Digital leadership – getting off the back foot to win online via Gareth Dunlop

Like it or not, the digital revolution is here to stay and is only likely to increase and intensify in the coming months, years and decades. This includes social media, review websites, live video streaming, online influencer marketing, and augmented and virtual reality. Since the beginning of human history, people have had an intrinsic need to communicate and share information because we are inherently social animals. While this feature of humanity has not changed, the internet has dramatically intensified the possibilities for this. Social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have provided an amazing platform in which individuals,...

A look back at RDO7 conference 2016 – Taking Ownership

This year’s RDO7 conference 2016 was a huge success with inspirational speakers and presentations, many excellent connections created, and overall a wonderful time had by all the delegates that attended. We once again returned to the beautiful Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel and Spa in London where RDO5 was held two years ago. Both the hotel and London provided an excellent setting for RDO7, as the focus of this year’s conference was very much on looking towards the future. London is a city which perfectly exemplifies this feeling, as it is constantly innovating, improving and developing. In the short space of two...

Why your resort must adapt to remain relevant in today’s digital world via Gareth Dunlop and Thomas Landen

There are few industries that have been impacted so highly by modern technology, the internet, and the dramatic digital transformation that has occurred in the last decade as the travel and tourism sector. Without a doubt, this has had and will continue to have, substantial effects on the timeshare industry, and adapting to the changes taking place are more important than ever. Those businesses that are able to adapt are much more likely to survive and thrive, whereas companies that decide to stick their head in the sand and ignore what is happening all around are destined for failure. If there...

Dream big – take action – play with those who turn up via Kriss Akabusi

The theme of RDO7 Conference 2016 was Taking Ownership, an extremely important concept to follow in these recent times of uncertainty. There have been huge upheavals lately in terms of the international economy and socio-economic climate. This in turn has had profound effects on international travel and tourism, with travellers and tourists now much more careful about where they decide to spend their important vacation time. Added to this has been the effects of a massive digital transformation in terms of the speed and reliability of the internet, increasing use of social media, online booking and sites such as Tripadvisor...

The world is becoming an increasingly uncertain place with huge changes in terms of the global economy, political climate and international stability.

How to Raise Your Sales Game via Simon Hazeldine – Professional Speaker, Bestselling Author, Performance Consultant

In the last few years the world has altered dramatically in terms of the economy, society, technology and business. This in turn has lead to significant and continuing changes in the world of sales. To keep using the same techniques that may have been successful decades ago, in today’s reality of different buyer needs, knowledge and expectation, is becoming increasingly ineffective and ultimately bad for business. Considering all of the changes that have resulted in this challenging new reality that we now live in, you are probably wondering what it takes to achieve exceptional sales performance. At the recent RDO7 Conference...

Cruising sets sail towards younger clients: lessons for timeshare via Andrew Stuart – President & COO, Norwegian Cruise Line

If someone asked you about your perception of the cruise industry, certain thoughts might jump to mind, many of which are not particularly positive. These ideas might include substandard entertainment, tired interiors, uninspiring catering, and an aging demographic of guests on board. When Andrew Stuart, the President and Chief Operating Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line took the helm of the company in March 2015, this was exactly the problem he faced. Almost all of the perceptions that people had about the cruise industry were true when Andrew took charge, so he set about changing this situation in order to attract...
