As Sandals Resorts enters the final month of its cross-Canada tour of 45 educational workshops that began in May, agents are being reminded there is still limited space available for the September sessions.
Agents are encouraged to register now for the workshops, which are informative in advance of the fall-winter season and will help to elevate their success in selling the luxury-included resorts and to take their sales to the next level.
Agents in Calgary and surrounding areas are encouraged to attend the Sept. 12 workshop which will feature special guests including Tammy Gonzalez, CEO, Unique Vacations, Inc; Gary C. Sadler, Senior VP Sales, Unique Vacations, Inc as well as the soon-to-be-announced new Business Development Manager in Alberta.
During the fast-paced sessions, agents will learn how Sandals’ next level innovations translate into repeat clients and increased commissions. The majority of workshops take place in the morning (7:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.), however there are two afternoon sessions (1 p.m. – 5 p.m.) in Laval and Quebec City and two evening sessions (5 p.m. – 9 p.m.) in Toronto and Ottawa.
The workshops also fulfill the educational requirement towards becoming a Certified Sandals Specialist, as well as the maintenance requirement for agents already holding CSS status. In addition, the Sandals workshops are ACTA-approved. Each agent or manager who completes a workshop receives 10 credits towards their Certified Travel Counsellor or Certified Travel Manager designation.
A non-refundable fee of $40 is required at the time of registration. All participants will receive a workbook, a supply of the newest collateral materials, a certificate upon completion of the workshop and an exclusive booking incentive.
