Champagne corks were apopping in February as Trav

first_imgChampagne corks were a-popping in February as TravelManagers’ personal travel managers Mike Eacott, representative for Boronia in Victoria, and Denise Dean, representative for Hendra in Queensland, both celebrated their personal best ever month of commission sales.“Everyone at TravelManagers is absolutely thrilled that Denise and Mike’s hard work has been reflected in record commission sales. Our business model continues to provide personal travel manager certainty with its focus on lowering operating costs and improving income. Personal travel managers work under their own steam, when and where they choose, in addition to the remuneration being very attractive. It’s easy to see the TravelManagers model is a winning formula,” said TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager Michael Gazal.“Our focus on training and facilitating networking opportunities for our personal travel managers via strong national and state-based support through the national partnership office remains strong.”Denise DeanDenise Dean credits a combination of her own passion for travel and client loyalty for her success. “My clients inspire me and they are the reason I get out of bed every day. [They] are extremely loyal, as well as booking their travel they are constantly recommending me to their local interest groups and colleagues who need travel too. Having a broad network of contacts, here and overseas is important to my business along with my ability to promote to my target markets.” A personal travel manager for the past three years, Dean says she couldn’t ask for more – revelling in her newfound flexibility, the overwhelming support of the national partnership office team, and the opportunity to pair her own passions with travel.“I have to confess I was a little apprehensive when I joined TravelManagers three years ago but I needn’t have worried. I love being part of the TravelManagers’ family. The support I receive from the national partnership office is invaluable and, more importantly, I am working less hours and earning substantially more. “My personal interest in ballet and dance has led me to offer studio tours to give dance students the opportunity of travelling overseas and experiencing master classes with the world’s leaders in dance,” she says.Mike EacottFor Mike Eacott, his February success came via long-term satisfied clients and repeat business. “It was a large booking I have been nurturing for over 12 months that contributed to my fantastic February sales result. One of my fantastic loyal clients was planning a family reunion, which they do every few years. After many meetings with my clients we decided to include a self-drive around the US and Canada on the way to the family reunion. It is my personal service and expertise I add to provide value that keeps my clients coming back again and again.”Eacott also cites the flexibility of running his own business in his own way as a major perk of being a personal travel manager.“I love that I can provide my clients with products to best suit their holiday needs and the flexibility to meet with my clients where and when is best for them. Working from home also allows me the opportunity to look after my ailing mother without any stress, I can drop by to see her 3-4 times a day and it doesn’t impact on my clients.“Time is your own when you are home-based,” says Eacott.
