Written by: Amanda Bailey on May 07, 2015
May 1st and 2nd, the KHM Travel Group staff welcomed 25 new travel agents for two full days of comprehensive training at our second Boot Camp live training session of 2015.
Our team lead the group through a series of presentations including a hands-on supplier and commissions booking workshops, marketing essentials and social media strategies.
“It gave me more confidence to actually start booking clients as well as the motivation to continue learning more suppliers,” says Lisa Salazar of Crete, IL.
After lunch on Friday, the agents also got in-depth brand training from Carnival’s Business Development Manager Chris Schutz.
At the end of the first day, our National Training Director Marie Smith and our Agent Trainer Beth Klubnik discussed the importance of choosing a travel niche and the various specialties available to agents.
On day two, our Boot Camp participants got an even more comprehensive look at the sales process, social media applications, and how to keep their agencies compliant.
Between training sessions, agents had the opportunity to network with their peers and get to know KHM Travel staff. They also had the chance to get a professional headshot taken to use in their business materials.
The overall goal of Boot Camp is for each new agent to leave feeling prepared and energized about applying all of skills and knowledge to grow their travel business.
“The information is second to none and the personal touches were awesome. It was worth every dime,” adds Pam Johns of Clinton, MD.
The KHM Travel staff enjoyed getting to meet this enthusiastic group of new agents, and we hope to see them back here for more events in the future!
