AP Podcast – Episode 124: At a listener’s request, Matt and Josh dig into the art and science of recruiting, with the help of some friends of course!


When AttractionPros listeners talk, we listen! In a mailbag meets leftovers episode, Josh and Matt address a very serious issue facing mast attractions today: effective recruiting techniques, especially when the applicant pools are shrinking. This topic was a suggestion from Rob Knemeyer, a previous AttractionPros guest and longtime listener.  We also posed this question on social media and many of the tips and techniques you will hear come from the AttractionPros community.

If you have a question for the mailbag or know of a leader we should highlight on the show, please drop us a line.  If you have questions about anything addressed on the show, feel free to reach out anytime!
