“Well worth the trip” is what Rick Seidman, President and CEO and Todd Phillips, Board of Director and Senior Designer of Quoizel said of their recent trip to Italy to attend the Euroluce Show.

This landmark event of the lighting world is dedicated to innovative lighting solutions.  It is one of the most important lighting industry shows in the European region, an event that brought visitors from around the world.

Quoizel, always wanting to be on the cutting end of lighting designs, attended and assisted in the Elstead showroom one of the leading residential lighting manufacturers and distributors in the UK.  Quoizel is one of Elstead’s featured product lines and have expanded their valuable partnership in recent years. The Phillips and Seidmans, along with Rick’s daughter Nicki (studying in Seville, Spain), welcomed and entertained customers on behalf of Quoizel.


Ding!! Round Two of Sales Training….

Might be a different time zone, but the goal is still the same…to provide the sales force the right tools to improve business communication skills. With that considered one of the most significant skills anyone can have, Shari Harley was asked to pack her bags and travel West to once again share her intriguing sales methods with Quoizel’s West Coast representatives.

Like their comrades from the East Coast, they found Shari’s exercises funny, captivating and useful. They are enthusiastic to use these techniques to better serve their customers.


East Coast Takes on New York City!

This week Quoizel’s East Coast sales force took over New York City!

The enthusiastic group worked with Shari Harley, a sought after speaker for conferences and events through the United States and internationally. Impressed with Shari’s down-to-earth, direct and engaging style at a recent ALA conference, management wanted her to meet and work with Quoizel’s sales force.

Shari’s business communication training courses were a hit. Her programs were funny, engaging, useful, and her exercises gave the attendees tools and techniques to transform every relationship.


Community Event Lives Up to All the Hype!

This past weekend Quoizel held its very popular annual Warehouse Sale. Based on traffic, it seemed most customers liked the sale being held earlier in the year than in past years. With great merchandise such as chandeliers, bath fixtures, table lamps, outdoor lighting, it was no surprise that sales surpassed the November sale’s figures.

It was great to see the faces on those new customers who attended the sale for the first time. Where to look first?  There was so much merchandise to choose from at bargain prices!  Dressed in Quoizel shirts, the employees were eager to assist those new customers as well as the families who return to this community event year-after-year.
