In 2021, we’ll offer several full-day Romance Travel Boot Camps – online!
You can now complete the entire Romance Travel Boot Camp curriculum from your office or home. As long as your computer works and you have coffee nearby, you’re ready to go!
If you’re a “solopreneur” (i.e., you ARE the agency!), taking these classes without traveling anywhere can save you lots of time and money. And, if you have in-house employees or outside agents who need this training during the pandemic, they can devote a single day to learning the basics of romance travel at a very affordable rate.
Leading this course will be DWHSA President Lisa Sheldon! She’s trained thousands of travel advisors in this niche since DWHSA’s founding in 2013. During her 30-year career in the travel industry, Lisa has managed a AAA Travel office and owned her own storefront agency, and today she runs I Do Island Weddings (her home-based travel business) in Janesville, Wis.
We’ll divide the day into 4 90-minute classes, with breaks in between so you can catch your breath and handle client messages.
Plus, we’ll record the four classes and post them in a password-protected site for you for 3 months after the workshop is over – so, you can sign in and go over any parts of the workshop you want to review again.
