Travel Industry Mentor Experience (TIME) took centre stage at Flight Centre Travel Group’s Brisbane HQ recently to re-connect, network & introduce its renowned mentoring program to keen prospects.
Guest speaker at the event was the program’s Founder, Penny Spencer. Penny’s presentation was entitled ‘Leadership & Lessons’ — an inspired and insightful look at good (and not so good) leadership.
“It was a real treat to have Penny deliver the keynote presentation at our event,” said TIME’s Queensland Coordinator, Emily Warbrick – General Manager of Snowscene Holidays.
“Penny generously shared leadership lessons learned right through her career. She is an inspiration and mentor to so many.”
The Travel Industry Mentor Experience is a not-for-profit enterprise established in 2009 to offer business skills training, development guidance and support sessions to aspiring future leaders of the travel and tourism industry within a mentoring and peer collaboration environment.
The program operates within a structured framework to deliver agreed outcomes for each participant, and typically runs for six months.
“It’s so great to see TIME’s footprint growing in the Sunshine State. Our Queensland network is really thriving,” said Penny.
A key take-out from Penny’s presentation was the principle that great leaders don’t set out to be a leader. They set out to make a difference. In the 10 years since she founded TIME, Penny has certainly done that.
TIME’s 35th group of Mentees starts its six-month mentoring journey on 19 June 2019, with expressions of interest for that intake due by 17 May.
