Enhance professionalism within the industry through education

In a recently formed collaboration between the Yacht Brokers Association of America and YachtWorld.com, the Yacht Brokerage University education series began last summer in Providence, Rhode Island on July 28th. Series participation is free to Yacht Brokers and Dealers and is intended to enhance the professionalism within the industry through education.
The new educational partnership has helped develop a full day of industry related topics delivered by as many as 9 different speakers. A typical day begins with a breakfast, followed by YachtWorld.com staff presenting the morning session. A live address from London, which includes a Q&A session, by Division Vice-President and General Manager, Ian Atkins kicks off the presentations. Other presenters include Jessica Muffett (Publisher Emeritus), Joe Lingerfelt (Customer Service Manager), John Burnham (Editorial Director) and John Stewart (Brand Manager). Subjects range from the history of YachtWorld.com, upcoming products and services, BoatWizard Tips and Tricks, Social Media’s affect on your business and Internet Marketing.

From Providence, the group set off to Annapolis, Maryland, and then Houston, Texas.  More Yacht Brokerage Universities are scheduled this winter including one location in Florida.
