New Irish Gold Travel Counsellor Jennifer O’Brien said: “I was so thrilled when I achieved Gold status last month. I have been a Travel Counsellor for five years so it was a huge achievement when all my hard efforts eventually paid off. The weekend was a great opportunity to spend quality time with other Travel Counsellors and head office staff – everyone was so welcoming and friendly. The opportunity to experience an event like this really makes me proud to be part of such a special company.”

The annual event was hosted at the exclusive Fairmont Bab Al Bahr hotel. During the weekend the agents were able to participate in a range of excursions that included visiting Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World, Yas Links Abu Dhabi Championship Golf Course and Yas Marina F1 Circuit. There was also a special Gala dinner on the Saturday evening hosted by the brand new 5-star Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi. The evening included an awards ceremony where the Travel Counsellors who had achieved Gold for the first time were presented with the honour.

Steve Byrne, Managing Director, said: “Celebrating the success and hard work of our Travel Counsellors is vitally important to us. So far this year, across the globe they are doing fantastically with average earnings at a record high. The number hitting gold is also at the highest level ever – there are now 146 Gold TCs globally.

“The Gold Weekend is so special because Travel Counsellors from across the globe get a chance to meet up and share their experiences. This year was exceptional for many reasons, one being the tremendous hospitality shown to us by the hotels and suppliers we experienced. It’s a testament to the strength of our relationships with them that they went to such lengths to ensure all our Travel Counsellors had a great time.”

Travel Counsellors have the opportunity to qualify for Gold twice a year – in May or November. The decision as to whether they are awarded Gold status is based on sales figures for the previous 12 months. To succeed, advisors achieved commissions totalling €78,900 or more over 12 months.
