Transat Distribution Canada announces Power Planning Sessions for its Ontario Members

Toronto, March 01, 2012

TDC has announced Power Planning Sessions for its Ontario Members that will help them formulate innovative ways to build their business. The sessions were created with the input of the team and several of the key TDC suppliers including Transat Holidays, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Contiki, Uniworld Cruises and Transat Travel Insurance.

“These exclusive sessions have been put into play to help build the business of our members. The financial health of our network is the number one priority of TDC,” said Rita Polegri, Director Operations and Member Services, Ontario and Atlantic Canada.

She adds, “We have to be innovative in building our business; we have to plan ahead and not wait for clients to walk through the door. It’s time to step back and take advantage of the business building tools that are available to our members through our preferred partners.”

The Power Planning sessions are unique to TDC Ontario. They will be held in several cities throughout the end of March and beginning of April. TDC’s intention is to share a couple of hours with its members and preferred suppliers and have everyone leave with a clear plan on how to capitalize on growing your business.

“There is a clear value in a coming of minds. The real value in these sessions will not be how to write a business plan, but how to execute on the plans in a concise, systematic way. The act of planning helps you to stop, organize and execute. Our goal has never strayed off course. Simply put, we want our members to continue to be successful and we are here to help them toward that goal.” Summarizes Polegri.

Registrations for the Power Planning sessions will be sent out to the membership shortly. Each session is expected to bring together members from Marlin Travel, TravelPlus and the TDC affiliate agencies.
