We caught up with Academy Travel Counsellor, Tricia Anderton who joined us in January 2018 after attending the Conference Discovery Day in 2017. Tricia told us why if you get the chance to attend Conference, it’s the best way to help you decide if Travel Counsellors is right for you.
What did you get out of attending the Conference Discovery Day last year?
"You can read about life as a TC but actually being there amongst everyone is incredible. Nothing is hidden from you – you attend all of the sessions that everyone else does so what you see is absolutely what you get. It definitely made my decision to join much easier."
What do you remember most about Conference last year?
"The thing I remember most was the level of energy – it was absolutely incredible – huge grins on everyone’s face and I just knew I wanted to be a part of it."
What were your highlights?
"Steve Byrne’s session was absolutely fabulous and Dr Kate Allatt was so inspiring."
Why should other people attend this year if they are looking at becoming a Travel Counsellor?
"As above really – the collateral you can read is excellent but to experience just for a day what life is like in the TC family should not be missed."
What are you looking forward to most about Conference this year?
"I am looking forward to the inspiring speakers most of all – also it would be nice to win a prize!"
