Vietnam is a Fast Growing High-end Holiday Destination for discerning British Travelers

Vietnam-based Luxury Travel will join the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) in October to promote luxury travel products

Hanoi, Vietnam, October 31, 2012 - Vietnam-based Luxury Travel (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) will join the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) in October to promote luxury travel products at World Travel Market London 2012 (WTM) in the UK from November 5 to 8. STAND AS480

According to Pham Ha, founder of Luxury Travel, the UK has been a great market for the company, which has appealing products for Britons’ tastes and preferences. “We target the right clients with personalized products and services.” said Ha.

He also noted that the company had increased the number of private small groups that it served, primarily with tailor-made holidays. “British holidaymakers like custom and private tours, not big groups. The boom in demand suggests that holidaymakers are becoming increasingly canny and watching exchange rates as well as seeking out keenly-priced packages before deciding on their destination.” he said.

Britain’s tourists, according to Ha, picked Vietnam for their vacations for safety, affordable prices, authenticity, warm weather, and convenient direct flights.

McKissock Highlights Five Things Home Inspectors Must do to Stay Working

McKissock Offers Continuing Education for Home Inspectors

Warren, PA, October 30, 2012 - McKissock, a leader in continuing education for real estate-related professionals, has outlined five ways to keep home inspectors on the job. Rookies and veterans alike have the same things to consider as the industry changes; this list is applicable for anyone who needs to keep their income flowing. McKissock is a trusted resource for state-specific, state-approved home inspection courses, regulation information and compliance.

The following tips are important home inspector requirements:

1. Don’t Compromise Safety. Although obvious, there are safety precautions that every home inspector should never ignore. It may be as simple as ensuring that you have the correct safety clothing and equipment, but this is the foundation of the home inspection profession.

2. Make sure your license and insurances are up to date. It’s absolutely critical to have a current license and insurance. Even if your state does not require licensing, insurance should be a “must have.” Know your renewal date and schedule continuing education classes early enough so you are not in fear of a license lapse.

3. Know Local Laws and Legislation. Each state and local jurisdiction has their own laws that pertain to the home inspection industry and they do tend to change. Make it your responsibility to understand local laws and ensure you are not putting your license and career in jeopardy.

4. Practice Practical and Successful Reporting. How home inspectors take notes, document findings and present results to clients is of paramount importance. There are always ways to improve these reports and increase the potential for repeat business. In addition, all records need to be maintained as required by state regulations.

5. Stay on Top of New Trends. Whether it is the increase in green building practices, the usage of dangerous construction practices or materials, or any other new construction trends, it’s a home inspector’s duty to know about the latest-and-greatest materials and techniques.

“Home inspectors are busy professionals who provide an important service,” says Annie Creek, New Market and Compliance Specialist at McKissock. “We are committed to helping home inspectors deliver up-to-date knowledge to their customers and have the confidence that they are complying with their state or association’s regulations.”

Some areas that McKissock’s Home Inspection courses cover include:

Peterborogh Women’s Self Defense Parties, Latest Party Craze from SAFE International – Peterborough, ON Self Defense

Peterborough Self Defense, SAFE International Announces Latest Women’s Party Craze, Peterborough Women’s Self Defense Parties.

Peterborough, ON, October 30, 2012 - (Straight Line PR) - Peterborough Self Defense, SAFE International Announces Latest Women’s Party Craze, Peterborough Women’s Self Defense Parties.

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile women’s self defense training in Ontario. SAFE International has taught more than 150,000 women since 1994. SAFE International is announcing the latest party craze, Peterborough Women’s Self Defense Parties. SAFE International teaches how to address all aspects of violence, from the ideal outcome of avoiding violence completely, to the last resort of having to defend yourself physically. Many companies skip the avoidance strategies, but if one is truly interested in avoiding violence, it is critical to discuss. The questions that most women have about their own personal safety include:

* How can I avoid becoming a potential victim?

* What would I do if I was attacked on an elevator?

* How would I handle someone who approached me in an underground parking lot?

* Should I carry my purse over one shoulder or crossways?

* What should I say to a potential attacker to possibly stop him from attacking me?

* If I was home and I heard someone break into the house, where should I go, what should I do?

A SAFE International Women’s Self Defense Party addresses all those questions, plus many more.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching women’s self defense Peterborough, is how receptive women are to the concepts that the SAFE International instructors provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows women to learn in a much shorter time. Women’s self defense can be learned in hours, not weeks or years. SAFE International is one of the few self defense companies who make humour an important part of the learning process. This allows everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable to share personal stories and ask questions. SAFE instructors cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage. At a SAFE International Peterborough Self Defense Party they do not teach martial arts/karate, but rather, practical, effective, and memorable concepts over 4 hours.
