What are your areas of expertise?

Whilst I don’t like to admit it, I have worked in this rather niche industry for over 20 years. I started off as a trainee at 16 for Protravel, who at the time were one of the market leaders and industry pioneers. Working in the same industry for a long period of time has given me vast experience and insight across all areas of the business.

Most memorable travelling moment?

Work related - hosting 350 winners on Sydney Harbour for the Millenium. We had the best spot on the Harbour and we partied like it was 1999!

What are your areas of expertise?

Its now been over 15 years since I delved into the world of sales promotion and I like to think that this has given me a lot of in-depth knowledge of the industry as a whole and it has been fascinating watching it grow and adapt with the introduction of social media and ever developing technology. I love keeping abreast of new and unique experiences and marrying these up to prizes and promotions to ensure a fabulous prize for our clients.

Most memorable travelling moment?

I have many very memorable moments, as I have been lucky enough to explore lots of the world but the stand outs would have to be seeing a pride of lions very close up in the Kruger National Park, watching the rehabilitated Orang Utans in Borneo, scuba diving in Thailand, kayaking in Cape Town and exploring the white sands of the Cook Islands.

Natasha Fay

What are your areas of expertise?

Having worked in the industry for a number of years my knowledge of the world around us is pretty rounded. When it comes to areas of expertise this seems to lie in the places I have been or visited, the best way to become an ‘expert’! The UK and Europe, you can spend very little time travelling and gain such variation in scenery and culture, this seems to be my field. Cities, the countryside, coastal, mountain tops.... and then there is the biscuit tin, I am an expert at sharing, eating them and topping it up.

Most memorable travelling moment?

Another country I love is France, the diversity is great. As a family we once visited the Dordogne. My Husband, myself and at the time our 2 small Daughters enjoyed a most memorable day in a kayak paddling up the Dordogne river. With our baguettes and French fayre packed, we meandered along, watching the world go by at a very different pace giving us the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful part of France from a completely different angle. I love the way our Daughters still talk about that day every once in a while.

What are your areas of expertise?

Safari, USA, Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Costa Rica. I am also known in the office for making a good cuppa tea!!

Most memorable travelling moment?

Work related is the recent charity skydive!! Everyone told me it would be the most memorable experience. It was memorable for being the most terrifying experience ever and not one that I would like to repeat any time soon!! Although I am so pleased that I got to raise money for an amazing charity and to do something completely out of my comfort zone.

Dawn Dean

What are your areas of expertise?

I love creating proposals for film and television, there’s an air of excitement about them and it’s a chance to do something a bit different. I am also a bit of a history nerd, so anything related to history always interests me too. On a personal note I have a soft spot for American cities, in particular Las Vegas, San Francisco and Miami. My three favourite holidays I have ever been on are Australia, Mexico and the Maldives – all different but all amazing.

Most memorable travelling moment?

Diving off the barrier reef from Cairns, Australia.

What are your areas of expertise?

Canada, USA and Caribbean

Most memorable travelling moment?

Travelling to Canada and hosting a group at 19 years old. To travel through Canada and be responsible for a group of people gave me such confidence and independence, I initially turned it down as I thought I’d be home sick! It’s the trip that made me appreciate the job that I do and now I would never turn down the opportunity to visit new places if I am given the chance.

Come back soon, this one’s on its way.

Gemma Wray

What are your areas of expertise?

Well I would like to think I have quite an eclectic mix of knowledge. My working history would put the Far East, Middle East, India, Australia and New Zealand as my strongest areas, however over the past few years USA seems to be top on my list for new locations to visit so ask me anything, I have probably been there.

Most memorable travelling moment?

So many to think of, the Grand Canyon this year was amazing, Elephant trekking in Koh Samui, the Taj Mahal in India. Top of the list now has to be Dubai where I got engaged. Travel isn’t always about where you are or what you are doing, sometimes it’s the person you’re with that’s most important.

Victoria Richards

What are your areas of expertise?

Helping our winners to get the most out of their holiday. I love researching and confirming city breaks and cruises.

Most memorable travelling moment?

Cruising the Mediterranean with my husband - our best holiday to date!

Lucy Wright

What are your areas of expertise?

When it comes to my areas of expertise I would say it would be the places I have had the opportunity to work, live and travel to which include Turkey, Tenerife and Asia.

Most memorable travelling moment?

Climbing Adams Peak, all 5,500 steps of it! In the middle of the night. To reach the peak in time for sunrise. The views were incredible.

Chanel Bradford

What are your areas of expertise?

I have worked in the travel industry for around 13 years now, mainly in customer facing roles on the High Street. However, I have to admit I have a soft spot for cruise. Having worked onboard P&O for almost two years I’ve certainly experienced the glamour of life on the high seas first hand (even if I did sleep in a bunk bed next to the engine room). I also have a soft spot for Disneyland Paris. Even after having been to Florida I love the accessibility of Disneyland Paris and if desired you can literally pop there for a weekend break.

Most memorable travelling moment?

Work related – Hard to choose between the Sail into Sydney onboard P&O Arcadia or walking the Great Wall of China. Two experiences to look back on and always smile. Very lucky to be able to check them off my list.
