Connections

 

Thinking of all of the connections I have made in the world of travel, as I continue to continuously improve my knowledge and skills during this quieter time. It was great to meet Peter Greenberg at Virtuoso Travel Week a few years ago.

I always have attended in-person trainings and events around the world. The training continues during the pandemic, although they have been virtual since February 2020. I am.

I believe in SUCCESS.I invest time in continuing education, have earned travel industry specializations, and continuously improve my product knowledge. I stay on the cutting edge of travel, and follow emerging trends. I have conducted inspections of cruise ships and hotels, and regularly attend travel shows such as my Virtuoso consortium’s Travel Tours. And I travel, whenever I am able.

Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers states “ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness.” (See https://www.lushlife.ca/awards-certifications/ .) I have invested that time and more to master my travel skills. As a result, my clients have awarded me with stellar reviews, and my consortium, Virtuoso, has awarded me “top producer” status for sales levels across various travel communities (Adventure, Voyages, Culinary, Family, and Sustainability).

My success earns me exclusive invites to attend events like International Luxury Travel Mart, as well as to experience tours, hotels, and cruises first-hand. I vet options for you.

And I bring all of my business experience, training, and attention to detail together for you so I can ensure your precious vacation time and dollars are invested wisely. I leverage the relationships I’ve built with travel suppliers around the world to ensure your vacation is done right the first time, and to advocate for you before, during, and after your trip.

When you’re ready to travel again, please reach out to me to help. I would love to leverage my successes and training and relationships to help you successfully travel the world.
