To celebrate the illustrious Women in Travel, Travel Weekly will sit down with 20 women of the Australian travel industry, to hear their stories of success, setbacks and female empowerment.
First up is Intrepid Travel Creative Content and Video Manager Lucy Piper.
Politics can be challenging
It’s tough to remain relevant in local markets when global views might be different.
Political conversations around immigration and Brexit have potential to impact travel perception.
These are big conversations, and travel brands often have stakes in such issues, which is a challenge.
Change leads to opportunities
I’ve been exposed to different brands, businesses and people – so the breadth of my experience has taught me a lot about our sector of the industry.
The rapid rate of change also meant there is always opportunity – starting out as a copywriter, before gradually stepping up to global Creative Content Manager.
Support one another
The key to supporting the career development of women is to ensure they’re set up for success.
Encourage learning, training and crossfunctional development.
Taking an interest in other people’s development is something that pushes me to develop myself, so support becomes a two-way street.
Travel Weekly is proud to present the Women in Travel Awards held on 27 November at Doltone House Darling Island.
The awards night will be a gala cocktail party where we will also be announcing Travel Weekly’s Power List – recognising the 30 most influential women in the Australia travelscape.
More than just recognition, the Awards provide an opportunity for new business opportunities and network expansion, as well as a chance to learn from some of the most empowering and inspiring women in your industry.
Come along, gush over winners and finalists, and mingle with the industry’s best.
Also, a big thanks to all our sponsors:
