    Sales Academy Testimonials

    What particularly attracted me to the course was that unlike other sales management courses, this course had a particular tourism and hospitality focus. My experience so far has been excellent.  I personally find the course very beneficial and commend Fáilte Ireland for the work they have done in putting it all together. The course covers all aspects of tourism sales and in addition to providing the building blocks for developing a strategic sales plan; it has provided me with tools to become a more effective sales manager. 

    The programme is delivered by real experts with proven track records in their respective fields including digital sales, revenue management, B2B sales, MICE sales, leadership and motivation to name but a few of the subjects covered. Another positive aspect of the training is meeting and learning from other industry peers. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

    I attended the Fáilte Ireland Sales Academy Management Programme in association with Cornell University in 2015. I have found it to have been a tremendous benefit for The Limerick Strand Hotel. The expertise of the trainers in their respective fields is exceptional and the link to Cornell is a big plus. The biggest opportunity however, is learning from your colleagues, who are also attending the programme, as we all have great ideas in our own properties that can be adapted for other hotels. I can highly recommend this course to any General Manager or Sales Manager. It will bring a terrific boost to your business as soon as the learnings are implemented back in your property.

    Sean Lally - General Manager, Limerick Strand Hotel

    I attended the Fáilte Ireland/Cornell University Sales Academy in 2015. The course content, trainers, balance and delivery has been really excellent throughout. This course has enabled me to focus on the key aspects of running a successful visitor attraction within a tourism setting. Glasnevin Cemetery Museum is a relative newcomer in the market and our success to date has at times been somewhat overwhelming.

    The opportunity to participate came at a most opportune time allowing me to take stock and analyse our current situation. It encouraged me to focus positively on how to take our business to the next level using constructive and practical methods. These in turn ensure that simple, clear cut goals are employed so that maximum profits for the organisation can be achieved using the most efficient marketing strategies. The one to one sessions and ongoing support from all the trainers has been most reassuring.
