The 2019 Cover-More Travel Insurance TIME scholarship recipient has been announced & he’ll join the mentoring program’s 34th intake later this month.
A chuffed Christopher Allan from Imagine Cruising has been named the recipient of the Travel Industry Mentor Experience’s (TIME) 2019 Cover-More scholarship.
“We are so grateful to Cover-More for this investment in the Australian travel industry of the future”, said Penny Spencer, TIME Founder.
“As a not-for-profit, we work hard to keep costs and fees down, but we appreciate that some aspiring TIME applicants still might not be able to fund their own participation.
“The Cover-More scholarship removes that barrier to entry provides invaluable support and an incredible opportunity for ambitious professionals like Christopher.”
The TIME Program’s fees cover six months of dedicated, tailored mentoring from a strategically selected senior industry professional.
Having started his travel industry career in retail sales in 2011 after four years backpacking around the globe, Christopher shifted to corporate travel management before joining Topdeck & Back-Roads Touring.
Then, two years ago, as Christopher explains: “I joined Imagine Cruising, a part of the Emirates Group, as Regional Aviation Manager where I happily remain to this day. I am extremely excited about entering the TIME mentoring program and am unspeakably thankful to Cover-More for providing me with this amazing opportunity to develop myself and career in such an incredible way.”
Mike Stein, Cover-More’s Executive General Manager Sales & Distribution (APAC) recognises the importance of sharing the experience through mentoring.
“The travel industry is rapidly changing, but history remains a wise teacher. Access to experienced industry leaders has always provided invaluable insight and a springboard for aspiring and motivated employees. TIME provides just this kind of access,” said Mike.
“It’s win-win; we develop individuals and see them flourish, and by fostering a platform to share knowledge and experience, we’re future-proofing the industry. Cover-More is very proud to continue to support TIME again in 2019.”
