Travel industry support services firm Resource has celebrated its fifth birthday.
The company was founded by respected travel industry leader Maxine Wiggs after she recognised that her teams often needed an extra pair of hands or specialist expertise for a particular project.
Wiggs also recognised that, for all kinds of reasons over the last decade, brilliant travel people were unplugging from the 9-to-5 grind and offering up their skills on-demand when it suited them.
“I knew there was demand for fast, flexible expertise and specialised capabilities in the travel industry,” she said.
“And I knew there were great people all over the country that could provide it.”
In the five years since its foundation, Resource has worked with more than 40 businesses right across the travel and tourism spectrum, supporting and shaping their marketing and communications, delivering PR and HR services, producing awards submissions, RFPs and tender documents, graphic design and visual branding, content collateral, and more.
“We work in a number of industries now, but ‘travel’ is in our DNA. We are travel people with decades of experience in just about every corner of the industry you can imagine,” Wiggs said.
“I did not expect my first five-year business plan to conclude with a global economic shutdown. And yet, here we are!”
