John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand meets Affilorama


Hi Guys

If you've been wondering just what the staff at Affilorama have been up to recently, then this "behind the scenes" bulletin will bring you right up to date!

Last week Nick (Head of Technology) and I flew up to Auckland to attend the Vero Excellence in Business Awards, in which Affilorama was a FINALIST in the category Excellence in Business Support (One to Many).

Although we didn't come home with the prize, we still had a fantastic night. One of the highlights was shooting the breeze with New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key (who by- the-by was an immensely successful businessman before becoming PM, with a personal fortune to the tune of $50 million).

And now it's time to play our annual game of "Where in the World is Mark?" (Hint: It's a bit more exciting than Auckland!)

Mark has just been a guest speaker at PPC Classroom Live  held in Las Vegas from 28th to the 30th May.  Over 700 people attended and had an absolute blast networking and attending workshops.

Here a photo of Mark with attendees (can you spot yourself??).

Mark is now kicking back and relaxing in the balmy European sunshine for a couple of weeks, before rejoining us in mid-July, back in top gear and ready to roll! (He'll still be popping up on the forum and blog every now and again in the meantime).

Well, that's it from me for now. I'll be endeavoring to update you on a monthly basis in future - or as we get breaking news!

Don't forget that you can see for yourself what we're up to at ANYTIME during the day, by checking out our office cam!

Josh Jacobs 15 years ago more Helen Clark? Wow. I'm behind the times. I apologize.

I have to say...excellent work with the camera. It makes it feel like we've got a "connection" to Mark's office.

Thanks for this post and congrats guys for being the finalist of the Vero Business Awards.
Great work in NZ and great show in Vegas! I wished I was there to see Mark live.

Hey Mark if you come to Australia please let us Aussies know so we can catch-up :-)
