Our Australia team had their First Annual Sales Summit in South Melbourne to talk shop, discuss goals, and work through the objections they have faced so far this year. A few key takeaways for the team were sales techniques to achieve their goals and tips on how to be successful within YETI. This meeting refreshed the team and built excitement for the next quarter. Overall the week was a huge success and they are off to a fresh start!

As a way to offer YETI employees at HQ more exposure to different areas of our business, we have launched the 2018 Speaker Series. YETIzens met with the Global Supply Planning &amp; SIOP Manager, where she shared her career path and gave more insight into the Supply Planning function at YETI. The Supply Planning team plays one of the most visible and critical roles in ensuring the company has the right products, at the right places, at the right times.

Meet our Badass of the Week, Nancy Zhu. Nancy provides support for our China operation and organization. She was masterful in putting together our supplier summit event on short notice. She went the extra mile (Core Value #4!) to make sure our suppliers understood the business and vision of where we are going and even arranged a translator to make sure they didn't miss a moment. Set in a beautiful location that fits our cultural values, the event went off without a hitch. Thank you Nancy!
When Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast, all the hard work and heart Billy Durney put toward building his dream restaurant came to an unexpected halt. But that didn't stop this bodyguard-turned-pitmaster from pulling through for his Brooklyn community. He lifted his hometown's spirits with damn good barbecue, and in turn, they inspired his greatest pursuit yet. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQKwd
