Here at RDO we are very excited that this year’s RDO7 Conference starts tomorrow! This promises to be an exciting event packed with inspirational speeches from motivational speakers and business leaders, lively and engaging debates and fantastic networking opportunities, all set in the beautiful Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel & Spa in London, undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest cities.
The theme of this year’s conference is Taking Ownership which given recent challenging economic and political events, couldn’t be more necessary for the travel and timeshare industry. Understandably there are concerns among both individual owners and timeshare companies and organisations. RDO7 Conference will face these issues head on and help provide practical solutions as to how everyone in the industry can work together to overcome these challenges.
Rather than blaming external forces that are outside of our control, RDO7 will help inspire those attending to take back ownership of the success of the industry. One of the main features of timeshare is shared ownership which in turn is one of the industry’s’ greatest assets. Shared ownership means a commitment to shared goals and a desire to help the industry to evolve and thrive.
Through the guidance of the keynote and guest speakers, networking events, and opportunities to share ideas, RDO7 should lead to the strengthening of ties between all interested parties, input from attendees and a plan of action to present a consistent and powerful message that will help successfully sell the timeshare holiday experience.
There is an amazing line up this year of outstanding key-note and guest speakers who will each bring unique knowledge and perspective to their presentations or breakaway sessions. Our three keynote speakers confirmed for this year’s conference are recognized as being some of the top individuals in the industry. They are motivational speaker/consultant and former world champion athlete Kriss Akabusi, professional speaker, bestselling author and performance consultant Simon Hazeldine, and professional motivational and keynote speaker Caspar Berry.
Our guest-speakers include Gareth Dunlop, Andrew Stuart, Thomas Landen, Anthony Reilly, Paul Hardingham, Steve Clarke, John Beckley, Peter Booth, David Gilbert, Gordon Gurnik, Richard McIntosh, Howard C. Nusbaum, Steve Pentland, Robb Webb, Eugene Miskelly, Jose Miguel Enchenagusia, Henry Bankes and Paul Gardner Bougaard. These are all leading figures within the travel, tourism and timeshare industry and each bring a wealth of knowledge and experience which will prove invaluable to anyone attending RDO7.
