Team Building & TD Training!
Last week, the Xplor, Inc. team gathered for a day and a half of training and team building. We started on Thursday after lunch with a training about a day in the life of a travel director, from Jodi and Courtney. Both have participated in many trips and conferences over the years, so they had a lot of knowledge and experience to share with the rest of the team. They started by covering the expectations for a travel director, from flights to the responsibilities onsite to post trip follow up. The overall takeaways were to always be over-prepared, ready for anything to happen, and to think three steps ahead at all times. It is always important to remain calm no matter the situation and be kind to everyone around you, including clients and hotel staff.
After the training concluded, the team headed over to Motorworks for a drink and then walked over to the Bradenton Marauders stadium. We had suite tickets and all sat outside while eating dinner and watching the game.
Friday included more travel director training with Jodi and Courtney, followed by Anju’s birthday celebrations! The team went to Caddy’s in Bradenton for a few drinks, then over to Chateau 13 for dinner.
The whole team had fun hanging out with each other and learning more about how to be WOW travel directors!
