“From all around the world with one common goal: to succeed together” was the 2nd edition of Studio20 Academy’s motto. Managers, trainers, support teams, photographers, network supervisors, marketers from studios from Romania, Colombia and the US, joined forces for the 2nd edition of Studio20 Academy, that took place in Poiana Brasov, Romania.
The parking lot of the Teleferic Hotel in Poiana Brasov got somewhat more exciting when on February 20th, #girlsfromstudio20 CLA Mercedes started arriving and checking in. Chic colors and the bright, vibrant red of the Studio20 logo, looked absolutely amazing in the snowy scenery of this fabulous ski resort. One by one, teams from the Studio 20 international network arrived and it was just like a family reunion, with everyone smiling and happy to see and meet one another.
“The first Studio20 Academy took place 6 months ago and we only had the Romanian studios participating. This 2nd edition was internationally attended (as we’re the only cam studio that has establishments worldwide). To say that it was a dream come true wouldn’t be enough. I am a dreamer and an absolute doer and I always follow my goals until they are reached, no matter how hard it is.” said Mugur Frunzetti, Studio20 CEO.
“This February I’m celebrating 19 years since I started my first cam studio and today we have 19 International Studio20 franchises. All the studios are doing amazingly well, we have new ones opening and 2019 is going to be one of our busiest years so far. I am eagerly awaiting the amazing party we’ll be putting on for the 20th studio opening very soon, under the #20studio20 motto“.
This 2nd edition’s goal was focused on building better connections within the team, not just within each studio but also at a global level, establishing and learning about new ways to grow the model’s revenue, improving leadership and support and sharing different approaches that worked in different locations.
All 50 participants were asked to make a presentation on any chosen topic related to our “we succeed together” and our approach based on excellence. All interactive presentations, full of amazing videos, were explained by the authors to the whole group and were given feedback and graded. The top three presentations were awarded 2000 EUROs worth of prizes.
“We know that to build a house you have to have a good foundation. In Studio20’s case, that foundation is the team. We help build each other up and hold onto each other for support during our downfalls. At one point, the conference got a bit emotional for everyone from the initial Studio20 team. Five years ago, we were just one studio with a dream and yet today, we are so much closer to Mugur’s vision of 100 studios network WORLDWIDE. When we see so many people, that not only believe in the same dream that we do but put in so much effort, to enable those bigger and better dreams, we know we’re on the right track. Also, seeing people grow, changing, being empowered, having a voice, that’s the best feeling in the world.” – Andra Chirnogeanu, Studio 20 PR & Marketing Manager.
