The weekend was attended by more than 90 Gold Travel Counsellors from the company’s overseas offices, including five Travel Counsellors from Ireland, accompanied by Cathy Burke, General Manager Ireland.

Gold Travel Counsellor Rosemary Chawke from Tipperary commented: “I had such a fantastic weekend in Orlando. I work so hard all year to reach the Gold status and it is lovely to be recognised and appreciated in this way. Everything about the trip was top class. The Head Office management and staff really pushed out the boat for us to make this trip the best ever. I am so proud of my success and to be part of the Travel Counsellors family for the past nine years, but especially to be a Gold Travel Counsellor for eight of those years.”
