Brought to you by Scuba Diving International™ and Technical Diving International™
Our business is developing yours. That is the driving mission assigned to all departments tasked with Business Development for Scuba Diving International™ and Technical Diving International™. This group of innovative, forward looking diver education professionals fully recognizes the path to sustainable growth means assisting its current members to meet their goals and aspirations.
In light of changes in the financial outlook, you will notice a whole new level of focus and attention given to business education and services by our family of agencies. We feel this shift is part of our maturation as a company and our continued commitment to customer service and satisfaction.
While many put emphasis and pound the drum for constant growth through your entry level classes, our take on growing your profits is not as short-sighted. You know that retaining the customers you already have acquired is equally, if not more important to your long term success. Continued success in business, in challenging economic times, requires you to retain existing customers and also focus on innovative ways to recruit and motivate new divers. Think of it as a double edge sword that must be regularly sharpened; in this case the edges are retention and recruitment, and helping to keep it sharp is our job.
Having discussed the need for ongoing business assistance with our members and staff we have instituted a program to help you in the day to day challenges of running your business.
