ACTA will be celebrating Travel Advisor Month in May with Business Building workshops and a Wellness Challenge.

The online events are sponsored by Princess Resorts, the Jamaica Tourist Board and Air Canada.

Business Building Workshops are set for:

May 1 at 11 am EDT- Turbulence to Triumph

Turning stress and anxiety into profitable opportunities. Uncertainty, stress, and anxiety are typically unwelcomed. In this talk, we will learn about the untold story that our anxiety wants to share and learn to turn it into a welcomed and profitable outcome. 

May 1 at 1:30 pm EDT – Delegation: The Art of Delegating Effectively

Empower yourself as a travel professional by mastering the skill of delegation. Learn how to effectively assign tasks, streamline processes, and leverage the strengths of your team to maximize productivity and achieve your goals efficiently.

May 28 at 11 am EDT – Troubles into Treasures: Turning our most challenging clients into our biggest fans

Some clients drain our energies and resources so much we’d be happy to lose them and never hear from them again. However, what if there is a way to turn these clients into your happiest ones that will not only do repeat business, but will likely like you so much they refer you to their network?

May 28 at 1:30 pm EDT – Navigating Emotions: Building Emotional Intelligence for Travel Professionals

Unlock the power of Emotional Intelligence (EI) and its critical relevance in the workplace. This course aims to define EI and delve into its significance within professional settings, equipping participants with the insights needed to grasp its importance and apply it effectively.
