Our three-city Europe tour concluded in Lyon, France on May 31, and by all accounts it was a smashing success! This special outing brought together Leaders and Members from our main European markets with key LifeWave executives. As usual, great things happen when LifeWave people meet face-to-face, and this tour was certainly no exception.
The tour commenced in Warsaw, Poland, where a standing room only crowd of 400 people heard the latest on LifeWave’s fantastic new product, CORSENTIALS. Founder and CEO David Schmidt also shared insights on the history of our technology, while explaining his vision for the future – making all of those in attendance aware of just how big the LifeWave dream really is.
The day concluded with recognition of our main leaders in Poland, including the presentation of the “Distinguished Leadership Award” to Grzegorz Burian. His accomplishments in initiating and driving the success of the Polish market are a remarkable achievement for the LifeWave family.
The next stop was Munich, Germany, an increasingly vital region, which along with Austria is now LifeWave’s third largest global market. Prior to the presentation, David Schmidt and LifeWave President Mike Collins met with the German-speaking leadership team to discuss ways to build upon the company’s greatest attributes. “There is no finer example of driving LifeWave’s success than our leaders in Austria and Germany,” says Mike. “Together they form a marvelous team that has elevated our efforts to an amazing level.”
David again shared key information related to CORSENTIALS and his vision for the future, but also touched on our patch technology, a cornerstone of growth for LifeWave since the company’s inception. Again the day culminated in the presentation of the “Distinguished Leadership Award” to Hermine Obermann and Kurt Wendler-Rothenberger, two noted LifeWave Leaders in our Austrian market.
The final stop was in Lyon, France, a market that has been of vital importance to LifeWave over the past five years. Saturday’s session had several highlights, including distinguished guest speaker Dr. Pierre Volckmann, a renowned pain management expert. During his presentation, Dr. Volckmann described the amazingly successful results of a clinical trial he conducted using our IceWave patch in five French hospitals.
Currently the Medical Director of a system that includes over 75 institutions and 27 private hospitals, Dr. Volckmann is a member of numerous professional medical societies. He is also a knight of the National Order of Merit – an honor bestowed by the President of the French Republic to people who have accomplished distinguished achievements. “We are so grateful that Dr. Volckmann feels as strongly about our products as we do,” says Mike Collins. “An ally of his stature is invaluable to the overall credibility of our company.”
In keeping with tradition, the tour ended with the presentation of the “Distinguished Leadership Award” to Thierry Ante, whose notable achievements as a LifeWave Leader continue to impress and inspire.
We want to thank our European Leaders for their support of this all-important series of meetings. In LifeWave’s business, there is nothing more crucial than our leadership teams – both corporate and field – joining for open communication and the vital exchange of information. The shared trust of these individuals is truly what LifeWave is built on.
