Are you passionate about Trent Hills? Love to share stories, local experiences, and make recommendations in all three communities? You may be an ideal candidate for our Trent Hills Ambassador Program.
Many residents are staying close to home this year and want to find new ways to appreciate, as well as support our communities. There are also responsible and respectful visitors who are interested in learning about all that our area has to offer. Trent Hills Ambassadors play an active role in promoting local businesses, as well as sharing our community pride with residents and visitors.
As a business owner, you are the face of Trent Hills, connecting with many people on a daily basis — both online and in-person. These interactions go a long way in creating a positive and memorable experience for all. Ambassadors provide helpful information on local shops, restaurants and services, directions and locations, as well as the benefits of buying local — all with a warm and friendly tone.
As a resident, you live, work and play here in Trent Hills, with a unique connection to the area. You are an important voice in promoting and contributing to the story of Trent Hills. By sharing your experiences, unique finds and recommendations, you inspire other residents and visitors to do the same.
There are so many ways to help. Perhaps share a local story, experience or safe activity? Recommend take-out from a favourite restaurant? Or a local shop with unique items? A service provider who regularly exceeds expectations? Write a positive review on social media or Google? These ‘little’ things go a long way in helping our local business community recover from the economic impact of COVID-19, as well as continue to thrive in the future.
A new Trent Hills Ambassador Program will soon be available online and is open to local residents and business owners in all sectors: tourism, hospitality, retail or service-based businesses. It is important that participants have knowledge of all three communities and what each has to offer. Upon completion, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion, as well as a digital ‘Trent Hills Ambassador’ badge that can be displayed on your website or social media accounts. The online workshop will include the following topics:
• Role of a Trent Hills Ambassador
• COVID-19 safety protocols
• Creating a positive and lasting impression
• Providing a memorable experience
• Local and visitor profiles
