Every waterpark has a story – make sure your staff are telling it

07 Nov 2016
by Aleatha Ezra, Director of park member development, World Waterpark Association
Give team members the tools to deliver on-brand messages that share a facility’s unique story

Hundreds of waterpark professionals came together for the World Waterpark Association Show, held from 11-14 October in New Orleans, Louisiana.

One of the memorable messages came from Michael Donnelly, a WWA best speaker recipient and recognised expert and consultant in the principle of building successful corporate cultures. During his keynote, Donnelly shared insights on the power of world-class customer service and how it can only be achieved when it is communicated to every member of the team and incorporated into every touchpoint.

“Every waterpark has a story. Leaders can, and should, leverage the power of their story. Why? Because your people want to know that they are a part of something larger than themselves,” said Donnelly.

He also explained why it’s necessary to give team members the tools to deliver on-brand messages that share a facility’s unique story.

“Positive emotional connections lead to positive economic outcomes,” he said. “Seek emotional connections with employees through sharing and celebrating your organisation’s heritage, and with guests through providing exceptional experiences.”

According to Donnelly, any waterpark that wants to be truly successful needs to find the sweet spot in the centre of people, place and process. If any one of these is lacking, the guests will not have the kind of experience that makes them want to repeat it again and again.

And everyone in the leisure industry knows that you need guests to want to come back if you hope to continue upward growth in your business.
