After being with Marriott for over 16 years, the decision to taken a leap of faith and join ConferenceDirect was one that required thought and evaluation. It was important that I join a company that aligned with two of my personal values of integrity and reputation. After researching ConferenceDirect it was very evident that these values were a big part of CD’s foundation.
The other important qualities were would my perspective clients be attracted to what I could now offer them and meet all of their meeting needs? It was clear ConferenceDirect was a full service meeting planning company and I would be able to help my clients achieve all of their goals successfully.
Lastly, being a former educator, I have always placed a very high value on education and training. Establishing that ConferenceDirect placed a strong emphasis on training confirmed I would be well prepared for success. ConferenceDirect has an incredibly passionate trainer who is dedicated to training new and existing associates for success. CD immerses new associates in training first and foremost. The opportunity for continuous training is always present whether through new hire conference calls, the ability to re-visit ConferenceDirect University or the intensive training we receive at our Annual Partner Meeting.
My objectives and requirements were met and the decision to join was made with confidence. A few years in with CD…I honestly feel the sky is the limit!
