I’m an independent contractor with Main Beach Travel, Gold Coast. They are ATAS accredited. Travel agencies that bear the ATAS symbol have met strict criteria. They are required to conduct business in compliance with the Australian Consumer Law and in accordance with ATAS Charter and Code of Conduct.
I have over 30 years leisure and corporate experience in the travel industry. I’ve worked for various travel agencies as well as Australian Airlines, Qantas and Ansett. Whilst living in Canberra and as a result of my excellent service, the Canadian High Commission invited me to become their official travel agent. I also managed the Japanese Embassy account.
Although I’ve been in the industry for a very looong time, I don’t know everything as it’s an ever changing and complex industry. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll certainly find out via my vast network.
Prior to my travel career, I held positions in a number of areas of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, including the Cabinet Office, and later with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Task Force as secretary to Sir John Bunting. My secretarial career included a position as secretary to the Information Attache at the South African Embassy. I have also worked as a business owner, court reporter, waitress, model and marriage celebrant. Phew!
