Awards Ceremony and Richard de Crespigny’s Presentation Brings TravelManagers’ Conference to a Close

As Royal Caribbean International’s Voyager of the Seas sails around the Tasman Sea, a mix of supplier networking sessions, small group workshops and two presentations by individual personal travel managers dominate the morning of the third and final day of the TravelManagers’ 2013 national conference.

The highly anticipated final key-note speaker Richard de Crespigny, one of Qantas’s most senior and experienced pilots will close the conference late morning.

De Crespigny will tell of his compelling experience captaining QF32 on 4 November 2010 as an explosion shattered one of the engines just minutes after taking off from Singapore.

“Richard is better qualified than most to talk about teamwork, problem solving, experience and putting years of highly-skilled training into practice. Drawing parallels between the aviation industry and identifying with the many challenges retail travel face today, Richard’s story is truly compelling and highly inspirational,” says TravelManagers’ Finance Manager, Tanyu Cilek.

Conference participants will enjoy a free afternoon experiencing first hand all that the Voyager of the Seas has to offer.

“There is nothing quite like immersing yourself in the product and with 15 decks, ten pools and 14 bars, clubs and lounges, our conference participants are spoilt for choice,” says Cilek.

The final night of the conference will see the TravelManagers’ team enjoy a Gala Awards ceremony followed by dinner where the top performing and most improved personal travel managers will be recognized for their outstanding performances.

Without doubt the Voyager of the Seas has provided a memorable conference experience.

“We spend a great deal of time, energy and money ensuring our national conference is the best it can be for everyone – ensuring it meets the needs of our experienced personal travel managers as well as those that are new. It also needs to meet the requirements of our national partnership team and our suppliers. It is a golden opportunity to bring people together and we strive to ensure it is an educational, inspirational and networking opportunity for all,” says Cilek.

The Voyager of the Seas returns to Sydney on Saturday 9 November with an early morning dis-embarkation.
