RISMEDIA, Nov. 16, 2007-For close to twenty years, the top sales professionals of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty have been invited to join the firm’s President and CEO Patricia Petersen for an exclusive off-site three-day business conference. According to the company, representing the highest level of achievement at Daniel Gale Sotheby’s, “The Gold Circle of Excellence” is reserved for the top 10% of its sales associates. This year’s destination for some networking and well-earned relaxation was the idyllic island of Bermuda.
“The Gold Circle trip is one of the highlights of the year, personally and professionally,” says Petersen. “Our top performers are rewarded with a well deserved retreat and we all reap the benefits of the opportunity to share ideas in a relaxed setting.”
Old world splendor is one of the hallmarks of the Fairmont Hamilton Princess, which the Gold Circle contingent called home during their stay. The Gold Circle group of nearly 80 members was treated to a welcome luncheon at the Elbow Beach resort overlooking the turquoise waters and pink sands of Bermuda. Another memorable meal was enjoyed at the internationally acclaimed Four Ways, Bermuda’s oldest inn, dating from 1727.
Planned activities included horseback riding on the beach, a jet-ski safari, a catamaran cruise and snorkeling, swimming with dolphins and a golf tournament.
The final day of the Gold Circle meeting was marked by guest speaker John Ansbach’s presentation on generational dynamics and the real estate customer.
