Welcome to BDM Training by SMP:
Steve Crowhurst CTC,
...the only service of its kind where the entire focus is to help travel trade suppliers boost their sales through their national, retail, independent, home-based and virtual travel agency accounts.
The BDM battle cry is this: IF YOU CAN'T SELL IT
TO THEM - THEY WON'T SELL IT FOR YOU!
This two-liner is the heart and soul of a BDM's role. It means you should be so well versed in your own product, destinations, services, brochures, your website, social media - PLUS it means you have visited your own hotels, flown your own airlines, cruised your own ships, driven your own cars, lazed on the beaches featured in your brochures... AND, you have a marketing mentality and a string of marketing tools to assist your agency accounts in selling YOU! For more information on my programs for BDMs, click here
MANAGEMENT AND SENIOR EXECUTIVE TRAINING
It's been my experience that when it comes to travel trade training & development most of it targets the retail agent - very little is offered to suppliers, and even less to seniori management. To me this means a link in the chain is broken.
The management programs offered by BDM Training will help you develop your leadership skills, sales management & coaching skills, public speaking and presentation skills and one of the most neglected skills sets: managing meetings. You can request private one-on-one training or bring me in to address the management team.
