To celebrate the illustrious Women in Travel, Travel Weekly will sit down with 20 women of the Australian travel industry, to hear their stories of success, setbacks and female empowerment.
This time we talk to Travel Counsellors Independent Business Owner Jacqui Cameron.
Be surrounded by people with integrity and who work from the heart
The best mentors are leaders who empower their staff and aren’t driven by power or authority.
I’ve never felt comfortable with ego-driven management.
Trust your struggles, they will lead to something extraordinary
My manager was like Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada during my second pregnancy.
This pushed me to go solo, taking me to where I am today.
And I would also say it’s important to always value yourself, be authentic and nurture the relationships with your clients.
I dance to the beat of my own drum
I was never a career tiger but a female entrepreneur.
I gained experienced in all areas of the industry so I could eventually create my own business. I now instil my own values, work when I want and have time to be a mother.
Women can have it all, and if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.
Travel Weekly is proud to present the Women in Travel Awards held on 27 November at Doltone House Darling Island.
The awards night will be a gala cocktail party where we will also be announcing Travel Weekly’s Power List – recognising the 30 most influential women in the Australia travelscape.
