AMBITION 2020 Awards & Recognition

Recognizing Success at AMBITION

One of the great things about AMBITION is the opportunity to honor the many accomplishments of our amazing consultants and their teams. This year was no exception, as we presented awards to those who have not only achieved great success but have also helped mentor and inspire others to do the same.

Thompson Leadership Award
Frank Schmaeling

National Consultant Frank Schmaeling is known for bridging and transcending team boundaries, and his trainings are recognized nationally for their high levels of thoroughness, enthusiasm and attention to detail. He has impacted thousands of consultants over the years and continues to make a difference in the lives of others. He’s already earned the prestigious Impact Award and this year he adds the Thompson Leadership Award to his impressive list of accomplishments.

Impact Award
Doug Parker

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, Ambit leaders had to find a way to respond. And no one was more innovative or had a bigger impact than National Consultant Doug Parker. He organized Facebook events and trainings, took advantage of technology like Zoom and generously loaned his platform to others so they could use it for their own trainings and presentations. He even partnered with NC Chris Atkinson to create Ambit’s Got Talent, helping keep morale high. Doug is a truly deserving winner of this important award.

Ronny Kirkland Perseverance Award
Robert Chang

“Never give up.” That’s the theme of the Ronny Kirkland Perseverance Award, and it might well serve at National Consultant Robert Chang’s personal motto. He started on the West Coast, then moved to the East Coast to pursue his business. And when Ambit expanded into Canada, he saw even more opportunity for growth. He now has the largest organization in the Canada market, showing the true value of persistence and hard work.

Crystal Sphere Award
Holly Martin

To continue to pursue her dreams, Executive Consultant Holly Martin moved her business and her daughters from Illinois to Texas. Her “can-do” attitude and willingness to take risks has helped her build a successful national network of consultants, and she continues to expand her sphere of influence through hard work and setting an example of excellence for others to follow.

Pacesetter Award
Alan Johnston

Over the past decade, Executive Consultant “Coach” Alan Johnston has brought the same dedication and enthusiasm he used to train and condition young athletes to educating consultants. He’s known for coaching the fundamentals and leading by example, and his willingness to work with anyone who’s willing to put in the effort to succeed has made him a mentor to consultants both inside and outside his network. It’s this track record of helping and inspiring others that has made him the first-ever four-time winner of the Pacesetter Award.

Horizon Award
Jon Drew

When he thought Ambit was about to enter his home market, National Consultant Jon Drew enrolled, hoping to get a head start. But Ambit never came into his state. Rather than giving up, he expanded his horizons, using social media and other innovative methods to reach out to potential customers and consultants across the country. Today, Jon not only continues to build his business that way, he trains others on how to use social media to make the most of the Opportunity.

Ambit Choice Award
Victor Fontaine

The winner of the Ambit Choice Award is chosen by their fellow consultants for exemplifying the spirit of Ambit — demonstrating teamwork, a positive attitude, a commitment to excellence and a passion for service. Congratulations to this year’s winner, Executive Consultant Victor Fontaine.
