Travel is a major element of our Ultimate Marketing developmental program. We want our event managers to experience the world and all it has to offer, so we provide an array of travel incentives throughout the year. The more our people explore different places, the more they learn about networking, leadership, and even public speaking skills.
As our event managers attend industry events and retreats, they come into contact with some of the most accomplished experts in our business. By discussing emerging trends and best practices with influential people, our team members build confidence in their communication skills. They also listen to keynote speeches from top leaders, taking cues on how to bolster their own public speaking.
Getting away from the Ultimate Marketing office is also an ideal way to decompress and gain a fresh perspective on work. When we return to the office after a trip, we’re freshly inspired to tackle new challenges. There’s something about being around successful people in a laid-back setting that renews motivation. Our team is a more confident unit thanks to the insights gained at conferences, seminars, and networking events.
Being able to earn their way onto rewarding trips also boosts morale among our team members. There’s always something new to learn, so we invest in our people’s success by putting them in position to soak up knowledge far from home.
We’ll continue to reap the rewards of travel to keep our team on the leading edge of our industry.
