"Confidence that I, not the economic situation, will control my future bookings. (I've been through economic downturns before, but never hit this hard. After being at 150% of my goal last year, and very behind this year, I needed some inspiration and new ideas!)"

The cost for Training Bytes is $89 per person per module and includes a complimentary subscription to ResultsWOW Sales and Customer Service, our monthly email newsletter dealing with hotel sales and customer service and email access following the presentation to the presenter, Carol Verret, to ask questions and get a personalized response.

"The hotel industry is struggling with a soft market and trying to control expenses. Often, training is among the first items to be cut. Training Bytes allows managers to provide sales training for their staff without the expense of air travel and hotel," says Verret, President of the company.

"The good news is that my department heads, who are instrumental in any success we do enjoy are hooked on you, your news letter and your wisdom."

Training Bytes does not replace on site seminars but it allows sales people to fill in the gaps in their skill sets and acquire new skills in specific areas. For example, when a new sales manager is hired, they usually have to wait for training until a seminar is scheduled. By choosing specific modules of Training Bytes, they can get a head start until they can attend a more intensive, live seminar.

"I often get calls and emails from new sales people wanting to know if I offer public seminars so that they can get some training." Training Bytes fills this need.
