Walnut Creek, Ohio -- The Holmes County Lodging Council will host world-renowned consultant Don Farrell, founder of the world's largest training company, July 16-17 at the Carlisle Inn Walnut Creek.
Farrell, who founded Signature, Inc., will teach participants how to convert more phone and walk-in customers into buyers, not just shoppers. This two-day, tactical workshop is loaded with formulas and skill sets needed to make your company more money.
Day one, Workshop Intensive on Phone Reservation Sales & Marketing, is structured for leaders and line staff. Day two, Managing the Sales and Marketing Process for Managers & Owners, is targeted to teach leaders how to drive the process to ensure success. Leaders interested in attending day two must attend the first day, as well.
Here are some highlights of the training:
- Farrell will phone shop all attendee locations and attendees will be given a CD with their shop call to take with them.
- You'll learn why consumers buy AND why the don't.
- Personality Partnering ... Is it more important what you say, or how you say it?
- The Magic Formula ... What do we do and when to get people to buy at a higher price?
Although the training focuses on the hospitality industry, anyone who owns and operates a business where customers enter through the phone or walks in will benefit from this seminar. Don Farrell guarantees it!
