18 Sep Nexion Canada Offers Access to Individual Coaching through Nexion’s Multi-Day Educational Events
Value-added option allows travel professionals to further develop in their areas of need
New Orleans, LA (September 18, 2017) – Nexion Canada, the premier host agency for independent travel agents, has continued its commitment to helping its members develop profitable businesses with an expansion of coaching and business development, available through its US-based sister company Nexion. Designed for members at any stage of experience, this program is flexible yet thorough, giving travel professionals the tools they need to sharpen their skills with proven industry experts. The expansion of the program was announced at Nexion’s annual CoNexion conference, being held from September 16-19, 2017, at the Hilton Riverside New Orleans in New Orleans, LA.
“Nexion and Nexion Canada have always attracted and retained members with our superior educational offerings. Our multi-day educational events bring fresh knowledge and perspective to the travel professionals who attend them, but our members are hungry for even more counsel,” explained Mike Foster, CTC, President of Nexion Canada. “The expansion of coaching and business development provides both Canadian and American travel professionals with an even higher degree of individualized attention, tailored to their interests. Our coaches are some of the top minds in the travel world, and we are thrilled to be able to share their knowledge.”
Every Nexion Canada member who attends one of Nexion’s multi-day educational events will receive follow-up coaching. Members meet with their coaches online and via phone to put together a personalized plan with achievable goals and measurable actions. Coaching topics can range from how to grow their sales in a new sector, to getting media attention, to how to write a business plan. The flexibility built into the coaching program provides participants and coaches the freedom to design a curriculum that fits the Nexion Canada member’s unique business needs.
The coaches Nexion Canada members can work with represent a wide variety of travel and business expertise. Depending on their niche, interests, and assessments of areas of growth, Nexion Canada members might choose a coach who is an expert in social media, corporate travel, small business and franchise management, selling cruises, and more. Additionally, Nexion internal staff who serve as coaches are in the process of going through the industry-leading “Sales Acceleration Academy” in order to share their learnings and provide a consistent coaching framework.
Events where coaching has been offered include:
- Corporate CoNexions
- Master Marketing Symposium
- Group Travel Sales Summit
- Agent Essentials Boot Camp
Coaches are chosen from internal Nexion experts, as well as Nexion’s suppliers. This added benefit will also be offered for the upcoming October Group Travel Sales Summit and Romance Travel Sales Summit in Cancún, and the invitation-only Luxury Travel Sales Summit in Santa Barbara, CA, in November.
“As a Canadian travel company with a large sister company, Nexion Canada can give our members something truly unique by partnering with Nexion to bring coaching to our members,” commented Foster. “In addition to our own Canadian events, our members have the option to delve deeply into a topic of their choice—both in a group setting, and individually with an expert. Nexion Canada is thrilled to offer this option to our valued members. By continuing the learning one-on-one, our travel professionals further benefit from their membership in Nexion Canada, and get to develop a relationship with a coach who can provide tangible benefits for their business.”
