Can Hiring a Travel Management Company help you grow your career?
Richard Branson said, "I learned from an early age the need to delegate responsibility out to other team members as there is just too much for one person to do themselves. What is the point of hiring talented team members if you don't give them the freedom to make the most of the chance you have given them?"
Ah, the endless cycle of knowing you can't do it all, but not knowing how to let go. Even though deep down, we know that being able to delegate is the key to career growth. Maybe you’re a meeting planner with countless details on your shoulders and a lack of reliable resources to help. Or maybe planning travel was never supposed to be part of your role, but it needed to get done and you’re the someone to step in to do it. Saying yes to opportunities will often lead to even more opportunities (or responsibilities). But taking on elements that may be beyond your scope of expertise could actually stunt your career growth if you don’t deliver. Planning meetings and managing travel is fun, but it’s also a complicated business and there are pitfalls at every turn. The good news is that there are experts who can help.
How can a travel management company help you grow your career? It starts with identifying places where an expert can help, and then finding a partner who can provide specific and catered solutions to meet those needs. We know, giving away your Legos can be scary, but do it well and with confidence and you can be assured that your value will rise instead of fall. The reason is because outsourcing for expertise not only works, but it has proven to save time, save money, solve capacity issues and enhance overall service quality. Imagine telling your boss that you just did all of that simply by leveraging an expert to help with your travel!
So… where to begin? Start by finding a partner who cares about your goals as much as you do and is willing to work in the background as a catapult to your individual success. A good travel management company doesn’t replace meeting planners, but instead will empower them. By taking on details like hotel and venue sourcing, contract negotiations, group air management, website builds, attendee registration, onsite event staffing, even a full service end-to-end travel solution, the right travel management company can and will become your best asset.
When you feel comfortable relying on an expert to handle your details, you gain back the opportunity to focus on dreaming up incredible event ideas and fine tuning all of the critical elements to meet and drive your organization's objects, year after year.
