TIME gives agent focus

Gaining a place as a mentee in the Travel Industry Mentor Experience (TIME) programme and picking up a gig as a regular travel columnist in her local newspaper have helped keep Dunedin agent Alexandra Hannagan focused and busy during the demanding times of the Covid pandemic.

Now the owner of Hannagan and Greive Travel Associates, just off the Octagon, has a new challenge – working out how to manage her time and effectively service valuable clients as the whole industry battles with staff shortages.

Graduations, an announcement of the latest inductees and some new and refreshed sponsorships were all part of a TIME (Travel Industry Mentor Experience) NZ ceremony and function at Crown Institute of Studies in Auckland early April.

The proceedings were held in an atmosphere of optimism as borders open, the industry gets busy and the focus is firmly put on developing skills as well as retaining and attracting talented personnel in the travel and tourism sectors.
