Expertise, training and services focused on revenue management in the passenger transportation industry
Expertise, mobile-friendly e-learning courses, certification and services for revenue management, strategy and best practices focused on air, rail and bus transportation
1. E-learning and certification - Individuals
Interactive webinars with trainer
My interactive webinars have several advantages over what my competitors offer and traditional classroom training. In addition to benefiting from my support, my courses can be taken anywhere and anytime, on an occasional or continuous basis. They provide a solid foundation in revenue management and an introduction to strategies that will contribute to the success of your career and your business.
It is an interesting and very affordable solution, learner-centric and conducive to collaboration, which offers, among other things, online modules to read and listen to, webinars with a trainer, tests and assignments, online resources and a globally recognized certificate, which is mailed. I invite you to go to my clients and partners page.
Self-paced individual study
An even more economical option, my self-paced online learning allows the student to study on their own, with email support. Fifteen modules can be completed in two to three days, or do one module per day, or as slowly as one module per week.
E-learning course on revenue management. $500 USD.

2. E-learning and certification – Corporate or University
I have trained and certified teams for many passenger carriers around the world. Companies win in the long run by taking care of the training and development of their employees. Expenses incurred in the short term allow them to retain skilled and productive workers who will help the company succeed. This is an investment that pays off.
Your employees or students can take the training whenever and wherever they want, at their own pace. They will be grateful. And you won't have to rack your brains to get everyone together in a room or online to deliver a professional, hands-on lesson, which you'll surely appreciate.
My e-learning courses can also be customized and priced based on the requirements of your staff training or university program. I can also design, develop and deliver a learning management platform with your own hardware.
I can offer a consistent delivery, message and content that will particularly appeal to larger organizations, and I remain available to provide ongoing support and coaching.
The Department of Aviation in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology at Swinburne University, Melbourne has been offering my Revenue Management course as part of their ongoing graduate program since 2014.
I can also report on the progress and results of your team or class.

3. Support and consultation
One-on-one online interaction, which I offer as a revenue management expert and data strategist, can be a quick fix for “upgrading” knowledge and skills.
This may include business process assessment and modeling as an essential step in adopting a strategic approach to revenue management and implementing such a system. I can help you, among other things, to:
Understand critical success factors and their key performance indicators;
Design future processes that reflect best practices and streamline operations;
Create business cases with calculated results;
Define pricing strategies and related business rules that are based on departure categories.
I can answer your questions and provide advice in real time, without removing you from your daily responsibilities.
4. Outsourcing and/or co-sourcing of revenue management
Outsourcing can provide increased budget flexibility and control. It allows organizations to pay for only the services they need when they need them. It also reduces the need to recruit and train specialized staff, provides specific expertise, and reduces capital and operating costs.
All items can be tracked remotely and delivered digitally, and we can leverage the reach and savings of outsourcing to provide the ultimate consumer with high-value services at a reduced price. We partner with revenue management system providers to provide a complete solution.
Co-sourcing is another option where revenue management is done by an organization's internal staff and an outside service provider like us. This may consist, for example, of supplementing in-house staff with specialized skills such as expertise in inventory or turnover management systems, data analysis, the commercial application of strategies using the mechanisms of management of revenues and services related to distribution channels, to provide routine support for internal management during peak periods and to carry out special projects to seize opportunities or reduce risks.
