Training Day for Preverisk People and Guests
One of our pioneering activities to excel in delivering our value propositions is to continuously train our team. At the beginning of each year all our Business Managers and key consultants from Mexico, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Turkey, Cape Verde, Morocco, Mauritius and, of course, Spain meet in Palma to celebrate a Managers Convention. This year marked a before and after. As an exclusively internal event focused on sharing market and business knowledge and training, last Tuesday January 14th, a selected group of guests were invited to learn new insights from high-level speakers.
About the Convention’s Training Day
Due to the growth that the company is experiencing and the celebration of our 15th anniversary Preverisk opened its doors to a select audience to offer a unique and unparalleled conference on the Projection of the European H&S Regulations in the tourism sector. The session was conducted by our master of ceremonies and General Manager for Travel Companies, Jonathan Ralph.
