But the events didn’t stop there! Attendees were also treated to an inside look at Amway products and London’s iconic landmarks, too.
An Incredible Experience
Here are some of the top moments that made Founders Council 2016 the best yet!
Amway hosted a private evening reception and dinner at the Tower of London. Founders Council members also visited the breathtaking Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom — a must see when you’re in London!
Discover The Market
What’s England without a classic English market? Amway set up a custom English market for Founders Council members in the courtyard of the Rosewood Hotel, complete with delicious food and traditional wares.
Founders Council members rode the luxurious Orient Express through the beautiful English countryside to Oxford.
Once in Oxford, they dined in style at the two-Michelin-starred Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, featuring cuisine from world-famous chef Raymond Blanc.
Power of 5
Founders Council Members pledged to support the Nutrilite Power of 5 Campaign to fight childhood malnutrition.
Dr. Sam hosted members at the London Experience Center and shared information about Amway’s WELL project with Stanford University.
They also sampled the newest flavor of XS energy drinks with XS Vice President David Vanderveen.
Then members joined Doug DeVos at the London Experience Center to learn more about Nutrilite’s new initiative, the Nutrilite Foundational Trio. It’s a simple and easy way to build and maintain a healthy foundation for your body!
Live From London
This year, we sat down with Amway executives and Founders Council members from across the world at our Founders Council Studio.

What’s more exciting than a new product launch? Getting to sample it first! Founders Council members visited the Amway Experience Center in London to sample Artistry’s newest global fragrance Flora Chic.
An important part of Founders Council is the business meeting. This year’s event was held at Old Billingsgate, and it was there that Founders Council members celebrated last year’s success and learned more about Amway’s plans for the future.
After the business meeting, Founders Council members were treated to a James Bond themed dinner, complete with 007 rappelling down the building to save the day.
You can’t have a party without XS! The business meeting dinner also featured a bar made completely of ice and serving drinks made with XS and Truvivity.
Rock And Roll
Iconic British rock music and trapeze entertainment was a huge hit at Tuesday’s dinner, too.
Double Or Nothing
After dinner, Founders Council members were treated to a private casino experience at Old Billingsgate – they all won big!
They also took an exhilarating ride down the River Thames.
And made their own custom fragrance at Design in Scent!
Founders Council members finished their experience with private cooking lessons with French-English two-star Michelin chef Michel Roux Jr. of the London restaurant Le Gavroche.
