“In my view, this industry is the best”: GTI Tourism GM

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know that we’ve been speaking to some seriously amazing Women in Travel lately, and today is no exception.

From across the industry we’ve seen phenomenal ladies come into our office, sit down for a chat, get a fab photo and mark incredible milestones for female talent in travel.

We’ve spent the last couple of months celebrating the best of the best from the travel industry and General Manager of GTI Tourism Georgia Gregerson is next on our “inspiring women” list.

“In my view this industry is the best”

I am inspired every day by the product we promote, and I’ve been lucky enough to benefit from some great opportunities.

I’ve learnt that if you put in the hard work and show dedication that doors will open up.

“The rate of change within the industry has always been an exciting challenge and has presented many opportunities”

The past ten years have been such an incredible period of flux, particularly with the change to digital platforms and this has been a huge transformation across the board.

For GTI, we have worked hard to ensure the whole team are at the forefront of this evolution.

The only thing you can guarantee is change, so we are always trying to look forward.

It is never easy but it keeps me interested.

“People are GTI’s number one asset”

We need to be attracting the best talent in the industry, so we have worked hard to create an appealing and supportive environment for the whole team.

It is in our interest to have our team grow within their roles and more broadly within the industry.

Developing a structure that fosters this through formal reviews, training and more informal interactions is key.
