INAUGURAL FUNCTIONS TO BE ORGANIZED BY DISTRIBUTORS SPEECHES TO BE DELIVERED
SPECIAL FEATURES OF INAUGURAL ADDRESS OF DISTRIBUTORS.

Basic structure of all inaugural address is the same, because the objective is to convey our message to a target group of audience. But the message to be communicated may be different and the target audience to whom the message is intended may also be different. This is because the functional objectives of Distributors and Business Associate are different from Dealer. Dealer’s target audience is prospective customers in his sub-area. But the immediate objective of a Distributor is to first get sufficient number of Retailer/Mini Retailer. The distributor audience is therefore prospective and eligible applicants for selection of Retailer/Mini Retailer and thereafter building the business edifice through them. The speeches to be delivered in the inaugural address of the distributor should therefore be in relevance to the objectives.

THE DIFFERENT SPEAKERS FOR THE INAUGURATION FUNCTION WILL BE AS UNDER:-

  1.  Programme announcer: who will also deliver the welcome address. As the organizer of the function, the Distributor may select a suitable person as Programme Announcer for conducting the proceedings of the programme. The announcer should initiate the proceedings with welcome address, which should be brief and intended to welcome the chief guest and other important invitee/participants.
