Club Med announces final ‘Nominate a Mate’ winner

Club Med announces final ‘Nominate a Mate’ winner

Last week saw Club Med’s ‘Nominate a Mate’ competition wrap up with the final winner revealed!

Marie Sulda, the Owner of Kaleidoscopic Travel in South Australia, scored a future Club Med holiday, thanks to her nominator Jane Cormack, who is from the same agency.

Maria Sulda and her family

Cormack told Club Med that Sulda was a pillar of strength and a source of constant positivity for her staff as her businesses suffered.

According to Cormack, Sulda had fostered a real community among her team and nurtured them through this incredibly challenging period and always being cool, calm and kind.

If keeping her business afloat wasn’t enough, the past few months saw Sulda thrown some more personal battles, when she suddenly lost her daughter Sienna to a sudden brain aneurysm, suffered while she was at school.

Through all this turmoil, Cormack said Sulda still remains resilient and showed strength in supporting both her family and her Kaleidoscopic Travel team.

“Marie continues to bring us together as a team, even if just for a walk and a coffee, and inspires us to focus on the future when borders open,” Cormack said.

“Thanks to Marie, Kaleidoscopic Travel and our group of specialist mobile travel designers will get through these difficult times and be ready to make travel dreams come true when people can get out into the world again.”

This final nomination marks the end of the Club Med Nominate a Mate initiative.
