There were conga lines, party streamers and double high-fives galore at the Click Travel office last week, as the team are celebrating winning a top industry award at this year’s People Awards.
The People Awards recognise outstanding individuals and teams within and across all aspects of the travel management industry and last week Jill Palmer, Managing Director; Chris Vince, Director of Operations; Stuart Coleman, Head of Marketing and Amanda Norrie, MICE Manager, travelled down to the winners ceremony at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London with their fingers crossed, ready to discover whether Click would scoop any of the four awards that we had been nominated for; Account Management Team of the Year, Reservations Team of the Year (MICE), Sales and Business Development Team of the Year and the Rising Star award.
Turns out, we did!
The team were thrilled when it was revealed that Click had won the award for Sales and Business Development Team of the Year – what a great way to round off the week!
Sales and Business Development Team of the Year is awarded to a team that has driven growth through outstanding sales results by the development and use of a creative and successful business strategy and with that it’s easy to see why Click won this award – we could not think of a better way to describe our brilliant Sales and Business Development Team.
Managing Director, Jill Palmer was delighted with the win:
Our Sales and Business Development Team have been absolutely instrumental in obtaining a record 40% growth in turnover in the last year and as such they are extremely deserving of this award. The team compliment each other incredibly well and consequently deliver consistently strong results for the business – we couldn’t be more pleased with this win.
This latest award will now find a home next to our other recent award win, Business Travel Agency of the Year from TTG, and hopefully signifies another year of record wins for Click!
