Midweek Interview: Anthony Harris, Reservations Manager, Trafalgar
By admin


The challenge for the industry is….to not become complacent when dealing with clients and to treat every client interaction as if it was your holiday you were planning.

 

The things I like about my job are….is the fantastic variety of destinations and product that Trafalgar offers.

 

And the frustrations….that there's always so much to do in a working day.

 

If I didn't work in travel I would be a….working in the property market.

 

Qantas or Virgin?….I have to sit on the fence for this one as I like them both.

 

My proudest moment was….signing the deeds to my first property.

 

The naughtiest thing I ever did was…..swiping the centre piece from an industry event.

 

I try to relax by…drinking Bin 128 on a Friday night.

 

The last time I feared for my life….was during a slightly hairy airplane landing during bad weather.

 

If I can, I always try to avoid…using the word tour. We sell Guided Holidays.

 

I really wish I had…flown on Concorde.

 

The best advice I've ever received was…not to assume anything.

 

I don't understand why…they have not re-released Supersonic Travel.

 

My greatest weakness is….death by chocolate.

 

And my greatest strength….is the ability to get on with almost everyone.

 

If I was prime minister I would…shrink the average working week to four days.

 

If I won $1 million on the lottery I would….buy a Porsche, take a long holiday and buy another house.

 

If I could be someone else for one day I would be…myself with super powers.

 

I've always wanted to travel to….Turkey to see ANZAC Cove.

 

My favourite holiday was…Hawaii
