The Dream Team

Business Development Manager

Tell us about your career in the travel industry...
With over 25 years working in the industry, I started out as a travel consultant/manager then decided I wanted a change after some years and became a BDM for niche travel wholesalers offering unique travel destinations. I have had enjoyed over 50 countries and some more than once so travel is in my blood. Innovative was a natural fit simply because of Robyn (Innovative Travel’s MD), her passion and love for her business was to hard to resist when she asked me to join her two years ago. I love that we are not the same as everyone else in business we are company that has unique relationships in and out of the industry making the role so much more interesting.

Jo's most interesting trip
For me, a destination that ticks all my boxes, having been there three times, would be Nepal. It is not a glamorous destination, however, the people, scenery and walking experience was amazing.

Jo's favourite country / destination
Within the Innovative product range, I would have to say Egypt would be my most fascinating part of the world. The history and culture blows my mind. Then on a complete contrast you have the fabulous African safaris that we offer which rates very highly for me on the wildlife front.

Jo's travel tips
Always keep an open mind, expect the unexpected and be kind and thoughtful when travelling in new places for the best experiences.
