On a balmy evening in July our Top Seller team held their first VIP seller event at our office in Auckland. The big idea was to gather feedback from some of our most experienced sellers on what we could do better, and recognise the great work they do on the site and for our community of members.
The event kicked off with a welcome from our Top Seller team manager Nicky, before a handful of presentations from our CEO, our head of Marketplace and our head of Marketing.
After splitting into smaller groups for feedback sessions, the team held a Q&A session with some of our senior staff. Once our panel were thorougly but fairly grilled by the audience, they shifted gears and kicked off the awards part of the evening.
Congratulations to these sellers for taking home a trophy:
Cosimo - Community spirit award
Hazza - People-pleaser award
