Travel recruitment specialist New Frontiers has launched a a government funded coaching service to help directors of small and medium sized travel companies survive during the recession.
A group of experienced business executives and specialists, who have previously run successful travel companies, have been selected to provide help and advice to directors.
They can provide advice on raising finance, helping prepare a business for sale, improving sales and marketing strategies and other aspects of running a business. Travel businesses can have £1,500-worth of training and receive a refund of £1,000 from the government.
New Frontiers managing director Julia Feuell said: “Directors have a tough job at the best of times and when trading becomes more difficult in a recession, the need to plan, monitor, supervise, motivate and lead their people through the change is even more challenging.
"We are delighted to be able to share our expert team’s knowledge and provide real assistance to travel companies at this time."
Meanwhile, Feuell has merged New Frontiers with her other business, Online Travel Training.
"We have restructured in order to become stronger in the current climate. Recruitment and training are very closely related now and this will save money by putting the overheads into one pot."
