Maritz Travel partnered with MC&A, Inc. on a program for Cisco Systems’ Chairman’s Club that recently won a prestigious Crystal Award for Exceptional Motivational Travel Program from SITE, a global network of meeting, travel and event professionals with over 2,100 members in 87 countries.
Cisco Systems is the worldwide leader in networking that transforms how people connect, communicate and collaborate. Its Chairman’s Club accomplishes many of their sales-related retention and motivation objectives: motivating and recognizing top sales people, enabling networking, and ensuring winners have exposure to senior leaders.
Cisco engaged Maritz Travel to create a unique motivational experience for the Big Island program that would inspire salespeople to strive for extraordinary business results and recognize them for their hard work and success. Top-performing sales individuals and their guests were invited to attend Chairman’s Club and, along with Cisco Executives, took over the Four Seasons Resort Hualalali, Kona, Hawaii – an ideal venue to offer winners an exclusive experience.
Chairman’s Club had been held in Hawaii for five years and Maritz Travel and Cisco had built strong relationships with MC&A, Inc. Together, a program was created that was filled with the celebration of success for the worldwide sales team and provided a unique experience that winners were able to share with leadership and peers.
