Baby Boomers – The Ultimate Upgrade? via Lisa Migani and Peter Robinson

These days, retirement or semi-retirement no longer means the end is near. Instead, while it does mean a reduction in or end to working life, many retirees are now able to enjoy a further 20-30 more years of life ahead of them. Increasingly this has become another fulfilling life chapter in which greater numbers of people are remaining active and taking full advantage of the extra time they have without the need to work. Due to improvements in levels of healthcare, age expectancies are increasing, meaning a greater ability for retirees or semi-retirees to enjoy active lifestyles, filled with travel and...

It’s All About the People via Hassan Kadbi – CEO, Hapimag AG

At each RDO Conference, there are a variety of diverse speakers chosen from many different walks of life, creating an eclectic and inspirational mix of presentations to inspire and motivate attendees. In fact, no two presentations are the same, meaning that the conference audience never quite knows what to expect, so things never get stale or boring. Sometimes speakers give specific tips and advice and other times there is a more generalised speech with the aim of inspiring and changing dated ways of thinking. At RDO8 conference at the Don Carlos Leisure Resort & Spa, Hassan Kadbi, who has been CEO...

Selling Travel Experiences Online – How to Get 6% More via Daniel Bensley – Business Development Manager, Qubit

What motivates individuals to take certain economic decisions rather than another? This is a concept that has long been studied and analysed by companies, their marketing teams and individual marketing experts. When people decide to buy one product rather than another, there are many different factors that lead to that decision, some of which are logically based and many which are based on emotions. In fact, in many ways humans are highly illogical creatures, despite what many of us would like to believe. This is what has made marketing, up until very recently seem so inexact and often very hit...

Stretchy Thinking – How to Engage Your Staff to Strengthen Your Business via Rebecca Jones

There are so many people with great ideas for creating their own business, or alternatively how to improve the way the company they work at operates. In fact, given the right circumstances and encouragement almost everyone has creativity and innovate ideas inside of them, just waiting to be unleashed. The problem is the system that so many of us grew up in and then live in later in life, does not encourage thinking outside the box, or doing things differently. Too many of us are also held back by worrying what others think of us and how they may judge...

Purpose Beyond Profit via Geoffrey Breeze – Executive Director, World Travel & Tourism Council

While many might consider the Travel & Tourism industry as somewhat trivial and not necessarily providing anything more than simple enjoyment in people’s lives, this mindset significantly misses the mark. In fact this sector of the economy is one of the most significant in the world “supporting 292 million jobs and generating 10.2% of global GDP.” The positive impact of this industry goes far beyond economic benefits though, with those working in tourism helping to share cultures and build mutual understanding, ultimately leading to a more peaceful world. The UN declared 2017 the International Year of Sustainable Tourism, with conditions of...

Dominate Future Markets Using Accurate Opinion Data via Freddie Herbst – Commercial Director, BrandsEye

In today’s world, with the huge growth in digital technology and reliance on the internet in our lives, companies are engaged in gathering data about people more than ever. As people increasingly share aspects of their lives via social media networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more, there is a growing stream of information available to brands about what matters to people. This data is extremely important as it can be used to make predictions about future buying habits, improvements to sales processes and ultimately be used to increase profitability. In the past brands would have to rely solely on more...

Anyone can be a Superhero via Jamie McDonald – Adventureman, Author and International Motivational Speaker

If someone asked you to think of a superhero, what would probably spring to mind are characters like Superman, Spiderman or countless other comic-book heroes who are able to save the world with their special powers. What Jamie McDonald proved though, is that even normal, ordinary people can do extraordinary things, it doesn’t just have to be limited to fiction. @MrJamieMcDonald finding the superhero within #RDO8 pic.twitter.com/fyaR5X1qud— RDO Official (@rdoofficial) September 12, 2017 Jamie’s presentation at RDO8 at the Don Carlos Leisure Resort & Spa was incredibly inspirational, motivational and very moving, with those in the audience literally having to hold back...

Change is Inevitable – Growth is Optional via Nigel Risner – Professional Motivational & Business Speaker

One of the only inevitabilities in both the business world and life in general is change. This is not something to be discouraged or alarmed by, but instead viewed as an opportunity for improvement and growth. It should also definitely not be taken taken lightly by business leaders though, because the consequences of becoming complacent can put a serious dent in profitability, even leading to the demise of a brand. Make sure you and your business are trusted Because once lost it is never the same #leadership #trust pic.twitter.com/haKFKUZMoM— Nigel Risner (@Nigelrisner) September 28, 2017 To see how much things have...

Upping Your Elvis via Chris Baréz-Brown – Professional Motivational Speaker and Author

Do you truly love your life and everything that you do, or are you simply going through the motions and existing on auto-pilot? Unfortunately, too many of us say we want to improve parts, or even all of our lives, but when it comes to actually doing something different we are either too afraid or too lazy. Instead we settle for the hum-drum and continue doing things as we always have. When you keep doing the same thing, you simply cannot expect different results. What so often happens within the world of work as well as many other aspects of...
