Hosted by TIME program sponsor, The Travel Corporation, the event saw four aspiring travel industry leaders of the future join the program, meet their mentors and take the first steps on their mentoring journey.

“To think this is TIME’s 35th intake is astonishing”, said TIME Program founder, Penny Spencer.

Since its foundation in 2009, more than 250 travel, tourism and hospitality industry professionals have graduated from the program and taken their careers to another level. Four more from the cruise sector, group touring and corporate travel joined the program at The Travel Corporation event.

“The before-and-after transformations are remarkable. The self-confidence and belief in their abilities makes many graduates almost unrecognisable from the people that entered the program just six months earlier. We can’t wait to see this four emerge”, added Penny.

Guest Speaker for the night was Megan Flynn. Megan’s career has included corporate law as well as almost 6 years as an executive at the Qantas Group designing and implementing the airline’ sustainability strategy.

“She spoke about her career and the mentors she’s had through the years. Her Q&A session was lively and interactive. It’s such a privilege to bring brilliant people together in forums like this. That’s the magic of TIME”, she added.
