Timeshare News


An international sales training firm is now offering online “Train the Trainer” webinars aimed at managers and team leaders within the timeshare industry. Levitin Group, based in Park City, Utah, wants the webinars to help team leaders provide sales training to their firm’s sales people, managers and marketers. “In other words,” the firm noted in its release, “the webinars teach managers and trainers how to train their team using the Levitin Group Online Academy Courses.” There are now five webinars available, which range in length from 60 to 90 minutes each. Webinar #1 is available Dec. 14. The remaining four webinars will be held Jan. 4, 11, 18 and 25. A number of companies have already signed up to participate, including Bluegreen, Emirates Vacation Club, RCI, Pestana Hotels and Resorts, Hilton Grand Vacations, Raintree Resorts International, The Berkley Group, Grand Lodge, Vida Vacation Club, SilverPointe Properties, and Cranberry Waterfront Suites and Country Club, Club Melia and Festiva Resorts.

Individuals who graduate from the five webinars will be given a license to access Levitin Group’s Online Academy and the authority to order Online Academy courses. Graduates of the webinar will also be authorized to offer their services as a Levitin Group-certified course facilitator. Registration can be found at Timeshare U, the timeshare industry’s first and only online training university.

The webinars and Timeshare U are the brainchild of Levitin Group President and CEO Shari Levitin, who has worked in the timeshare/real estate industry since 1984. Levitin’s background includes being Marriott Vacation Ownership’s top salesperson. Levitin is a trustee member of the American Resort Development Association and currently serves on that trade organization’s Meetings Committee.
She founded Levitin Group in 1997, and since that time, has provided sales training services to national and international timeshare-related companies.

 “When I first launched Levitin Group, our goal was to establish the global training standard in the resort hospitality industry by providing innovative systems, content and expertise,” she said. “I’m delighted to report that we’ve accomplished this lofty goal -- and more. The webinars we’re now offering are specifically designed to help build sales and the bottom line for developers and managers in the timeshare industry. The webinars’ content is the result of Levitin Group’s years of experience in this highly specialized arena.”
The cost to register for the Levitin Group Online Academy facilitator training course is $5,990. For more information call 888-242-7775. Outside of the U.S., call 435-649-0003. Timeshare U was launched in September 2011. Levitin Group is an international training and consulting company specializing in timeshare, real estate and sales process design.
