A select group of some of the timeshare sales and vacation ownership industry’s top professionals met last week in Deer Valley, Utah. Coming together were corporate vice presidents; regional vice presidents; directors of sales; and project directors—the cream of the crop, one might say, when it comes to timeshare sales and leadership. The group experienced three days of high-intensity training at the Levitin Group’s “Showtime 2012” Leadership Workshop.
The highly respected Levitin Group is an international training and consulting company specializing in timeshare, real estate, and sales process design. The Levitin Group family of companies includes: ePercipio, a software-as-a-service provider that offers a next-generation, internet based education, training and communication platform, and www.TimeshareU.com, the timeshare industry’s first and only online training university.
The attendees at Showtime 2012 shared their expertise and challenged themselves to grow; tackling interactive exercises, role-playing, and competitions developed to enhance their skills to design and lead result-driven, high-impact training sessions.
The Levitin Group includes experts whose methods and philosophies are supported by in-depth research and hands-on experience. Levitin Group training is recognized for producing record levels of success for its client companies.
With most of the attendees already embracing online learning, Showtime provided techniques and psychology for utilizing Levitin Group’s online resources (the ePercipio online learning platform and “Timeshare U,”) to develop additional training, both live and online, to drive sales performance into the future. Shari Levitin, Levitin Group/ePercipio CEO, explains, “Showtime works so well because it combines our curriculum with the talent of the participants; the synergy created defines the Showtime experience. This time, though, I was amazed at the result. The amount and quality of information exchanged was astounding!”
Attendee Terri Cotter, Sales Manager at Grand Lodge at Peak 7, says, “Right from the beginning I could tell this would be huge. I’ve been doing this for years and have received so many takeaways; everything in this seminar is new and fresh. It’s going to be great to take what I’ve learned and put it into practice. I can’t wait to get back to work!”
Beyond the Timeshare Sales and Leadership Training
When they weren’t in class, the attendees at Showtime 2012, enjoyed 5-star accommodations gourmet meals, and a “Wild West” evening at the Blue Sky Ranch, sponsored by RCI. From start to finish, the event was designed to stimulate the senses, forge new friendships, and transform a group of individuals into a collaborative team.
