PADI has a new opportunity for a Regional Manager to join the PADI Asia Pacific team.
Based in Mainland China, you will provide local support for PADI’s Mandarin speaking Members for Sales and Marketing, Customer Service, training consultation, and promote PADI education system and philosophy.
You must have minimum PADI IDC Staff Instructor rating with PADI Course Director preferred.
If attracting more divers to sign up for PADI professional level courses is in your business plan for 2015 then why not run a PADI ‘Go Pro’ event with your Regional Manager?
Many people decide even before they learn to dive that this is the path for them however some divers may need some further information to know what their options are and also what opportunities await them as PADI Professionals.
Conducting a Go Pro event enables you to invite potentially interested parties along for a relaxed and informative evening. Your Regional Manager can assist with the presentation and provide information about the PADI benefits for members.
Involving previous students currently working in the industry both part-time and full-time by inviting them to come along to be interviewed live or via Skype is also a fantastic way to encourage divers to sign up, and gives more opportunity for questions to be answered
These events can be for divers of any level and you can promote anything from the PADI Divemaster programme up to and including the PADI Instructor Specialties and IDC Staff Instructor if your facility can offer these programmes.
For more information on conducting one of these events contact your PADI Regional Manager.
Aside from utilising your website, social media channels, store signage and most importantly word of mouth, expos are a great way to get exposure. Exhibitions related to your business may include dive festivals, boating shows or career expos. Participating in these can be highly beneficial to the growth and success of your business.
Career expos are an excellent way of letting people know at a young age that a career in diving is a realistic and exciting option while giving those who already know they want to ‘live the dream’ information on how they can make it happen. By engaging with these new or potential divers, you can utilise your industry knowledge and advise them on good subjects to take at school, what’s involved in becoming a PADI dive professional and the amazing career options available all over the world! For potential divers, you can even invite them to give diving a try using the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience.
Organising your participation at an exhibition is easy however it is important to make your booth stand out from the crowd! A TV screen on your table with PADI’s Go Dive and Go Pro videos on a loop can capture the attention and interest of the crowds who may watch and remain at your booth for a few minutes. This opens up a great opportunity to engage and start a conversation.
At a careers expo, you can also make your booth more attractive with colourful PADI posters, banners and information brochures that can attract teachers, students and parents alike.
Dive HQ Albany recently participated in a School Careers Expo on New Zealand’s North Shore where over a 2 day period more than 5000 people had the opportunity to talk about learning to dive and careers in diving.
For further information, advice or assistance with participating in an exhibition, please contact your local PADI Regional Manager who would be more than happy to help.
