"I’m longing to return to New Orleans… for the best beignet and coffee at Café Du Monde."

Bio: My love affair with travel began at the iconic airline, British Caledonian. This opened the door to corporate travel work at Hogg Robinson, where I went on to launch their group travel team. My career continued in events and production and I have worked in many sales and management capacities for agencies including Black Tomato and Penguins.

"I’m neither a glass half full nor glass half empty kind of person; I just want a glass that’s overflowing!"

Bio: My career in the industry started with Exhibition and Trade Mission travel, mainly in the Middle East, then a move to London took me in to working in the Japanese and Swiss markets. I then took a role at Ayscough Travel specialising in Incentive Travel. My journey took me to Chelsea Village Travel where I worked on group travel projects related to Chelsea FC. I joined Baldwins Travel covering Incentives, Trade Missions and School groups, before joining CT Group Travel.

Hobbies: Is Prosecco a hobby? If not I’ve gone wrong somewhere!

"A banana is 105 calories; a glass of Prosecco is 80 calories. Choose wisely!"

Bio: My passion for travel started at secondary school when I studied travel as a GCSE; I then completed a two year BTEC National Diploma in Travel & Tourism. My first job was with a local Tour Operator as a Reservations Consultant where I successfully worked my way up to become the Aviation & Ticketing Manager. After 10 years in the leisure sector, I felt it was time to further my experience into groups & business travel and joined CT Group Travel in 2017.

Food: Fajitas washed down with a cold glass of bubbles!

Places: Sri Lanka, Mexico, Dubai

Right Out There: A couple of my most memorable adventures include a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon whilst on my honeymoon and elephant riding through the jungle in Kerala

Willow

Wellness Director

 
"The best therapist has fur and four legs"

Bio: Working in the CT Groups office is the perfect job for me. Everyone is always so happy to see me, even when I have to ‘confiscate’ the treats they attempt to hide in their drawers. Staff Wellbeing is so important. It’s amazing how a belly rub, cuddle and quick walk round the block can reduce stress!

Loves: All my work buddies. Playing hide ‘n’ seek in the office

Hates: Being told to ‘go to bed’ when I’m in the office… really? Who sleeps on the job?

Food: Anything, especially Angela’s (Head of Groups) secret stash of Willow treats
