DATES AND FORMAT
This unique and exiting SI-Agents Training – Seminar is to be held from October 16 to October 18, 2016 in Sochi, at the new luxury landmark hotel ‘Hyatt Regency Sochi’ which is ideally located in the heart of the city (15/17, Ordzhonikidze street, Sochi, 354000, Russia). After the SI-Agents Training – Seminar all participants will have possibility to make presentations at SI cities in Russia and Ukraine. Details of the presentations will come below in this proposal.
The idea of the 9th SI-Agents Training – Seminar is in-depth education of all SI-Agents and SI-Representatives about our partner schools and their programs. This Seminar is designed to raise the agents’ awareness of your educational institution and consequently improve the sales of your product. In the course of productive discussions we will work out an effective strategy on how to sell your product in the local market and improve our cooperation in terms of admission and visa issues.
We are going to adhere to the format which has proved itself to be effective many times: agents will be divided into 3 working teams (about 15-20 SI specialists in each) to facilitate the interaction between presenters and listeners. Each seminar-training is going to be 30 minutes long, including questions and answers session. An experienced SI staff will be assisting you during the seminar-training: interpreting, specifying the main selling points, or explaining difficult concepts. Presenters are responsible for supplying a Power Point presentation and marketing materials for distribution during the seminar-training.
Students International is planning to invite representatives of foreign trade missions and visa department staff from New Zealand, Australia, USA, Canada, Malta and UK Embassies. There will be also other opportunities for partner institutions to meet SI-agents and SI-specialists in the course of the event and answer further questions about the programs. More than 90 Education Abroad Specialists had already confirmed their participation in SI-Agents Seminar this year. We are planning common lunches and dinners, both in Hyatt Regency Sochi or famous Sochi restaurants, as well as joint entertainment program for participants of the event.
The best-performing SI-Agents and SI-Offices, as well as the most efficient SI-Specialists, will be awarded at the Gala Dinner. We would really appreciate if you could offer your own prize or award, or let us know the most prolific SI office (where most of your Russian students come from) or SI sales person you wish to specially complement.
