Kuoni relaunches Worldwide College agent programme with Maldives workshops

Kuoni has relaunched its popular Worldwide College agent training programme with six events and the chance to win one of six places on a fam trip to the Maldives.

In an announcement, Kuoni said there will be day and evening events in London, Birmingham and Manchester focusing on the Indian Ocean, with up to 300 places available in total. The events will involve workshops on key destinations including the Maldives, Sri Lanka, the Seychelles, Mauritius and Reunion, as well as presentations from Maldives-based Universal Resorts and Mauritius-based Sun Resorts, it added.

Head of Trade Sales Brad Bennetts said the training was being reintroduced after four years following agent demand. As Kuoni wishes to invest in the travel trade, the training programme will be part of that re-engagement journey, he added.

“Worldwide College was one of the most well-established and comprehensive training programmes around, so we’ve taken an opportunity to bring it into the 21st century. We don’t want ‘death by PowerPoint’, so we’ve made these sessions interactive and creative so they’re memorable for agents,” Bennetts was quoted in the announcement as saying.

The first event takes place in Manchester at the King Street Townhouse on July 10, followed by events at Canalside at The Cube in Birmingham on July 20 and The Shard in London on July 31. Interested agents are requested register for a place by emailing their details to agency@kuoni.co.uk.

According to Kuoni, agents will also be asked to take part in a questionnaire on the destination and the top-scoring participant will win a place on the fam trip in September.

The Maldives has on several occasions been named the top destination for Kuoni.
