Portlaoise lady named Star of the Year at Industry Awards

 

Yvonne Flavin, from Portlaoise, has scooped a national award at the recent Stars of Direct Selling Awards. The annual ceremony, which is hosted by the Direct Selling Association of Ireland (DSAI), took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Blanchardstown, Dublin, and celebrates the successes and achievements of direct sellers across the Republic of Ireland.

 

Yvonne, who is a direct seller for Oriflame, was named ‘Star of the Year’, an award which recognises an established direct seller who has continually strived to go above and beyond to maintain a thriving and fulfilling direct selling career. Constantly striving to improve and grow, Yvonne heads a team of 500 direct sellers across Ireland and regularly holds webinars and online training sessions.

 

Yvonne has become an expert in her field since beginning her direct selling career 28 years ago. She joined Oriflame when her family were young as she didn’t want to return to her full-time job as a hairdresser, but still wanted to earn a living for her family.

Lynda Mills, Director General of the DSAI, says: “Yvonne is a fabulous role model for direct sellers; she shows how direct selling can give people a positive and long-lasting career that fits perfectly around family life. It is clear that Yvonne is a worthy winner of this award and I’d like to congratulate her on her success.”

The awards showcased 12 of the most exceptional direct sellers in Ireland, rewarding their hard work over the past year, as well as throughout their careers. The awards were judged by individuals associated with the direct selling industry; they were looking for people that stood out for their hard work, growth, success and personal achievement.

With over 20,000 people now working as direct sellers in the Republic of Ireland, the industry continues to grow in prominence as a real alternative to traditional employment. More people make money through direct selling than any other type of part time work, and the direct selling awards recognise some of the stars of the industry.
