Biography

I am an Independent Personal Travel Agent with over 25-30 years experience in the Travel Industry. I am attached to the Global Travel Group who have been established over 20 years. After leaving school I initially worked worked for an independent agency called Woodrow Travel in Mirfield where I built up my main travel career and also a close clientele who I tailor made any travel arrangement to suit their requirements, with many a satisfied customer. I then went onto working for Carlson Wagonlit Travel in Leeds and then London where I organised complex business itineraries for Societe Generale Bank and the Department of Trade and Industry dealing with Ministers travel arrangements which was quite demanding. I then had a break to have my family, however I also studied to obtain a teaching degree to enable me to teach and co-ordinate all the Travel Courses at Dewsbury College involving GCSE,NVQ and A Level students. I have also managed other Independent Travel Companies and have previously owned an Insurance Brokers After a short break in Travel I have decided to set up my own business. I believe there is a market out there for people who are time poor and tired of searching on the internet for the best deal, face to face contact on a more personal level I feel is the way forward and I would be happy to meet and discuss any travel arrangements you have in mind. I can offer UK Breaks, European and Worldwide Holidays, Hen/Stag Parties, Accommodation Only nothing is too big or too small. I also specialise in Weddings abroad and Golf Holidays. I have been playing golf now for approximately 2-3 years and its my aim to help any new/existing golfers organise their own/group trips. I have travelled extensively throughout the UK,Europe, Far East, America and South America and I am looking forward to sharing my travel knowledge with you. So if you would like to arrange a meeting or have a chat about a trip please don\'t hesitate in giving me a call, looking forward to hearing from you :)
