General Session II: CEOs Discuss Unity

Never has it been more critical for direct sellers to unite to share the same message. Direct selling provides a better life for 16 million Americans. It provides economic independence, a sense of fulfillment, connections with others and a quality of life many do not and cannot achieve through a more traditional workplace environment. During DSA’s 2014 Annual meeting, a panel of industry CEOs will convene to discuss how the sales channel has united in the past year to address the obstacles and challenges, opportunities and successes presented by the marketplace. They’ll share their perspectives as CEOs of direct selling’s most successful companies. Speakers include:
