With just over a week to go to this year’s Conference RDO6 “Embracing Change” in Marbella, it hardly seems possible that a whole year has flown by since we all gathered for 2014’s “must not miss” European timeshare conference of the year.
Moderated by Robin Mills, Chairman of RDO’s Communications Council, the RDO6 business sessions will cover a diversity of topics from the growth of the “sharing economy” and the changing needs of the 21st century traveller to the aftermath of the Spanish Supreme Court ruling on the ANFI case.
Following the introduction of special rates this year to attract younger employees of RDO members, one of the sessions will address these young professionals directly to understand what they think and what turns them on or off. Also for the first time, delegates will have the opportunity to hear from owners about their own personal journeys in timeshare.
Top business motivator Michael Jackson will kick things off with a thought-provoking presentation, “Embracing Change: 20:20 Vision for the Road Ahead”. Michael, who has worked with Richard Branson and Bill Gates, has advised many of the world’s foremost brands across broad sectors, from Microsoft and HP to Qatar Airways.
Richard Newman, Director, UK Body Talk, will be sharpening our influential skills, showing us how to really “Walk The Talk” and influence people. Featured on BBC Radio, Channel 5 News, The Daily Telegraph and Forbes Magazine, he is one of Europe’s foremost experts on the art of persuasion.
Joining them will be Debbie Wosskow, founder and CEO of the world’s largest home exchange club, Love Home Swap, one of Britain’s top experts on shared ownership and the sharing economy, while Dr. Wouter Geerts, Travel Analyst (Lodging) at Euromonitor will be giving us a rare and fascinating insight into travel trends and how consumer demands are changing.
Guy Browning, who’s been dubbed the “David Attenborough of the business jungle” will show us how to tap into our intelligence, initiative and imagination to tackle key business issues in fresh, creative and much more effective ways.
Following feedback from last year’s conference, we have made some changes to the program schedule to create time for more networking without the need to miss any of the business sessions.
With a new format, engaging business sessions, excellent social events and great value delegate rates, RDO6 is set to be a must attend event.
Sponsors confirmed for this year include CLC World Resorts & Hotels, Diamond Resorts International, Holiday Club Resorts Oy, Interval International and RCI, as Platinum Sponsors and Dial An Exchange, Generator Systems and Shawbrook Bank as Gold Sponsors.
