VP Donna Imson and AVP Asha Krishnan continued their tour together in Burkina Faso. Held at SIAO Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso last 24 November 2012, the event gathered 1498 excited and enthusiastic attendees.

Speaking at the event were VP Donna and AVP Asha, with Mr Abdul Bonkongou and Mr Eloi as the MC and translator. Also present at the event were Mr Jean Luc from Ivory Coast, Mr Souleyment (agent), Mr Aristide (agency manager), and Mr Bado (BDE in charge).

First up was Mr Eloi’s introduction of Mr Abdul Bonkongou as a top leader of Burkina Faso who brought this opportunity to his country to help others change their lives. He shared his experience since he started the business and talked about Find 2. He also talked about the importance of dreams and acting upon them, so one should have his mind set if he/she chooses to go with the business. He finished by inviting AVP Asha on the stage.

AVP Asha motivated the audience by telling them about her journey since she joined the business. After her 1-hour speech, she invited VP Donna on the stage.

VP Donna shared her experience before and after she joined the business and talked about F2. She then focused on the main concern that the audience always have: fear of taking a risk. She merely advised them to be eagles instead of chickens and ended her speech by telling each of attendees to find their 2 every month.

On 23/11/12, 7pm to 10pm, VP Donna met with the top 300 Burkina Faso leaders in Palace Hotel and discussed with them the strategy of F2, and how they can approach new people with this business.  AVP Asha also shared her experience in how to get close to people and bring them to this opportunity

On 25/11/12, from 7pm to 10pm, VP Donna met with the Burkina Faso market women in Palace hotel as well as more than 500 attendees where she elaborated how women can take care of their families while doing the business the right way.

Burkina Faso’s Ouedraogo wins Tour Du Faso 2012

Rasmaney from Burkina Faso

OUAGADOUGOU (Burkina Faso), Oct 28, 2012: It was a day of national joy and pride for Burkina Faso when Rasmane Ouedraogo was crowned the Champion of Tour Du Faso 2012.

The local boy achieved this feat after completing a gruelling 1,337.3km over 10 stages under the punishing sun, crossing tough but magnificent landscape in this West African nation.

The 26th edition of the Tour Du Faso, one of Africa’s premier cycling events attracted 15 teams and 70 riders including a team each from Germany, France, Netherlands and Belgium.

Champion Ouedraogo, who took up cycling as a sport in 2002, said he is very happy that QNET has come on board to sponsor the Tour. He attributed his success to determination and hard work. “I spent the last four months in France preparing for the Tour Du Faso with an intensive training program prepared by my coach.

“Since this is the fourth time I am participating in this Tour, I know the level of competition is very high and I was determined to be fully prepared,” he said.

QNET Director of Sports Sponsorships, Mr Joachim Steffen, said he is delighted that a local rider from Burkina Faso won the 2012 edition of Tour Du Faso.

“We share the joy and pride of the people of Burkina Faso today, and I say congratulations to you. It is truly amazing what Ouedraogo has achieved in this very competitive cycling event.

“As a company that prides itself in harnessing the power of sport, QNET is truly proud to be a part of the Tour Du Faso. We look forward to seeing cyclists from Burkina Faso and Africa in general go on to win many more international cycling awards,” he said.

QNET actively engages in sports sponsorships – from motor sports and football, to hockey and badminton – and aims to promote collaboration and giving back to local communities, through its sponsorships.

The company believes their association with the Tour Du Faso will help positively raise the profile of the event, while drawing on the passion, teamwork, drive and success that is associated between sports and its direct selling business, as both are platforms for true excellence and performance.

The Day 6 Tour Du Faso came to an exhilarating end when De Groot Wouter from Team Netherlands staged a strong come back to finish to win the race.

Onlookers lined up the finish line 1 hour before the end to get a glimpse of the riders. Despite the weather Wouter held on to the lead.

Sangare Oumar from Team Mali won the QNET cyclist with the best fighting spirit award as he fought his way during the race. This award is given to the cyclist who shows great fighting spirit throughout the race and not necessarily is the winner.

QNET IRs had set up a booth at the finishing point and received tremendous response from people who wanted to know what QNET is all about.

It was a proud day for Burkina Faso fans when local boy Ouedraogo Rasmane from Team Burkina held on to the yellow jersey and won many other awards.
