Going for Gold in Mauritius

Gold 2019

Our top performing Travel Counsellors were acknowledged for their outstanding achievements at a global conference on the tropical island of Mauritius recently.

Five of our nine ‘Gold’ Travel Counsellors celebrated their achievements at a five-star resort in Mauritius this month, while the others had travelled to Marbella earlier in the summer. Those with ‘Gold’ Travel Counsellors status in Ireland are Mary Foyle, Sarah McCarthy, Mandy Walsh, Lorraine Lawless, Rosemary Chawke, Emer McDermott, Roger Barrett, Robert Kiernan and Jennifer O’Brien.

With 81 Travel Counsellors now running their own businesses in Ireland, 11% have the prestigious ‘Gold’ status. This is the highest percentage globally after the UK, which is at 13%.

Cathy Burke said: “These nine Irish Travel Counsellors are among the top in their industry, with outstanding sales and unrivalled service to all their clients, both corporate and leisure. They are part of an elite group of Travel Counsellors globally with ‘Gold’ status, and the Mauritius and Marbella conferences were an opportunity to celebrate their exceptional achievements.”

Over 160 Travel Counsellors and suppliers from across Ireland, UK, UAE, The Netherlands, South Africa and Australia attended the weekend in Mauritius. The business owners stayed at the luxurious Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa, with activities including sea kayaking, speed boat trips and excursions around the island visiting the Chamarel waterfall and La Rhumerie de Chamarel and the Trou aux Cerfs volcanic crater.

It was a really fun trip for everyone and we all wish we could have been there from Head Office!
