Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Are you happy with your business’s performance?
    • A. 

      No.

    • B. 

      Yes.

    • C. 

      Sort of – I don’t really know if or how I could do better.

  • 2. 
    The help & support you receive from your head office and network of colleagues within your brand/group is:
    • A. 

      Outstanding. They’re there when I need them and they listen and act on my needs without fail. My colleagues offer a wealth of unconditional support.

    • B. 

      Average. They don’t really help me, even when I ask, and don’t understand my needs.

    • C. 

      Non existent – I pretty much do my own thing.

  • 3. 
    When you receive your monthly override payment you feel:  
    • A. 

      Confused. It really makes no sense to me and any attempts to find out more have never come to anything.

    • B. 

      Elated. I can go ahead and buy that Porsche now! (Maybe not quite yet, but my earn is way better than last year and I can see what I need to sell more of to earn even more).

    • C. 

      Indifferent. It probably seems about right, maybe.

  • 4. 
    Your marketing people send you the details of the next marketing campaign launching in a few days. What do you do?
    • A. 

      I immediately brief my team. The product is priced and timed well for our market so we get behind the campaign 100% and support it locally.

    • B. 

      Nothing. I take a brief mental note and will check out the details if I get any enquiries.

    • C. 

      It reminds me that my local paper is waiting for our regular ad, so I rush around and get it sorted using my own product, layout and money.

  • 5. 
    Your GDS contract is up for renewal.  What do you do?
    • A. 

      I can rely on my brand’s GM and board to provide unbiased pros & cons of each offer and their recommendation, although ultimately the decision is mine to make for my business.

    • B. 

      I go with my group’s deal. It seems OK and I really don’t have any choice.

    • C. 

      I get a proposal from each of the GDS’s, but there’s not much difference in product or rebates & benefits so I may as well stick with what I’ve got I think?

  • 6. 
    Your sales are down this month and your forward bookings are looking a bit light.  You’re keen to know if it’s just you, so you:  
    • A. 

      Check my results against the monthly benchmarking results for my group and then discuss them with my colleagues on our fortnightly managers conference call.

    • B. 

      Phone a couple of colleagues and/or your head office to see how they’re going.

    • C. 

      Phone a friend for a wine after work – that’s bound to make it better…

  • 7. 
    You’ve just been given the details of your next regional or national meeting or conference. Your immediate thoughts are:      
    • A. 

      Waste of time & money.

    • B. 

      I guess I’ll go along. There are usually some good speakers, although you forget it all pretty quickly once you’re back in the office. Nice to catch up with colleagues.

    • C. 

      It will be great to re-energise and learn some new stuff from my peers. I wonder what we'll be asked to present this time. I want to make sure our presentation is the best and really helps the others.

  • 8. 
    You’ve put together an escorted tour to your favourite destination and you already have 6 pax confirmed on it, but you need at least 6 more to make it profitable.  What do you do?
    • A. 

      I’ve never done an escorted tour and wouldn’t know where to start. Too hard.

    • B. 

      I advertise the tour locally, hold a customer information evening and send an email out to the other stores in my group asking them for help to sell it.

    • C. 

      I send the tour details off to be loaded on all of my brand’s store websites and E-newsletters. I also post up a quick “sales pitch” on our interactive facebook-style intranet so all the staff around the country are motivated to sell my tour.
