The courtesy program covers categories including supplier negotiations, duty of care, procurement and more
GoldSpring Consulting, a leader in business travel and meetings consulting, announced today it is launching its GoldSpring Master Class™ program for business travel professionals out of work due to the current economic environment. The courtesy program offers deep dives on business travel topics and skill sets including airline and hotel negotiations, duty of care, procurement, technology, TMC contracts, meetings, and even career management and personal brand.
"GoldSpring has an extensive track record of industry participation and education," said Neil Hammond, partner, GoldSpring Consulting. "GoldSpring Master Class is a way we can extend our hand to this exceptional and beloved industry in a true time of need. We hope this is an opportunity for displaced colleagues to continue to learn and hone skills as they seek to reenter the job market."
The courses get to the granular level in areas including airline revenue management, contract modelling evaluation of performance targets and how to convert this into smart negotiating tactics. The first module to launch is a deep dive on airline program management and is now open for registration.
"These courses aren’t your broad stroke webcasts," Hammond said. "We’re giving travel professionals the opportunity to learn from the consultant’s perspective. We are sharing the oft overlooked details buyers and suppliers can be too busy to keep top of mind – hence the need at times for outside consultation. The sessions are in-depth, insightful and impactful so attendees can take what they’ve learned and apply it in their next role."
GoldSpring notes that with many colleagues out of work right now, getting the word out may be a challenge. The firm encourages those who are working and tapped in to share with friends who may not be online or engaged currently. Interested parties can go to the GoldSpring Master Class webpage to learn more and sign up for the complimentary courses.
