St Kitts

Selling Travel - - In The Office - GIL­LIAN YOUNG

1 TELL US ABOUT YOUR ROLE?

I guess you could call me the face of St. Kitts for the trade. I en­sure that agents and front­line sales teams have the tools, knowl­edge and con­fi­dence to sell our beau­ti­ful is­land.

2 HOW DO YOU HELP THE TRADE?

I travel around the UK giv­ing des­ti­na­tion train­ing and host­ing events. It's all about hav­ing a face-to-face con­nec­tion with agents, and re­mind­ing them to con­tact me for any in­for­ma­tion needed to close a sale.

3 IS THERE A TRADE PRO­GRAMME?

Yes - The St. Kitts Spe­cial­ist keeps agents up to date, and the St. Kitts Re­wards of­fers year-round des­ti­na­tion and 'ho­tel bonus' in­cen­tives as a 'thank you' to our agents. We also host fam trips and have a group head­ing out to the is­land this month.

4 WHY SELL ST. KITTS?

It is all about au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ences – rid­ing on the Scenic Rail­way, tak­ing in the in­ter­na­tional cricket ac­tion, pic­nick­ing on the se­cluded beaches and meeting Kit­ti­tians at the lo­cal bars. St. Kitts of­fers these and more.

5 WHAT'S HAP­PEN­ING IN 2019?

An­other busy year lies ahead! We'll be of­fer­ing FAM trips, com­pe­ti­tions, quar­terly in­cen­tives, an up­dated spe­cial­ist pro­gramme and more. Thanks to all the agents who pro­mote and sell St. Kitts.
