Delivery Operations Manual

We’re delighted to announce the release of the latest Delivery Operations Manual for both Premier Sport and Premier Performing Arts.

A new training module will now be developed around this.

Following months of development, a new monthly parent newsletter is set to be distributed to our parent members next week.

We’ve been receiving lots of calls from parents about the forthcoming term, please ensure your course details are uploaded to the BMS ASAP.

Holiday course booking trends – are you disappointing your customers?

Business partners, Dave and Nick Shirley operate a very successful holiday course programme, averaging over 100 children per day over the summer. Why? They have all their courses uploaded to the BMS a whole year in advance. The great news for them is they already have over 30 children booked and paid onto October Half-Term courses.

Are your October Half-Term courses online and available for your parents to book?

Alarmingly across the network, the majority of courses are not uploaded onto the system soon enough!

Your customers need to know availability early so please don’t disappoint them!

Jenno and Glenno’s new Sales Development Workshop for Act Pro’s...

Glenn Hoy of TIME Associates and James Jennison last week presented the new, ‘Sales Development Workshop for Activity Professionals’ and the theme of the workshop was the ‘Magic Matrix’.

‘Although The Magic Matrix is not new to you, it can sometimes be overlooked when considering ways of identifying and selling new services into existing schools’ comments Glenn.

Glenn added; ‘During the session, delegates (pictured) came up with over 40 potential products in just 10 minutes. Not all will be relevant for every school but we are 100% sure that more business from existing clients is more achievable than these Act Pros had ever imagine.’
