Happiest of New Years from the entire Travel Professional NEWS team and we hope that your Holiday season was the absolute best! With a New Year comes a fresh start, not only in your calendar but for your business. What goals have you set yourself for 2020?
In our January issue of Travel Professional NEWS, I had the opportunity to sit with Mike Drever, President of BranchUp for a great chat about BranchUp. Did you know that BranchUp is free to Travel Professionals and automates your Social Media marketing? Make sure to check out the information shared and take advantage of the great opportunity.
We are then joined by Michelle Fee, Founder and CEO of Cruise Planners for a great look into their recent 2019 conference onboard the brand new Sky Princess ship from Princess Cruises’. The fun and success of the recent conference comes across from Michelle and congratulations for another record breaking year for Cruise Planners.
We venture to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in Geoff Millar’s latest installment of the Ultimate All Inclusive series while he shares some great insights into the Iberostar resorts. Our good friend Jackie Friedman, President of Nexion Travel Group for 3 great tips on ways to maximize your success in the upcoming Wave season!
The New Year is a great opportunity to evaluate your business, processes and work-life balance. In my article this month, I share a recent experience with time tracking and the power that has come from learning more about where work time is spent and how to maximize its efficiency. I hope you find some use for it and that it helps you find some more productive. Scott Koepf then shares some personal history in his latest Sales with Scott installment and proves a fantastic point in regards to the successfully communicating with your clients and prospects as a Travel Professional.
Thank you for being the best part of Travel Professional NEWS and joining us in this issue! Happy New Year to you!
