Written by: Amanda Bailey on November 18, 2016
As we prepare for our 2017 Crystal Conference and Awards on the Conquest, there’s one BDM all agents should get to know. That’s Chris Schutz, our friendly Carnival Cruise Line BDM!
Chris is always enthusiastic about working with travel agents and sharing her knowledge of Carnival to help them grow there businesses.
She’s been passionate about the cruising since the beginning of her career, when she worked at Kingdom Tours, a small tour operator in northeastern Pennsylvania. After that, she gained more experience working at one of the first online cruise-only agencies.
Chris says she loves that KHM Travel Agents share her enthusiasm for learning as much as possible to become experts in their field.
“They are always excited to learn what it takes to grow their business,” Chris says. “KHM and Carnival Cruise Line have an amazing partnership!”
Carnival works with our staff to provide agents access to a variety of educational opportunities like webinars, in-house trainings, ship inspections and lunches, and seminars at sea. She also appreciates that KHM Travel encourages its agents to look to their BDMs as a valuable brand resource.
Chris knows that knowledge is the key to confidently selling any kind of travel to clients. Carnival takes pride in offering a great value and memorable experiences for everyone.
“Carnival loves KHM Travel Agents,” says Chris. “We truly know that together, we’re better!”
Chris adds that Carnival offers many tools to ensure agents can close the sale. Current KHM Travel Agents can learn more about our partnership with Carnival Cruise Line in their Portal, and see our free marketing resources for Carnival here.
Chris will also be on our 2017 Crystal Conference and Awards cruise in January, along with Carnival’s Vice President of US Field Sales Mike Julius and Divisional Vice President for Trade Sales, Justin French. The Carnival team is looking forward to meeting many of our agents during our largest event to date!
