Collette treats global sales team to memorable famil in Sicily after global conference

Collette wound up its Global Sales Conference in Cefalu, Sicily this week by treating the global sales team to a famil in Taormina last week getting to understand the magic of the island.

The team led by Christian Leibl-Cote, experienced the elegance of Taormina, hiked Mt Etna, tasted the magnificent Mt Etna wines, enjoyed the street food of Palermo (the spleen sandwich wasn’t for everyone) and beauty of Cefalu. Sicily is one of the most popular destinations for Australians travelling with Collette,  and the team now know firsthand the beauty and the benefits of traveling with the Collette tour managers.

Sicily was also home to some very special Collette Team celebrations recognizing the incredible success the brand has had in recent years. Newly appointed Managing Director Australia, Karen Deveson said “I feel extremely lucky to be part of a ground swell. Collette’s growth is Australia is incredible. Being here face to face with the Product Designers for Italy and Sicily,  I can see firsthand the innovation and care that goes into a Collette trip. Touring has changed so much and I’m loving the pace and the freedom. I’ll be back to do the Small Group itinerary Sicily and Its Isles as soon as I can.”
