WILMINGTON, Del., Dec. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 500 employees and special guests of The Siegfried Group, LLP (Siegfried) recently convened in Las Vegas for a Firm-wide, multi-day event at the Cosmopolitan, a luxury resort in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
On one of these days, Siegfried held its National Summit. "We haven't done this in a while," said Rob Siegfried, Founder and CEO. "But we wanted to get you all out here to reconnect, better understand our higher purpose, gain some insight into the Firm's future, and of course, have fun."
"It's important that you understand what we're trying to accomplish, and why and where you come into that," he continued. "By helping us go where we want to go, are you supporting where you want to go? When those things are aligned, it's really powerful." Siegfried shared many insights and challenged everyone to become better leaders to exponentially improve their Lives.
During the National Summit, Rob Siegfried, Firm President Joan Davidson, and members of the National Market Leadership Team took the stage to discuss the Firm, its growth, and its future.
Regional Market Leaders from each of Siegfried's four Regions shared updates on their respective teams, recognized Siegfried Award winners, and encouraged everyone to celebrate their individual contributions and their collective achievements.
In the afternoon, guest speaker Ben Saunders, polar explorer and endurance athlete with five North Pole expeditions to his name, addressed the crowd, encouraging them to embrace their ambition, their courage, and the challenge of leadership. "No one else is the authority on your potential," he said. "I have a healthy disdain for the word 'impossible.'"
Guests were entertained during a special segment by Steven Brundage, a professional magician who recently appeared on the television show "America's Got Talent" and is best known for his routines with Rubik's® Cubes.
Lip Sync Battle
In the evening, Siegfried's Professional Resources, National Market Leadership Team, Executive Team, Operations Team, and special guests gathered at Marquee Club for the first ever Siegfried Lip Sync Battle. Twenty talented groups took the stage to entertain the crowd, and ultimately, a team from the Northeast Region was crowned the champion for their performance of PSY's "Gangnam Style."
"I can't really describe what an amazing trip this was," said Melanie Hope, an Associate Manager from Siegfried's Charlotte Market. "I feel so grateful to work for a Firm that puts so much time, energy, and resources into its people. The most important lesson I think I've learned is how limitless my potential is, and that if you fully commit to your journey and engage in life, anything is possible."
