I founded the business almost 20 years ago, alongside Co-Founder, Ian Brooks. We have built an unmatchable reputation in the travel industry and are the go to for mid-senior level appointments. In 2020, our shareholder and Director, Laura Davis, alongside Ian, took over the day to day running of the business, whilst I built a portfolio of voluntary roles:-
Ambassador at Working With Cancer
Board Director at Association of Women Travel Executives
Board Director at Global Travel & Tourism Partnership
Ambassador at the Family Holiday Association
In 2022, I launched a startup – Best Workplaces in Travel with the aim of supporting travel businesses post covid to combat the ongoing challenges in retaining existing and attracting new talent. Winners are identified by asking the people who truly know – their employees -to rate what they truly value at work. This is achieved via a unique, innovative survey format, with values elicitation technology powered by Korero, enabling every individual to rate what’s important to them – far removed from the usual static list of questions in other surveys. This not only boosts the profile of these companies in the talent marketplace, but it also improves the industry’s overall reputation as a great place to work.
I am passionate about the travel industry and all things people, and continue to champion Companies who look after their internal customers, their employees.
