Guildford College

Inspiring the next generation of business travel experts

Guildford College invited Global Travel Management to present to a group of first and second year students this week.

Managing Director Scott Pawley gave a presentation to an attentive audience taking a break from their Travel and Tourism BTech and City and Guilds Level 3 studies.   The talk covered a number of topics concerning business travel, including

  • Reasons for business travel
  • What are the different “types” of business travel agent?
  • What products and services are offered
  • What specific requirements business travellers have

In addition, Scott covered his own personal journey through the business travel industry, including setting up GTM and seeing the business grow, year after year.

Scott explained why he gives these presentations.   “It’s important to inspire and inform the next generation of business travel industry experts”, he said.   “At GTM we are very aware of the vital role our great staff play in our company’s success.   So it’s important that anyone entering the industry has as much knowledge as possible about what to expect when they start work”.

GTM has offered places to two of the Guildford College students to gain work experience in the industry.   Scott explained that the candidates will be joining the business for two weeks later in the year and will be given hands-on experience on a number of aspects of how an award-winning, international business travel management company operates.
