"As a veteran advisor, I always appreciate nuggets to improve business and processes and am delighted to now be a part of the Travefy community," shares Denise Shorthouse, a Luxury Travel Advisor with First Class Destinations in Vancouver, Washington.
"One of the highlights of my year was attending this year's Sales Workshop as both a participant and a speaker. Travefy understands how important it is for Advisors to come back strong and grow their businesses," notes Geraldine Ree, a travel industry veteran, business coach, mentor, and author located in Vancouver, Canada.
