After a busy ten months working on a major Food Campaign, sales and marketing firm Precisions Acquisitions Direct recently travelled to Tenerife, for some well overdue R&R.
On the 13th of October, London-based Precision Acquisitions Direct flew out to a luxury resort in Tenerife for a unique R&R break. The trip, which was organised by some of the industry’s most respected and experienced consultants, brought together sales and marketing professionals from all across the UK, for four days of networking and strategic discussion. However, as well as being a business trip, the Tenerife R&R also offered guests the opportunity to socialise, relax and take in the beautiful surroundings of Spain’s Guia De Isora region.
The firm stayed at the Gran Melia Palacio de Isora Resort – a five-star resort situated on Tenerife’s iconic black sand shoreline. The Resort offers a unique experience, superior quality service and award winning facilities such as a Spa and Health Club with treatments developed exclusively by Clarins Laboratories. The resort is also home to a number of private swimming pools with on-site bar facilities and a wide range of sporting activities.
Joining Managing Director Alexander Mandich on the trip were the firm’s top performing contractors, who Precision Acquisition Direct were keen to reward for their hard work over the last few months. The all-expenses paid trip was not only a great opportunity for these individuals to network with and learn from industry experts, but was also a chance for them to hone their professional skill sets. Precision Acquisitions Direct believe that travel can be an effective crash course in the skills needed for professional success and that the experience of travel can help shape an individuals into highly capable entrepreneurs. However, the firm believes it to be important for professionals to make the most out of travel opportunities and use their time wisely while away. To ensure their contractors returned to London with new transferrable skills and an increased knowledge of the industry, Precision Acquisitions Direct offered the following advice:
There Are Only So Many Hours in a Day
Travelling offers people a lot of free time. It may be tempting to fill this time with a Netflix binge, or browsing social media, However, to get the most out of the travel experience it’s a good idea to put this time to better use. Making an effort to speak to as many new people as possible can be a great way of passing the time, and it can also lead to significant new business relationships.
Create a List
When travelling for business, there are always so many people to meet and interact with. So many in fact, that often a professional will realise on their return that they missed out on connecting with a particularly influential or knowledgeable individual while doing the rounds. Writing down a list of all the people they want to talk to before travelling will offer professionals a constant reminder and plan of action when networking, and help them to make the most of the experience.
