SIVB launches Hapi Isles Specialist agents training program
The Solomon Islands Visitors Bureau has launched its first ever specialist agents’ online training program – ‘Hapi Isles Specialists’.
SIVB CEO, Josefa ‘Jo’ Tuamoto said a focus of the program was intended to equip key front like sales staff with product knowledge via a series of online modules designed to help them learn about the Solomon Islands and the nine provinces which make up the country.
“At the same time, they have been designed to instil them with the knowledge-based tools they need to sell the destination with confidence and especially the Solomon Islands’ vast array of niche product,” Mr Tuamoto said.
This includes culture, reef and wreck diving, WWII history, sport fishing, surfing, bird watching with all modules to be expanded as more product comes online.
As part of the launch the NTO is offering agents who successfully complete all training modules by 15 October 2017 automatic entry into a draw to win one of 10 $50 pre-paid Visa cards.
