Sage advice

Secker sees the 30 Under 30 programme as an opportunity to increase his bank of contacts, but also to generate awareness of Red Sea Holidays.

 

“Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders is a great opportunity for the business. I’ve already made contact with a fellow member of 30 Under 30 and look forward to working closer with them to drive revenue,” he enthuses.

 

Looking to the future, this young travel professional has lofty ambitions, with a director role locked in his sights.

 

“I want to be a person that others can go to for help. Recognition in the industry is a real driver for me.”

 

Secker offers this advice for young professionals starting out their career in the travel industry: “Embrace every opportunity, whether it’s attending an evening event or collecting as many business cards as you can. Networking is crucial to your success. Travel is not a nasty industry, so get out there and meet as many people as possible.”

Nick Hughes, sales director, tour operations – B2B Europe at Gold Medal and Travel 2, sponsor of Tomorrow’s Travel leaders, says:

 

“Ashley’s tenacity to grow his personal network of contacts in the travel industry is really impressive. Making those connections is all important and opens up a world of opportunities to collaborate and grow. He has understood the power of having a network across the industry and using that to carve out an increasingly responsible role at Red Sea Holidays.

 

“Ashley’s recognition of the valuable role that trade partners play in the success of any tour operator stands out for me. As a B2B tour operator, we know how important the trade is to the travel industry. Ashley’s determination to reconnect Red Sea Holidays with its trade partners has produced fantastic results for the brand. Egypt is an amazing destination with so much to offer travellers. Giving agents the chance to experience a destination for themselves, and to share that first-hand knowledge with their clients, has had an immediate and positive impact on Red Sea Holidays’ bookings.”
