Business travel workshops announced

Travel Counsellors is to hold nine workshops around the UK for people working in travel jobs to boost their knowledge of business travel.

These will include training on how to win corporate travel accounts and attracting business sales through social media.

Steve Byrne, Travel Counsellors' group managing director, suggested the organisation's share of the business travel market was on the rise.

He said: "Our share of the corporate travel market is growing with a 12% increase in sales year-on-year and 10% increase in new agents joining the company as Business Travel Counsellors in 2011.

"We've seen a 17% increase in corporate travel sales in the first two months of this year alone, and won over 130 new accounts in 2012 so far. As such, we felt it was important to offer dedicated support and training to those agents who want to expand their business to include corporate travel clients.

"All of the new training initiatives announced at our mini-conferences last week are dedicated to providing our agents with the necessary tools, skills and support they require to be successful in business."

The company is also due to hold the annual Business Travel Conference in Birmingham on June 23.
