PRLog - March 18, 2014 - OAK PARK, Ill. -- The company recently sent two of their best-performing team members, Damion and Jack to the Keys to Success Conference in Dallas, Texas, a one-day training event designed to inspire new approaches to doing business and driving results. The conference is also an opportunity for team members to get to know some of the leading people in the industry, with ample opportunities for networking and building up mutually beneficial professional relationships.
The Dallas event takes place once every quarter, and the top performing team members are invited to attend based on merit. Ignite pays for the flights, accommodation and conference fees of attendees, and in addition to the training opportunities, the day is a chance for the team to get out of the office and travel while working on developing their skills.
Each conference meeting sees six motivational presentations, delivered by some of the top performing executives in the direct marketing industry. These keynote presentations are designed to give attendees an insight into alternative management styles, leadership approaches, and strategies for being more successful in consumer interactions. While spaces are highly limited, those who are invited to attend benefit in a range of ways from these events, and their return to the office has been a boost for the entire team, who can learn from the tips, tactics and approaches they bring back.
According to a spokesperson for Ignite, the opportunity to meet other leading industry professionals is one of the key strengths of the Dallas conferences. “Those who get to attend our Keys to Success Conference have the benefit of seeing how other professionals operate in this industry, so they can be inspired by their successes and share strategies for driving better results. When our people return, they are always bursting with new ideas, both to further their own careers and drive more successful outcomes for the wider team. This makes it an essential part of our training and development structure, and we’re proud to be able to offer such fantastic experiences as part of the career path we’ve created.”
Ignite Sustains Growth with Promotions
Following hot on the heels of the conference, the team from Ignite is projecting a significant expansion over the coming months, and all efforts are being channeled into delivering optimal results across client campaigns. To keep up with the ongoing demand for their services, the company has promoted several team members, in keeping with the mentoring team environment and career focus of the Ignite structure. Jack, Armando, Aaron and Matthew were all promoted to the position of Account Executive, in recognition of their tireless efforts in pushing the company forward.
The company is optimistic about their expansion plans, which will take them into new offices, including a new outlet in Chicago, to be headed up by Linda, who has shown real leadership potential during her time at Ignite. Also exhibiting amazing potential and growth is Paul, who is on his way to being promoted to Assistant Manager.
Linda’s new career opportunity will see her running campaigns, managing a wider territory of 10-15 stores, leadership and training. Her duties will see her establishing and developing client relationships, while orchestrating campaigns on a local, regional and national level to deliver the best results for her clients. This is in keeping with the Ignite approach to graduating individual team members up the career ladder as their skills and abilities improve.
Once he reaches the position of Assistant Manager, Paul’s role is expected to last for a period of up to three months, during which time he will be responsible for learning social media advertising skills, business law, developing advanced campaign strategies and helping on both the client and HR sides of the business. The Assistant Manager supports the manager behind the scenes, offering a helping hand in administration tasks, like payroll and profit and loss reporting, through to helping build stronger bonds with prospective and existing clients.
According to the owner and CEO of Ignite, these individuals were chosen for promotion based on their expertise and hard work to date, which has made them invaluable members of the team. “At Ignite, we are committed to providing opportunities for the brightest and best to develop their careers. As our expansion continues to gather momentum, our latest round of promotions represents an exciting step forward in our collective journey. I personally can’t wait to see the individual contributions of these highly successful team members, and I know they are equally as excited to excel in these new roles.”
In addition to exceptional training opportunities, the company also stresses a team spirit around the office. As such, they recently hosted a social event for everyone to enjoy, which took place at Pin Stripes in Oak Brook. As the company continues to expand across the country, there is a requirement for more new team members to join them in order to help fuel the increase in demand while providing opportunities for hard working team members to develop into business leaders in their own right. As such, the firm will be looking to hire new team members to start the management training program in the near future.
