Interesting news just in from Amway UK/ROI -over on Network Marketing Ireland this news was posted earlier today.
It looks like this change has been brought about because of concerns that the leading ABOs had in the way Amway had placed restrictions on the holding of public open opportunity meeting. The red tape was strangling the growth of the business and needed to be amended.
It’s great to see Amway listening and taking on board the concerns of the ABOs – I think it is safe to say the new Amway is still a work in progress and let us hope that Amway UK/ROI will continue to listen and take on board the ideas and concerns of the ABOs in the field.
Amway have just circulated a new list of open opportunity meetings for February 2009.
What does this mean for the Amway business on these islands?? Amway are keeping to their word in that they said they would publish a list of meetings and they have, they said they would support the ABOs with open meetings and they are. There is a lot of rebuilding to be done to get the Amway business back on track and it will take a combined effort of Amway and ABOs.
From what I can see Amway are putting in the effort. They are supporting the business with – price reductions, promotions, open meetings, a special conference at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Saturday 14th March 2009 and the new London Experience Centre opening early 2009.
So what can the ABO do to play their part and what is the responsibility of the ABO??
The following was posted on Amway.ie & Amway.co.uk today.

Well that’s the first series of open opportunity meetings over for January – Belfast, Athlone & Dublin – It was a great start to the new year and there were good numbers at all meetings. Amway are on the move again in Ireland and by all accounts there are a series of meetings planned for England, Scotland, Wales – not sure what happens on Jersey & Gurnsey.
At all meetings there was a representative from Amway present and he gave a short talk after the presentation. It is great to see Amway promoting the open meetings by email and on the websites I am sure this is encouraging ABOs to get off the couch and attend the meetings. There is one thing I know for sure the rooms will not be big enough next month – If you were an ABO at any of the meetings all you have to do is bring one new person back with you next month and Amway will have a challenge squeezing you all in.
After taking matters up with ‘wordpress’ as to why we were suspended and not to date getting any valid reason for the suspension – they have decided to lift the suspension.
So we are back and after a brief refresher course we will be commenting on all things Amway.
Prior to the suspension our hit rate was climbing sharply and we were becoming a voice in the UK/ROI market so I hpe we can recover the lost ground.
It’s great to be back – so watch this space. Thanks for all the support in the past and the future.
