During the second week of October, Teo Brambilla (PADI Regional Manager), Pam Holt (Field Service Coordinator) Su-Li Wong (Consultant, Training and Quality Management) and Amir Khalil (Sales Representative and Product Consultant) conducted a joint trip to Hurghada.
During the week, several meetings were conducted with key accounts in both Hurghada and El Gouna: the aim of these meetings is to provide customized business support in terms of marketing, social networks does and don’ts, training development, PADI continuing Education philosophy and digital training material use/benefits.
A dedicated PADI Pool Party, to introduce Turkish Airlines Staff to Scuba Diving, was conducted by PADI staff as a way to celebrate the great partnership between the two companies in running the PADI DIVE DAY.
The PADI Member Forum took place on the 13th of October and more than 100 PADI Members attended: the presentation was delivered by Teo, Su-Li and Amir as representatives of their departments (Field Service, Training and Quality department and Sales).
The MF covered important topics such as, PADI’s market share in comparison with competitors – as part of the ‘Win with PADI’ value proposition, an overview of the revised OWD course and the exciting ‘ready to be launched’ PADI Freediver Program and a great workshop on the PADI digital products (how to purchase, assign, use …and benefits!)
