11:30 am-12:30 pm  Human Service Interaction in the Age of Technology

Technology is trending toward mobile and online registrations and perhaps making the guest experience less personal. But for timeshare resorts, it’s all about human interaction, making a great first (and last) impression and creating a lasting bond with owners and potential owners, not only to generate tour flow for the sales department but also to encourage great reviews. Making a guest feel welcome starts with training and with hiring the right people. A strong front desk can also be a revenue generator when it comes to upselling and selling of activities. How does technology meet these needs and how do we balance guest expectations of speed and convenience with personal interaction?

1:30 pm-2:00 pm  State of the Shared Vacation Ownership Industry 

Research is one of the strongest tools our industry has at its disposal. Whether planning a new resort, developing new marketing programs, communicating with the media, training new employees, reaching out to Wall Street or the financial and investment communities, educating legislators or communicating with timeshare owners and potential owners - information gleaned from research can make it easier to achieve your company business goals. Be among the first to learn key results from the most current industry and related research.

2:00 pm-4:00 pm   Trust Driven Relationships & Teams

Trust can only be built when companies & individuals commit to doing business right. To build trust, companies need to look beyond the bottom line & individuals need to develop, restore & extend trust to accomplish sustainable results with internal & external guests/customers. Trust & Transparency foundations help individual & leaders to increase their credibility & capability. When trust is high we reap the dividends of communication, creativity & engagement. Therefore, trust is a key leadership competency of the current business era. In this workshop, experience behaviors that will increase your credibility through results, capabilities, intent & integrity.
