Cydcor Makes Donation and Sponsors Retreat

Leading global provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales shows appreciation and makes donation during a relaxing and informative weekend in the desert

In early June, Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, sent company leaders and owners of each independently-owned sales office to the Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. The Cydcor sponsored retreat, R&R Weekend, comprised a blend of business, social functions, entertainment and relaxation for business attendees and their friends and family members.

“Cydcor designed this weekend as a thank you for all the hard work and dedication of the owners of Cydcor’s network of independent sales offices, field executives and selected Cydcor corporate office team members,” said Gary Polson, chief executive officer of Cydcor.

The approximately 550 attendees enjoyed a Consultant’s Invitational VIP reception, a general session and organizational lunch meetings, a pool-side themed dinner, lounging by the impressive pool, floating in the lazy river, and exhilarating fun on the resort’s water park slides. The weekend concluded with attendees “getting into the groove” for a Cydcor-style 1980’s themed dinner party. Randomly selected teams competed for top honors in “Family Feud – 80’s style” and the winning five person team split a cash prize of $1,000.

A highlight of the Cydcor weekend event was the second annual five-on-five basketball tournament, organized as a challenge between various Cydcor’s network of independent corporate licensee (ICL) sales offices as well as an opportunity to raise money for a charitable donation. The ICLs raised a total of $1,100, with Cydcor matching the amount—providing a total donation of $2,200.

This year, the money raised was donated to the owner of one of Cydcor’s independent sales offices whose infant daughter was born with Congenital Heart Disease called Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome. The donation will be used to assist with medical expenses that have been accrued while treating her condition.

“We are a business that values giving back to the people we work with, and we are especially happy that we can assist a family we know personally and care deeply about. Because the sales offices do so much for Cydcor, we’re happy to give back to them through this weekend of R&R,” said Jim Majeski, president of Cydcor.
