On June 28, 2014, H2 Concepts went to Philadelphia for this year’s Industry National Conference. There was an amazing energy buzzing through the office while the competition was brewing for this award ceremony. They worked hard as individuals and continued to train and develop their teams showing that team work is essential to succeed. The H2 Team was given several major awards including Rising Star, Achievement Award, Administrator of the Year, and the 50/50 Award.
One of the Rising Star Awards went to Alan Caldwell, Corporate Trainer for H2 Concepts. Alan received his award because of his positive energy and student mentality, which has helped him learn as much as possible and teach others what he has learned. “Having fun while out working with clients is a huge part of my success, because you can’t take work too serious all the time. You have to let the negatives roll off your back and keep going. If you enjoy what you do then you truly do not work a day in your life,” Alan commented. He plans to be Vice President in the company within the next 8 years and have court side Knick’s tickets for life. He says that helping to support his large family is his main motivation to be successful in the future.
Andrew Agiato was given the Rising Star Award because of his “down for whatever” attitude when it comes to his personal and his team’s success. He is always willing to go the extra mile, helping them in the field or personal life and making sure that no one is left behind. Andrew said, “I am motivated by my little sister, she is the reason that I work so hard. I want to prove to her that no matter how hard something may be if you stick to it you will surely enjoy the outcome and reap the rewards of a successful career.” Andrew plans to finish his degree in Accounting while continuing to grow his team to see what he can achieve.
Valeria Carmelo received the Achievement Award due to her success at training and her all-around ability to build relationships with everyone in the office. Valeria was promoted to Senior Corporate Trainer just before the conference for these same reasons. “My family motivates me to be the best that I can be. Coming here from Italy and not having them with me is hard, but every time we talk they tell me that they are proud of everything I have accomplished. I can’t wait to be at a point in the company to have financial freedom to travel and spend more time with my family whether it is here in America, Italy, or another country.”
Michael Hanley was awarded the Achievement Award for his ability to adapt to a new campaign and still have a positive attitude. He gives 100% into the everyday activities and follows the training systems to a “T.” “I am motivated by my desire for success and my ability to accept any challenge, bringing out the best in myself and the others around me.” Michael plans to have his office up and running by the end of 2015 and his long term goal is to put his mother on payroll so she can enjoy life without any worries.
Dan Rosenberg was awarded an Achievement Award and the 50/50 Award because he was able to bring grow the H2 Concepts team to over 40 marketing reps in Long Island by May 2014. Motivated by family, Dan says, “I work for my family to support them in every way possible.” Dan’s immediate goal for next year is to win the Most Improved Manager Award and Manager of the Year Award. His long term goal is to be Vice President by 2016 having 35 offices with 20 Assistant Managers and 30 Senior Corporate Trainers.
H2 Concepts is filled with exceptional people who work well on their own as well as in teams. They continue to be on the top of their campaigns and are moving quickly dominating the New York area. It will be marvelous to see what happens next year.
