“I walked away excited about the great opportunities with Travel Leaders Network to learn and to grow my business,” said Member Christy Wagnitz of Travel Partners. “I have had to overcome many obstacles and changes in the first couple of years as a new owner. This is just what I needed! The speakers did a terrific job giving an overview of the support system Travel Leaders Network has to offer through Agent Universe. The forum was small enough to ask questions and the small table presentations by the suppliers was also great for learning. The more I am learning, the more excited I get.”
“I was excited to participate in the Travel Leaders Network Affiliate Regional in Dallas. I am now energized, again, to take my business to the next level,” said Member Rob Nelson of Nelson Travel. “The best parts of the Regional were the supplier roundtables and trade show. I am proud to be an Affiliate Member and with the success of the Regional, I can’t wait to see what is in store in Orlando for the International Conference.”
