Professional Development Webinars

Our webinars are low-cost, two-hour video sessions led by an expert in a destination. They are meant to be quick and easy ways to understand the fundamentals of a new destination or professional growth topic to make you look like a pro!

$39 a Pop!

These affordable sessions run for two hours, and are filled with a huge amount of information, and along the way you can ask questions. You’l be able to re-watch the seminar for a limited period after.

New Skills, Logistics and Hidden Gems

These sessions are focused on technology skills and destination logistics. We’re focused on coach parking, walking tour routes, scatter lunch and dinner spots, timings, and addressing the major pitfalls of leading a tour to this destination.

A Perfect Refresher

If you’re new or haven’t led a tour to a city recently, these webinars will run you through everything that’s new and has changed in the destinations, meaning you’ll look like a pro even if it’s been a few years!

The Webinar

  1. The sessions begin promptly at 7pm Eastern Time, which means you should click on the webinar link 10 minutes or so before we begin, so we can troubleshoot any issues you may have. We can’t be held responsible for you arriving late, and having technical issues. We can’t stop the teaching session for one individual person.
  2. You will see the instructor’s face, and a guided slideshow plus interactive maps. We don’t need to see or hear you; you can ask your questions through a chat box. We will have a moderator fielding your questions and asking them to us. We’ll try to get through everyone’s questions!
  3. You should plan to have good enough wifi, equivalent to watching a video online. Again, we can’t be held responsible for you not having an internet connection at the time of the webinar.
