Penny founded TIME in 2009 after reading one of Richard Branson’s books, where he speaks intensely about the benefits of mentoring within business. Penny has been mentored throughout her career as well as having mentored not only her own staff but other mentees over the last 5 years. Penny believes the Travel Industry has so much wisdom and expertise that needs to be passed back into the industry and this is one of the main reasons she founded TIME.
Penny Spencer started her career in the Travel Industry 25 years ago.
After finishing her travel course Penny was employed as a part time junior or in those days a Girl Friday and has worked her way up the ladder over the last 25 years.
Penny now owns her own successful award winning corporate travel agency in Sydney – Spencer Travel.
Over the years Penny has worked and managed in Corporate Travel agencies and finally in 1998 her dream came true and she opened Spencer Travel. Twelve years on she now employs staff straight out of travel courses and trains them up through the ranks. Over 60% of her staff have only worked for Penny and this is what has helped Penny win numerous awards. Penny no longer consults but spends her time training her staff and growing the business as well as being an active member of the Industry that she loves.
