Rachel Hunt shares her story of joining Travel Counsellors from a well known TMC. With her experience and our support, she quickly became one of our top-selling Travel Counsellors.
We recently joined forces with the GTMC to further the training and development opportunities available to our corporate Travel Counsellors.
Over 20 of our corporate travel experts and head office support team members staged a “Takeover day” at the GTMC’s London HQ where they took part in bespoke training. The day aimed to support the growth of their individual corporate travel businesses and provide a seamless service to their business travel clients.
We were joined by our leading travel partners giving Travel Counsellors the opportunity to engage directly with their top suppliers, share new ideas and discuss industry-wide initiatives.
GTMC CEO Adrian Parkes said; “As a valued GTMC member we were delighted to host Travel Counsellors top corporate travel professionals at our London HQ. The GTMC believe strongly in the power of connecting people, nurturing relationships and upholding best practice and collaboration within the business travel community. Opening up our office for Travel Counsellors to teach, train, learn, develop and share new ideas for the benefit of their corporate travel clients is the perfect way for us to demonstrate these values.”
The Travel Counsellors for Business “Takeover day” forms part of a company event calendar that includes our Annual Business Travel Conference which is being held in Birmingham at the end of June. The event will see over 100 of our corporate travel business owners and head office support staff come together to share news and hear the latest new developments for the corporate travel division.
Global sales director Jim Eastwood said; “As a UK top 20 travel management company, our corporate travel division is enjoying continuous growth as more and more experienced corporate travel professionals set up their own travel management business with Travel Counsellors. Using our in-house technology, systems, tools and 300-strong, 24-hour head office support, our corporate Travel Counsellors take pride in providing a round-the-clock travel service for their clients.”
“The GTMC’s mission of continuous improvement, sharing best practices and standards within the corporate travel industry offers perfect synergy to the ongoing training and support we provide to all of our corporate travel business owners, who run their operations from their offices across the UK and are in constant communication with head office support, travel suppliers and fellow Travel Counsellors to ensure their clients enjoy seamless business travel itineraries.”
