Louise’s lifelong passion and support for the travel and tourism industry is exemplified in the exceptional delivery of her training programs.
“Louise, I just wanted to personally inform you of the great response my travel agents had after your specially designed TICO prep course. I have arranged many classes over the years, and my agents mentioned they have never experienced such professionalism. They truly appreciated the way in which everything was organized and most importantly the way in which the classes were delivered. As you know with over 60 agents it is not always easy to please so many. However, all were delighted and truly enjoyed the content of the classes. I am pleased to pass on this good news to other organizations” Gary Unsworth
“The content was well organized, and easy to understand. The trainer, Louise was very knowledgeable. In future, I will encourage my co-workers and staff to join Louise’s course” Albert Lai
