Highlights from LEAD Jeunesse
North America 2019
JANUARY 11-13, 2019
The first LEAD Jeunesse of 2019 is complete! For so many, it’s the first step toward unbridled leadership potential.
On the first stop of LEAD Jeunesse 2019, we were center stage in Los Angeles, hosting breakout sessions with top North America field leaders on topics that matter most to you. Our Distributors in attendance learned how to achieve Sapphire 25 Executive in 90 days, how to build leadership and new teams in 2019 and how to set and reach goals. And that was just the first day. Get all the highlights from LEAD Jeunesse North America 2019 in our event recap below.
