"Travel Talk: Escapes."" February 28, 2009
I want to express my deepest appreciation to you and to your excellent classes in tour management. I can truly say that you have changed my life!!
Through your all-encompassing, resources, I received the names of tour companies and cruise lines and learned the best approach to apply for a variety of tour-related jobs.
Once I was hired as a Tour Director with a superior tour company, I had all of the skills necessary to perform my new job, thanks to the thorough instruction I had received from you. You gave top-notch training, good advice for all situations and I received a wealth of information from your classes.
I can thank you for the 17 successful years I have had as a Tour Director, along with the 18 exciting years I have spent at sea in my cruise line job. Neither job would have been possible without you.
Not only did you provide detailed instruction and resources, you also provided a personal touch. Through the years you have been available to your students, helping as necessary and rejoicing in our successes. You have put in a good word when it was needed and you have provided new information. You have even provided extra work assignments, such as the privilege to work the Super Bowl, the Rose Bowl and help out with shore work for cruise lines in port and in airports. This has been outside the scope of your classes and you have gone over and above!
As I continue in my two rewarding jobs, your expertise and your relationships in the travel community has now provided me with a new and exciting challenge in an additional job onboard cruise ships, combining the skills and passions I have. I look forward to this new addition and challenge to my career. The last 18 years have been the most amazing, exciting and adventurous of my life and I have you and your classes to thank for that.
If there is anyone thinking about embarking on a travel career, I would say "Go for it". With Cherie as your unique teacher, you will have a fantastic journey!
Cherie Anderson's course, Professional Tour Management Training, has changed my life! The tools she provides will help get you noticed and in the door. I Landed my first job soon after I graduated. Such a small investment in her wonderful class has yielded such big results. I now work full-time as a professional tour director and port lecturer for a cruise line. I am seeing the world and am loving every minute of it.
