Telecom master agency Telarus Inc. recently wrapped up its first-ever President’s Club trip for its top partners. Feb. 14-17, Telarus treated its highest performers of 2010 to an all-expenses paid trip aboard Royal Caribbean’s Majesty of the Seas, with stops in Key West, Nassau and CocoCay in the Bahamas. On the ship, agents enjoyed rock climbing, poker, musical performances, comedians, sailing, dancing on the pool deck under the full moon, and fine cuisine.
To wit, agents Zachary Schecter, Tim O’Rourke and Ron Legarski all held their own in a rock-climbing contest proposed by Telarus co-founder Patrick Oborn. They scaled the 100-foot structure in seconds. Meanwhile, agent Wes Spining, from Nashville, won the three-day karaoke contest with a Travis Tritt song. And Tammy Rinella of Total Carrier Solutions won the bingo games twice.
Off the boat, Telarus top performers tanned on the Caribbean beaches and unplugged from their constant communications.
“We believe that the best way we can show our appreciation [is] to give our top agent and carrier partners a few days away to recharge their batteries," said Adam Edwards, president of Telarus. “These folks are so focused on their businesses that you literally have to seclude them on a boat in the middle of the ocean for them to relax, recharge, and to form long-lasting business relationships. Mission accomplished!"
