Ever since Colgate East & West Africa (EWA) started hosting their Distributors Conference in 2012, LimelightSA has been firmly on board. Apart from sharing company information, the annual get-togethers offer the roughly 80 delegates – comprising Colgate employees and distributors from the East and West Africa region – the opportunity to get to know each other a little better, thereby strengthening the Colgate EWA family.
The 2019 conference, themed Africa for Growth, welcomed delegates to the beautiful Arabella Hotel & Spa in Hermanus in mid-November. A welcome dinner gave everyone the chance to catch up before the first day’s conferencing.
However, fun is always on the agenda. After lunch on day 1, everyone took part in an Amazing Race team-building activity through the streets of Hermanus, followed by the much-anticipated Awards Evening dinner at Benguela Cove.
The last day of the conference were put to good use by sharing new product developments and product launches, as well as the chance to get your hands dirty—with paint. With a great deal of enthusiasm, hands were dipped in colourful pigments to create a canvass that symbolised the Protex message of Good Together. The final activity put everyone’s science skills to the test with a couple of experiments to highlight innovations in Oral Care.
As always, it was over all too soon – another successful Colgate EWA gathering that delegates will remember, and draw inspiration from, until they meet again.
