PADI Go Pro seminar in Khao Lak, Thailand

Yesterday evening there was the first ever PADI Go Pro seminar in Khao Lak, Thailand, conducted by Any Auer, the PADI Regional manager, at PADI 5* IDC  Center 'Sea Dragon'.
As it happened to be, it was also my ever first PADI Go Pro seminar and it hopefully won't be the last one.

We had a good turn out with approximately 15 people showing up, which made us all happy, and we're already looking into a second event, centered around our February 2016 PADI IDC in Khao Lak.

Andy's presentation was received very well and the feedback was that what he talked about was honest and realistic, without the sales pitches that some may have expected.

Working as an instructor in various settings, like in a shop, a resort or on a cruise boat were discussed but also the growth and current market position of PADI were discussed and all of this was laced with some real life experiences from Andy and plenty of interaction with the attendees.

Andy also conducted short interviews with me and Emily, a PADI Instructor working for PADI 5* IDC Center 'Sea Dragon', asking questions how we got involved in diving and why we took our own respective PADI IDC' and what our motivation was.

There were free drinks and some snacks at this PADI Go Pro seminar in Khao Lak, Thailand, so next time when we conduct this seminar again, come and join us, enjoy a few drinks and enjoy an informative and fun evening. If you decide to sign up for one of the professional courses during the evening, we offer some additional incentives and PADI will send you a nice package with some PADI goods in it.

A good evening was had and we are already looking forward to the next PADI Go Pro seminar in Khao Lak, Thailand, somewhere in February. Stay tuned and we will inform you accordingly about our next PADI Go Pro seminar in Khao Lak, Thailand.

In the meantime, if you couldn't attend but are still interested in one of my PADI IDC programs, the last program of this year will start 22nd November in Moalboal in the Philippines, which is followed by the first program of 2016, starting 12th January on Koh Lanta, Thailand and this is followed by a program starting 2nd February on Phuket, Thailand and 20th February will see me back in Khao Lak again.

See you there,
Camille
