Here at Travel Counsellors, we love to celebrate success. One of the ways in which we do that is with our regular anniversary days, where we invite Travel Counsellors who are celebrating their business birthdays to our head office for a day of recognition.
Last week, five franchisees with a combined total of over a century in business, came together with our directors, fellow business owners, and support team colleagues, to mark the special occasion.
Toasting 20 years with Travel Counsellors, Gold business owner, Michelle Leonard, was delighted to celebrate two decades as her own boss. Michelle said: “I am beyond proud to reach a truly significant milestone in travel, celebrating 20 years of running my business with Travel Counsellors.
“Throughout this time, I’ve seen both my own business and the Travel Counsellors community, flourish. I may have started as an individual, but I now also operate as part of a team – a group of Travel Counsellor experts who work together to support our customers, ensuring they enjoy seamless booking and travel experiences. The team spirit is tangible, and a whole lot of fun!
“My business focus is on creating memories to last a lifetime, with multi-destination and complex itineraries to provide a truly tailor-made experience for my customers. 80% of my clients are returning customers across the last 20 years, and I’m pleased to call many of them lifelong friends.”
During the anniversary day, our long-standing franchisees were also invited onto the sofa for a very special instalment of TCTV – our weekly broadcast which keeps the entire Travel Counsellors community up to date with the latest news and celebrations.
Karen Morris, Engagement Director at Travel Counsellors, comments: “We’re so pleased to celebrate these brilliant business owners, who have not only hit some outstanding milestones but are reflective of the caring community who truly make it a priority to be there for their customers and support each other’s businesses.
“Leveraging the collective knowledge of our 1,900 travel experts across six countries, as well as the personalised support provided by our digital platform, Phenix, means that no matter how long our individual Travel Counsellors have been in business, they can provide unwavering support to their customers. Their businesses are powered by technology but are made even better by the human touch.
“These milestones are not only for the history books, but they point towards a bright future for those business owners who may have just started with Travel Counsellors, building corporate and leisure travel businesses that see returning customers across the decades.”
