Travel Counsellors welcomed 30 of its agents to its Melbourne head office last week to celebrate their anniversaries as Travel Counsellors and the continuing growth of their businesses during their time with the company.
With anniversaries ranging from one to five years, the large group of Travel Counsellors were greeted with a champagne reception and linked up via webcam to the company’s international UK headquarters where they were thanked by Managing Director Steve Byrne for their dedication and hard work.
The attending Travel Counsellors were also part of the live audience at the company’s in-house TV studio for its weekly TCTV broadcast to the company’s agents across the country, with four of the agents appearing on the show to talk about their own personal insights into running their own successful travel businesses and the support and tools they receive from the company to do this.
South Australian based Travel Counsellor Eleanor Lamdin comments; “After being a Travel Counsellor for almost 4 years it was lovely to be invited back to head office to celebrate my anniversary along with 29 other agents. The day was informal and relaxed, and it was fantastic to have the opportunity to spend time at head office to see just how much support is provided to us and how great the team dynamics are. It’s also so lovely to be rewarded for my hard work in such a way and really reinforces to me why I joined the company. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to celebrating my next anniversary back in Melbourne.”
The group met up with a number of suppliers and took part in several Q&A sessions with head office staff members including General Manager Deb Duncan. They also enjoyed a tour around the company’s head office, which houses a growing team of staff dedicated to supporting the company’s Travel Counsellors in all areas of their businesses, including admin, IT, marketing and business development, to enable agents to focus solely on their customers. The agents were also given updates on the company’s technology and latest developments, including the in-house dynamic packaging system Phenix.
Travel Counsellors Australia’s General Manager, Deb Duncan comments; “This is our second and largest anniversary day and it has proven a huge success. It was great that our Travel Counsellors got to revisit head office to spend time with our support team and see our new developments and also for us all to celebrate being 32% up on sales and 24% up on yield which is a stunning result, most importantly, we are all friends who tirelessly support each other to ensure that we all meet our goals.
.so it made for a really special day.”
