MTravel Renews Jump Start Live! Professional Development Event
Second round of new program to launch fall 2017
Montrose, CA, September 20th, 2017– – fter a successful pilot run of their new in-person educational program for novice independent travel professionals, MTravel will bring back “Jump Start LIVE!” for round two in October 2017. The immersive three-day event teaches beginner agents key business fundamentals to get their travel agency up and running in the quickest timeframe possible. The bootcamp-style event will feature interactive workshops, live demos and networking events with MTravel staff and preferred suppliers.
Building on Success
The live program builds on MTravel’s award-winning Jump Start training series of proprietary professional development targeting new agents. As the series grew in popularity, the need for a live event arose to support those who learn better in person and to take learning beyong the absolute essentials by including peer and supplier networking. . Positive response from the inaugural attendees prompted MTravel to launch a second series for the Fall. The intent is to offer the program twice a year.
“The interaction with the team and peers was excellent. It was good to know that my peers wanted to learn as much as I did and that the Montrose Travel team really cares about us being successful,” said Ebonee Summerour, owner of ELS Special Events. Attendees also valued connecting with the host agency support team face-to-face. “Everyone goes above and beyond for our success,” said Sheena Dersidan of IAMSHEGLOBAL. “It only reconfirmed that I made the right decision in joining MTravel.”
