It was fabulous to see so many friends, colleagues and associates to celebrate our 20th anniversary along with our resilience and strength as a company at our recent Holidaysplease conference - our first one since September 2019.
Hellidon Lakes near Daventry hosted us, and the weekend included educational workshops, supplier presentations and training, a black-tie and dresses gala awards dinner, a BBQ, a bunch of fun activities including a team walk, ten-pin bowling, charades, and an opportunity to catch up with many fellow agents and meet some lovely new ones too.
It was a delightful surprise to be recognised for an 'Outstanding Achievement Award' inspired by all the hard work on my website, social media and contributions from my wonderful clients.
I was also recognised as one of the top-selling agents in the organisation as well as the top performer with our own in-house tour operator, Elegant Escapes.
Thanks to everyone including the Holidaysplease head office team, some fantastic suppliers and all who contributed to an excellent weekend.
