Preceding Signarama Troy’s recent Caribbean Cruise, our team had the opportunity to visit the United Franchise Group World Headquarters. As a part of the Signarama franchise, our Hall of Fame location operates in the top 1% for the conglomerate. It was a huge honor and very exciting to visit the people who provide so much support for our business.
During our visit we toured the facility which is encompassed in what used to be a movie studio! The headquarters is a combination of offices, sample showrooms for each brand, research and development, production rooms, a full size gym along with a half basketball court, an amphitheater with translation room for international guests and much more. While we toured the grounds we were shown the various areas utilized for supporting our Signarama brand.
The highlight of the experience was a personal presentation by CEO, Ray Titus, inspirational talk from JJ Prendamano both with a video introduction by President, Jim Tatum. Ray had been preparing a speech for the “World Leaders Conference 2014” and presented it to our team as a “warm up”. His talk touched on life/work balance, continuing our education through books about self improvement, and not to multitask when doing certain tasks such as answering a phone or working with a client in person. He passed out several books to our team, notably “The Energy Bus”, by Jon Gordan. Our group has agreed after each of us read every book we will make a habit to enjoy lunch together while sharing our thoughts on each title.
Overall, our day was well spent. We came out of UFG inspired, excited and ready to take on new challenges. It was an experience we will never forget and will always be grateful for having.
