A team of Travel Counsellors (dubbed the Kimberley Kids) have just returned from an unforgettable trip around awe-inspiring Red Centre after winning the companys recent sales incentive challenge.
The company launched a competition earlier this year which saw its agents divided into teams, competing against each other in various challenges to secure the most bookings.
The lucky team of agents jetted off for five days to experience an array of accommodation, activities and iconic sights across the breath-taking destination. The trip was hosted in partnership with Sunlover Holidays and included visits to Alice Springs, Kings Canyon and Uluru, exploring indigenous culture, deep canyons, towering peaks and ancient land, offering a truly special experience. The group all enjoyed the unique offerings ranging between the decadent dinner, 'Sounds of Silence', to the challenging Kings Canyon Rim Walk, travelling between each destination by road spotting camels, dingos and amazing birdlife along the way.
New South Wales based Travel Counsellor Mareesa Florek was one of the lucky agents to attend the trip and comments; I could never have imagined the wonderful trip I had. It was like going on a trip of a lifetime with your best friends and to meet and get to know my fellow team members properly was such a pleasure. The competition was a great idea and really kept all of us motivated and working hard for sales, and through hard work, determination and working well as a team we proved anyone can win it. I cannot thank Sunlover Holidays enough for their fantastic hospitality, along with all the fantastic accommodation we experienced during the trip. We all have some fantastic memories to treasure forever and I feel proud to be part of such a special company.
The competition is just one of a number of fun incentives that Travel Counsellors has organised for its agents in order to keep them motivated and focused on driving their business forward, including global team challenges with the companys worldwide team of Travel Counsellors hosted on the companys intranet system. Agents are able to communicate with one another via an internal webcam and instant messaging system, as well as having access to global message boards where they can ask advice, feedback and have general chat with fellow agents.
Business Development Manager Tracy Parkinson comments: The competition was a great success and proved a fantastic way to encourage our Travel Counsellors to get those all important sales whilst learning more about Sunlover product as well as having fun and creating a strong sense of camaraderie. The winning Travel Counsellors were treated to a luxury Red Centre trip which none had experienced before. As a company we are firm believers in the fact that you cant beat first-hand experience of a destination. We encourage all our Counsellors to go on educationals so they can give the best possible service to their clients.
