What is KHM Travel Group’s Boot Camp Really Like?
Written by: Michelle on December 02, 2019
If you’re an agent with KHM Travel Group or someone who’s been following along with our journey, you’ve probably heard about one of our most popular live events, Boot Camp. Boot Camp is a four-day educational event designed to give agents a jumpstart on mastering the world of booking travel.
We often hear from those agents who attended how Boot Camp boosts their confidence and empowers them to take the next steps in growing their travel businesses. For our team, Boot Camp is also an important part of getting to know our agents on a more personal level and connect with them. We’ve been excited to host our final Boot Camp event of 2019 on November 5-9.
We were lucky to have a small group of our team members join our agents at Boot Camp, so we asked them to share some of their impressions and takeaways.
Paris from our Technology team said that he was impressed by the presentations that our travel suppliers gave, like Carnival’s presentation on their new ship, the Mardi Gras. He also mentioned that the presentations that the Education Team and our supplier partners gave helped him and the attending agents get a better understanding of the destinations and products.
Erin, who is also on our Technology Team, felt that her experience at Boot Camp helped her to better understand the travel industry and our agents.
“I gained a lot of insights into the business and how our agents work and think. I met a lot of great people and learned so much, so I feel like I’m much better prepared to assist our teams and agents.”Erin, Technology Team
Sarah from our Marketing team remarked that she found the last day of Boot Camp particularly empowering.
“I really enjoyed the last day of Boot Camp because it includes a variety of topics such as Compliance, Marketing and a Business Mindset Panel for agents to get all of their questions answered…Every agent that I talked to seemed to be “on fire” for their business, full of inspiration and motivation to be successful!”Sarah, Marketing Team
One of our Membership Specialists, Tiffany shared that for her the most exciting part was watching the way that agents were able to connect with one another.
“Being around the agents, getting to know a lot of them, and forming friendships with them was the best part [for me].”Tiffany, Memberships Team
Joanne, a member of our Group team also attended. Though she has worked in the travel industry for many years, she found great value in this event.
“The knowledge, experience, and expertise that the KHM Travel team provides have to be unique in the host agency community. Until I attended, I didn’t realize the amount of material that’s covered at a Boot Camp.”Joanne, Group Team
Jazmine pointed out that seeing how KHM Travel Group connects with suppliers helped her to understand the benefits that we offer our agents.
“Seeing firsthand the relationship KHM has with suppliers, as well as other people within the travel industry, was great. Boot Camp was an overall amazing experience.”Jazmine, Receptionist
Thank you to the members of our team who attended and shared their experiences and to those team members who organize and present at our Boot Camp events. A big thank you to our travel suppliers as well who attended our Boot Camp events this year and helped our agents get to know your products. Also, thank you to those agents who attended Boot Camp in 2019. We loved getting to know you all and we can’t wait to see what you accomplish in the year to come.
