Four Canberra based personal travel managers were snapped over the weekend as, together with select suppliers, worked on one of three travel stands at The Canberra Retirement and Lifestyle Expo.

Known as “Team Canberra” Alister Pardew, Jenny Dwyer, Leisa Burdette and Pauliina Kelly spoke to most of the 8100 people that attended the expo, resulting in lots of client enquiries and about 40 new referrals for each agent.

“We have all grown our client base and achieved subsequent bookings ranging from a week on the Gold Coast to a four week European holiday including everything in-between. 2014 is shaping up to be a great year,” Burdette said.
