i­ly – all that marked an unfor­get­table day.

“The glass is half full.”

That was the opti­mistic approach that char­ac­ter­ized how Sole Share­hold­er and CEO Roland Förster wel­comed his vir­tu­al guests from 10 coun­tries. He high­light­ed the impres­sive achieve­ments that have been accom­plished in spite of the pan­dem­ic in his chat with host Markus Appel­mann. Lock­down in spring 2020 meant that ‘sales through our main dis­tri­b­u­tion chan­nels, the home par­ties and trade fairs, basi­cal­ly dropped to zero overnight’. But the rapid response and ini­tia­tives by both the busi­ness part­ners and the com­pa­ny allowed us to move most of the prod­uct pre­sen­ta­tions on-line. That shift result­ed in sales increas­ing again to more than 50% in just a very short peri­od. “I would nev­er have thought that pos­si­ble,” says the own­er of the fam­i­ly-run, self-financed com­pa­ny, which was able to fund the tran­si­tion and con­se­quent­ly the future thanks to suf­fi­cient reserves.

Awards that went to the heart

The strategy’s suc­cess was not least appar­ent in the many mov­ing trib­utes that Jes­si­ca Schlick and Alexan­der Link pre­sent­ed. The words of appre­ci­a­tion from the man­age­ment, as well as from accom­pa­ny­ing men­tors, struck a chord with the award recip­i­ents. The grat­i­tude that it was ‘pos­si­ble to belong to the ENERGETIX fam­i­ly’ and thus to be suc­cess­ful, par­tic­u­lar­ly dur­ing the cur­rent cri­sis, was expressed again and again. Per­son­al sales and com­pe­ti­tions along with team-build­ing and the STARCLUB pre­sent­ed lots of oppor­tu­ni­ty to high­light spe­cial achieve­ments and make very per­son­al trib­utes. Then there were the 10-year anniver­saries to cel­e­brate as well as a spe­cial appre­ci­a­tion of the suc­cess­ful new­com­ers. Live video links meant that those being hon­oured were able to share their moti­va­tion and grat­i­tude with view­ers.

Celebrating together thanks to technical skills

The event was not only char­ac­ter­ized by emo­tion­al trib­utes but also by the var­ied pro­gramme and the many oppor­tu­ni­ties that allowed par­tic­i­pants to join in. It was pos­si­ble, for exam­ple, for live music requests to be sent to the DJ dur­ing the event and pho­tos of smart out­fits to be uploaded from liv­ing rooms and cock­tails in the company’s colours to be shared. The inter­ac­tive sur­veys and live videos with danc­ing busi­ness part­ners also con­tributed to cre­at­ing a real par­ty feel­ing!

IT in a new light

Alexan­der Link was able to cre­ate new incen­tives with the lat­est ‘BOOST YOUR BUSINESS! FOR EVERYONE’ com­pe­ti­tion and to draw atten­tion to this year’s spe­cial offers. He also empha­sized at the same time that there were, of course, great peo­ple and many suc­cess sto­ries behind all the IT devel­op­ments and fig­ures of the last few months. “Sit­ting in front of a com­put­er is not where the fun is. It’s the get­ting new things off the ground togeth­er with busi­ness part­ners that I enjoy most,” says Alexan­der Link.

New jewellery to kick off the year

The new jew­ellery is, of course, one of the most pop­u­lar aspects of the kick-off event. It cre­ates the oppor­tu­ni­ty to specif­i­cal­ly get in touch with cus­tomers par­tic­u­lar­ly for the upcom­ing ‘spe­cial days’, in oth­er words, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and church hol­i­days, as jew­ellery design­er Brit­ta Rejek men­tioned while shar­ing a few moti­va­tion­al tips. Valu­able sales argu­ments also came from the cre­ative cor­ner.

As the caterpillar said to the butterfly …

Star train­er Tobias Beck pro­vid­ed so many tips that it brought the moti­va­tion­al bar­rel to over­flow­ing – like the exam­ple of a barn full of gold that he used to describe the sit­u­a­tion of net­work mar­ket­ing as it is now and after coro­na. There were just a few rules to add that net­work mar­keters should abide by, for instance: “Peo­ple don’t buy the prod­uct, they buy you and your ener­gy!” And this coach has plen­ty of that. “Become a peo­ple mag­net! Fly out like a bee – from flower to flower!” And, then, one day, you’ll hear, “My God, how you have changed, as the cater­pil­lar said to the but­ter­fly!”

All in all, a max­i­mum of moti­va­tion from the top coach, who’s sure to pro­vide us with plen­ty of sup­port in the future, just as Joey Kel­ly has done for years.

Motivation and goal setting: Joey Kelly

A reunion that brought great joy even if there was no hug­ging allowed this time. But the words of the per­former and extreme sports per­son­al­i­ty were all the more heart­felt for that: “ENERGETIX is one big fam­i­ly and I’m glad we see each oth­er every year.” But how do you moti­vate your­self in crises like this? Moti­va­tion is not dif­fi­cult if you do what you love … those who remain flex­i­ble and who are will­ing take a new path will be the win­ners. His advice: “Nev­er give up, you have to set goals and be tough about achiev­ing them. Being suc­cess­ful is fun. Team­work is also very impor­tant in this regard.” And Joey had a reas­sur­ing pre­dic­tion: “2021 is going to be a strong year; dif­fi­cult at first – but then all the bet­ter.” Roland Förster also sees the pos­i­tive effect of flex­i­bil­i­ty and break­ing new ground: “The on-line sit­u­a­tion is enor­mous­ly impor­tant. Embrace the oppor­tu­ni­ties – with and with­out coro­na.” And his call to all: “Make 2021 your year!”

Many busi­ness part­ners start­ed doing so the fol­low­ing day with the addi­tion­al moti­va­tion of the col­lage train­ing with Ulrich Lang and Biba Marseglia. Even the on-line ver­sion of the train­ing was once again a unique expe­ri­ence and a great start to a year of visu­al­ized goals.

So with that in mind, let’s GROW TOGETHER. NOW MORE THAN EVER.
