September 2020 Team Training Days (TTDs)
Lots of inspirational Kaszazz leaders are running September 2020 Team Training Days (TTDs) right around the country (some are holding virtual events where physical gatherings are not possible). Most are being run on the weekend of the new product release; Saturday-Sunday September 19-20 2020.
Please RSVP by 15/8/20 to attend a physical or virtual TTD event!
Customers are welcome to attend physical and virtual TTD events at the discretion of the TTD leader.
See all the TTD dates and venues at the bottom of this article.
If you are able to attend a physical event - it is crucial you do so safely by strictly adhering to the COVID-19 guidelines and regulations in your state (check your states government website for more details).
September 2020 TTD - Full Project Set and Create and Play Pack options.
The September 2020 TTD will feature a coordinating project set! A project set consists of a Make and Take project and two 2H workshops (1 cardmaking and 1 scrapbooking). Consultants will be able to run a FREE Make and Take Demonstration after TTD and then book their attendees into a follow up 2H workshop.
Enough materials will be provided in your September 2020 “Create and Play” pack to create all three projects.
Attending a physical TTD will cost $60 for consultants and $75 for customers. (contains $95.30 RRP value)
Virtual TTD Packs:
In a normal TTD setting the leader will share the additional stamps needed to create the workshops – since this is not possible in isolation it is necessary to include ALL the products required to complete the project set (excludes the heat tool, acrylic blocks and items on the BYO tool list).
Attending a virtual TTD will cost $149.95 for consultants and $159.95 for customers. (contains $267.90 RRP value, including 9 stamps, a new Ranger product and lots more exciting new Kaszazz items).
You are able to purchase either of these packs (1 per consultant) whether you are attending a physical or virtual event. The choice is yours, just let your TTD Leader know.
New Products at September 2020 TTD
Attending a September 2020 TTD will keep your Kaszazz business fresh and exciting, and of course is a great chance to see and try the exciting new products!
Each TTD will cover or include:
- Seeing our new stamps and SB Paper collection (Floral Splash), plus other exciting new products at the new products showcase,
- 2 hands-on 2H projects,
- 1 MT project,
- Both generous Create and Play Packs, will include almost everything needed to create the Floral Splash 2H and MT projects plus lots of left overs - carefully check the BYO tools list below!
New Kaszazz Catalogue!
There will be a brand new Kaszazz catalogue released at the September 2020 Team Training Days! All September TTD attendees will be given a FREE catalogue on the day, as a “thanks for attending” gift (included in all Create and Play Packs)
You can now pre-order your catalogues (in boxes of 14 only) for $120 per box (saving over 10%) using the code 8548.
The new Kaszazz catalogue will be a saleable item (previously an admin item), will count towards your sales and you will be able to sell catalogues through your web store. The price of the September 2020 catalogue will be RRP $9.95 (order using the code 8848 after Sunday September 20 2020 – if you order using the code 8848 before Sunday September 20 you will receive the September 2019 catalogue).
Pre-ordered catalogue boxes will not be dispatched until Thursday September 17 2020. Collect orders for catalogues can be collected from Monday September 21 2020. Please do not include any other items in your pre-order as pre-orders will be held until Thursday September 17 2020.
FREE Catalogues for Active Consultants: One FREE copy will be sent to all consultants (in their next order following the release) if they achieved active status (including active breaks) in the month prior to its release.
TTD Social Media Blackout!
It is common practice for all TTD leaders and attendees to keep all TTD information confidential until 12 noon (SA time) on the Sunday of the TTD weekend to ensure the surprise factor is not ruined for those attending on the Sunday - this has become known as the Social Media Blackout.
We are also aware that some leaders like to run a New Products Event with their customers immediately after their TTD. Issues could arise where customers are not aware of the Social Media Blackout and place images online or even phone other consultants to place orders, but the consultant themself is yet to see the products. We have asked all TTD leaders to inform any customers viewing new products before 12 noon (SA time) on the Sunday about the Social Media Blackout.
All new products are available for viewing and ordering by 5pm on the Sunday of the TTD weekend.
Thank you to everyone for continuing to respect this approach to help make TTD such a fun and exciting day!
4 Month Active Status Certificate of Achievement
You will receive an active status certificate of achievement (including $100 voucher) if you have achieved active status (including active breaks) in the 4 months prior to the TTD new product release month. See Consultant Guidelines Manual (CGM) 27 Consultant Rewards for full details.
If you qualify, and are attending a TTD, your leader will present your active status certificate of achievement (including $100 voucher) on the day. This means you can personalize your reward by selecting your favourite products from the brand new range (or anything else you would like)!
If for some reason you can’t attend the TTD that you booked into, you will need to arrange with your TTD leader to collect your certificate at a later date.
If you qualify and are unable to attend a TTD, Kaszazz will email your certificate (including $100 voucher) in the week following the TTD weekend.
Consistent Active Status Yearly Awards
Maintaining active status month after month is a worthy achievement, recognised and celebrated through our Consistent Active Status Awards! See Consultant Guidelines Manual (CGM) 27 Consultant Rewards for full details.
All trophies, certificates and vouchers will be presented at the upcoming TTD, to consultants who achieved the award in the 4 months prior to the new product release month.
If you are unable to attend a TTD, your reward will be sent to you with your next order dispatched after the TTD weekend.

Competition - “Show and Tell Challenge”
The “Show and Tell Challenge” involves creating a project to bring along to TTD. The challenge is that your TTD competition entry must use only current range Kaszazz products (excluding items on the already announced discontinued list) to create a Christmas themed project of your choice.
To ensure an even playing field:
- TTD Leaders who wish to enter the competition may do so, but are not to use any September 2020 new products not yet released.
- Only 1 competition entry per person (of course, you can show off all your other creations to your friends later).
Everyone attending the TTD will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite project on display. TTD leaders will collate the votes and announce 1st, 2nd and 3rd winners!
All winners will receive a “Choose from list” voucher, so they can pick their own prize! Each list will include 1 or more items from the new product release.
TTD RSVP Date - 15th August 2020 - Book NOW!
Please be aware that the time you will have to RSVP to attend a TTD is very short!
See all the TTD dates and venues at the end of this article.
You must advise your TTD leader on or before midnight (SA time) Saturday August 15 2020 that you will be attending. This is to ensure the TTD leaders have their numbers and can place their TTD orders with Kaszazz in time.
Please help your TTD leaders by being prompt and booking your place and making your payment with them well before Saturday August 15 2020 as “late fees” may apply.
All payments to be made to your TTD leader. If the payment details are not shown, your TTD leader will advise you how to pay when you make your booking.
As TTD leaders make a significant investment in running TTDs, we strongly encourage all TTD leaders to accept cash (or direct deposit) payments only and to pass on any “late fees” to any attendees who book late.
Bookings are essential - book early, as places are limited!
Support for New Product Events (NPEs)
Decide the program, and the name, of your very own Kaszazz supported Business Building Event (BBE) to celebrate the new product release with your customers!
A “New Product Event” is just the name we use for the event when talking to consultants. Because you get to design the program, you need to come up with a suitable name. But, we do ask that the name begins with “New Product”. So, you might choose to run a “New Product Showcase” or a “New Product Card Buffet” or a “New Product Launch” or a “New Product Make and Take” etc.
Read all about running a New Product Event in Consultant Guidelines Manual (CGM) 18 Business Building Events, then start planning to take advantage of the generous Kaszazz support by running one or more NPEs in the 23 days following the September 2020 TTD.
NPEs are a great way to introduce your customers to our September 2020 new products - NPEs must be held within 23 days of the TTD.
When setting the cost of your NPE please note that the recommended customer attendance fees will be:
- $30 for the cardmaking workshop, and
- $30 for the scrapbooking workshop.
As detailed in CGM 18, if you will be charging customers to attend your NPE you need to decide the price. As a minimum this should be the recommended price of any 2H workshops your customers will be making plus any additional amount for lunch (if provided) and a contribution to the venue cost. If you are offering the choice between two differently priced workshops at your event, we suggest that you make the cost to attend the more expensive option and then use the additional notes section of the bookings form to offer the cheaper alternate.
If you are Consultant Training Program (CTP) certified, please consider running one or more Kaszazz supported New Product Events (NPEs).
If you are not yet CTP certified, you still have plenty of time to become CTP certified and organise a NPE. Ask your upline, or FREE call Kaszazz 1800 649 191.
Please note that you can run a NPE even if you were unable to attend a September 2020 TTD!
If you are running a NPE on the Saturday of the TTD weekend, please remember to explain to your customers about our Social Media Blackout so as not to ruin the surprise for those attending an event on Sunday!
