Midweek Interview

Midweek Interview with Clockwise Consulting’s Nicole Tingey

We were recently joined by Clockwise Consulting co-founder and director Nicole Tingey on the Travel Weekly couch. For a chat, that is – not a therapy session or movie marathon.

The challenge for the industry is…

Providing quality service in all areas.

The things I like about my job are…

Meeting new people and seeing new places.

And the frustrations are…

Businesses constantly looking for new leads to increase revenue, rather than investing in the training of their own staff to convert more effectively.

If I didn’t work in travel, I would be…

An architect.

My favourite airline is…

Thai Airways, serving airline food I actually look forward to (always a good Thai curry).

My proudest moment was…

Seeing my son onstage performing with his rock band (yes, I was living vicariously).

The naughtiest thing I ever did was…

Sneak into a Eurythmics concert back in the day.

I try to relax by…

Doing yoga and planning our next holiday.

The last time I feared for my life was…

Standing at the top of a black ski run. I’m definitely more of a fair-weather skier.

If I can, I always try to avoid…

Chocolate.

I really wish I had…

Chocolate.

The best advice I’ve ever received was…

Be successful and peaceful.

I don’t understand why people…

Don’t take time to really listen.

My greatest weakness is…

Wanting to do it all.

And my greatest strength is…

Finding a solution.

If I won a $1 million lottery, (aside from travelling) I would…

Give to those who need it most.

If I was prime minister, I would….

Prioritise support for carers.

If I could be someone else for one day, I would be…

Julie Bishop.

I’ve always wanted to travel to…

Morocco.

My favourite holiday was…

Broome with my family. What a spectacular country we live in.
