Travel agent cel­e­brates suc­cess with Gary Bar­low and Ver­non Kay

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A TRAVEL agent joined more than 1,400 col­leagues from across the world to cel­e­brate the suc­cess of her busi­ness.

Anita Devon­port, of Field­bank Road, Mac­cles­field, runs her own travel busi­ness from home as part of Travel Coun­sel­lors.

The mum-of-two was in­vited to an event at Manch­ester Cen­tral to cel­e­brate her hard work, gain tips and in­for­ma­tion, and en­joy per­for­mances by a host of stars.

The three-day event fea­tured talks by in­spi­ra­tional speak­ers Katie Piper and Chris Moon, a per­for­mance by John Bishop and an in­ti­mate show by Gary Bar­low.

It was hosted by tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity Ver­non Kay and gave Anita the op­por­tu­nity to meet more that 200 travel sup­pli­ers, in­clud­ing tourist board, ho­tel and air­line rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

The theme of the con­fer­ence was ‘do­ing the right thing’, cel­e­brat­ing ded­i­ca­tion to keep­ing cus­tomers at the heart of the busi­ness.

Anita said: “The con­fer­ence re­ally was amaz­ing.

“Apart from the spec­tac­u­lar en­ter­tain­ment, we also had ex­tremely use­ful busi­ness ses­sions where we were up­dated on the com­pany’s fu­ture de­vel­op­ments and given in­sight­ful travel ad­vice and tips for the year ahead, as well as hear­ing from in­spir­ing guest speak­ers that have left me more mo­ti­vated than ever.

“I am re­ally ex­cited to put all the new in­sights I’ve learnt into prac­tice, ben­e­fit­ting my cus­tomers and en­abling me to de­liver an even more per­son­alised travel ser­vice.”
