Formula for Success

Many people working in the tourism industry, as well as in many other industries, have started at entry level positions and been promoted to supervisory/management positions with very little, or no, formal training. They have learned on the job and gained a really good understanding of the day-to-day operations of the business, but never really learned business skills that would greatly increase their chances of being successful in these positions.
Now, more than ever, businesses in the retail, hospitality and tourism industries need to stay competitive. Managers and front line staff should possess business skills, like how to "sell" the products and services offered in their business.
Over the past several years, MTEC has continued to expand our training in all areas, including business skills, HR, leadership and customer service training. Training is customized for owner/operators, managers, supervisors and front line staff. This was a logical decision for us; to assist businesses in the retail and tourism industries remain sustainable by having a well-trained workforce.
The "formula for success" is developing a well-trained, professional workforce. A workforce that understands the importance of selling, to attract new customers and providing exceptional customer service to keep those customers coming back!
MTEC currently offers a full suite of training sessions that teach business skills. A good session to start the new year with is:
DATE: Thursday, January 23
TIME: 9:00am-12:00pm
COST: Complimentary
3-Part Training Series 

This training series provides valuable information for people who are currently working as event planners as well as those who would like to be event planners! Whether full-time or a function of their position, this training can re-enforce what is being done right, and teach things that could avoid liability and/or failure of an event. 

Successful events don't just happen. A successful event is the culmination of planning, preparation and taking care of many details. This 3-Part Series covers everything from the Marketing, Administration, Risk Management and Human Resources involved with coordinating a successful event.  

The next series will be delivered on Friday, January 24th, 6:00pm-9:30pm, Saturday, January 25th, 8:30am to 4:30pm and Sunday, January 26th from 8:30am-4:30pm.
