Hector Montalvo, Managing Director at Source Marketing Direct, believes that many companies are impairing their corporate culture by unnecessarily enforcing strict or minimal travel opportunities.
The outsourced sales and marketing experts regularly find themselves ‘out of the office’, whether its attending a business conference in Australia, on a rewards incentive to Dublin, or public speaking in Cape Town. The firm are huge endorsers of such endeavours, and are keen to promote the benefits of incorporating travel into an organisation’s national and international calendar.
London-based Source Marketing Direct believe business travel has grown to become a highly attractive feature of a potential role at a company – especially amongst millennials.
Managing Director Hector Montalvo, originally from Boston, has already travelled across South Africa and Europe so far in 2017, and will be taking a few lucky individuals from the firm with him back to America in July. This is because Source Marketing Direct will be attending an international sales and marketing rally on July 22nd in New York.
“We always have travel, experiences, and exploration on our minds,” states Managing Director Hector Montalvo. “Going to different places and experiencing different cultures makes us better at what we do, and enhances the services we are able to provide for our clients.”
Although they remain prepared for any upcoming venture, the firm prefer to have an open door policy for their travel schedule. Instead of imposing definite or stringent outlines to their business travel plans, Source Marketing Direct collect feedback from previous trips and include people in any ongoing conversation to ensure that their trips are productive, rewarding, and get better each time.
“Building up a rapport with people from different locations and backgrounds will only enhance your network,” states Managing Director Hector Montalvo.
Source Marketing Direct is a leading customer acquisition company that provides effective sales and marketing solutions for their clients. Managing Director Hector Montalvo and Administrator Linzi Crawford both picked up awards at the annual sales and marketing awards in London recently, and the firm believes that these accolades are partly attributed to staying abreast of emerging trends within the industry via a healthy travel schedule.
