The Australian market has long been an exciting site of growth for Young Living. Thanks in part to your passion and dedicated efforts, the Brisbane office has supported remarkable growth for many years.
To better support the continued growth and progress of our Australian market, CEO Mary Young and we as an executive team have made the decision to move the Young Living Australia offices to Sydney, NSW. The decision will place Young Living in the both the country’s largest city and at the heart of its booming network marketing industry. The larger population of Sydney tends to more fully embrace the direct selling model, allowing us to share our pure, authentic products more effectively. Additionally, this move will be accompanied by a move to newer, streamlined shipping processes, offering you better and quicker ordering than ever before.
While this move will ultimately create exciting new growth for Young Living, we are aware that it may create challenges for some of our valued employees. We are very grateful for their hard work, passion, and expertise, and so we are implementing a robust transition support program, which includes relocation support and one-on-one consultation.
The transition to new facilities will begin in late September 2015, with a target completion date in January 2016. We are very excited for the new opportunities and growth that will come with moving Young Living Australia offices to Sydney, and would like to express our deep gratitude for the dedication and service of our members in Brisbane, who have helped made our growth in Australia not only possible, but remarkable. We are also thankful to the city of Brisbane, for its hospitality and openness to Young Living for the past several years.
Our new facility will have multiple meeting rooms available for our members free of charge. Additionally, we will have a 70 seat state-of-the-art theatre with the latest audio visual for members to use also free of charge. This brand new 5-star building is located on the top floor of the Hills Shire Council building in the heart of the Norwest business park and located 450m walk from the new Norwest train station opening at the end of 2016. Bus stops are located 150m walk away with access to major centres in Sydney.
We are creating an atmosphere in the office in which Will Call will be open 6 days a week that members feel confident and comfortable bringing new people to, experiencing what Young Living is all about. We will be proud to welcome you and your guests to our Young Living Experience Centre where you will be embraced into our Young Living history and culture. Whilst we anticipate the new office to open in November, the official opening ceremony will not be until early 2016.
Again, thank you for your hard work; we’re thrilled to keep building this incredible market and making our pure, authentic products available to even more families!
