Targeting aspiring, mid-level management professionals with a minimum of three years experience in the travel and tourism industry, TIME offers development guidance, business skills and support sessions within a formal mentoring and peer collaboration environment.

“The TIME board acknowledges that there’s a perception of youth when it comes to mentees but that is, in reality, unfounded”, says program founder Penny Spencer.

“When we look at the roles our mentees have held upon commencing the TIME program, we see just about every job title, level of experience and seniority you can imagine. Whether you’re a BDM, a BSM, ISM or a CSM, a GM, an ASM, a Brand Manager, Event Manager, Director, Marketing Assistant, MD, Reservations Manager, Sales Support Coordinator, Revenue Analyst, Team Leader or Travel Specialist we’ve already accelerated the careers of someone just like you”, says Penny.


The message is simply that mentoring isn’t just for young executives. At any point in your career, a mentor can take your professional skills to the next level.

Since launching in 2009, 28 mentee intakes have graduated from their TIME mentoring programs, accelerating the leadership paths of some 200 professionals from more than 100 travel, tourism and hospitality businesses.

And right now, TIME is calling for expressions of interest from aspiring industry leaders wishing to take action and develop their skills, networks and advance their careers.


To be part of the program’s 29th intake in February 2018, aspiring participants are encouraged to visit the TIME website or contact Marie Allom: [email protected]

Applications and expressions of interest must be received by 12 January 2018.
