LOCAL AVON SALES LEADER WINS A BRAND NEW MAZDA

Local Wisbech resident and Independent Avon Sales Leader, Michelle Clark, won a brand new Mazda at Avon’s annual “Live Your Dream” event as part of the company’s 50th anniversary celebrations in the UK.  The grand prize draw took place to reward Avon Sales Leaders for their hard work and determination throughout Avon UK’s golden anniversary year. 

Avon, the world’s largest direct selling beauty company, organises the event for Sales Leaders, as part of Avon’s reward and recognition scheme.  Successful Representatives (who sell products to friends, family colleagues etc) can move into Avon Sales Leadership which gives them the chance to manage a team of Representatives whilst earning variable commission on their team’s paid sales. 

The Drive Your Dream grand prize draw gave Avon Sales Leaders at the event the opportunity to win a brand new Mazda sports car. Richard Pinnock, Avon UK’s Executive Director of Sales, presented Michelle with her prize.

Richard Pinnock, Avon UK’s Executive Director of Sales, said, 
“In Avon UK’s 50th year, the “Live Your Dream” conference feels very special and we’re proud to be celebrating the achievements of everyone this year. We wanted to give something special back to the Avon Sales Leaders and give everyone a chance to win this fantastic prize.  Michelle, alongside all of the Sales Leaders, is a very deserving winner.” 

Michelle, Avon Sales Leader, said, 
“I could not believe it when I heard my name. I thought it must have been a mistake.”   Michelle arrived on stage to a shower of confetti and tickertape, and said, 
“I would never have expected to win, I am lost for words.”

AVON sales leader Michelle Clark is living her dream and has a brand new dream car to prove it.

The 42-year-old from Wisbech is the proud owner of a Mazda MX-5 in recognition of her success as one of the top achieving Avon sales leaders of the year in the UK.

Michelle heard she had won the car while at a 'Live your Dream' event organised as part of Avon's 50th anniversary celebrations in the UK.

She said: "I couldn't believe it when I heard my name. I thought it must have been a mistake. I would never have expected to win, I am lost for words."

Michelle's win comes five years after joining Avon as a sales leader and gradually expanding her area from just Cambridgeshire to move into Essex. Initially working part time for Avon, Michelle has now given up her previous job to work full time for the company and has been using her previous sales experience to attain great results.

So what has made the mum of three such an Avon success story? Michelle said: "I think basically it is just being me. I just do what I enjoy and I think that makes you successful."

Michelle has around 75 other Avon employees under her guidance covering a huge range of people from single mums, students and male reps.

But Michelle does not intend to stand still in her career with Avon. She said: "The only way is up for me. Everyone thinks that it is always someone else who wins a prize but this time it is me. I can tell you I was bouncing off the ceiling and the floor when I realised it was me and I really love the car.
