Conference delegates received an insight into how they can benefit from utilising the tools and technology the company provides to take control of their own businesses and increase their earning potential.
During one of the morning business sessions, Kirsten Hughes, Travel Counsellors’ Commercial Director, told delegates: “To protect your business and earn the margin you deserve, how you buy a product is as important as how you sell it. That’s why, as well as having access to the widest choice of suppliers in the industry, we are dedicated to developing the very best dynamic packaging system, enabling you to take control of what and how you sell, and grow your businesses in an ever competitive commercial market.”
Kirsten showcased how, just by utilising the company’s dynamic packaging system Phenix, agents can still sell the best products at the best prices to their customers, while dramatically increasing their own earning potential.
The conference culminated with a glamorous Gala Dinner and Awards ceremony, a highlight of the Travel Counsellors event.
