“I was awarded the opportunity to participate in the TIME program as part of winning the ATMC Young Executive Award for 2015. I was introduced to Chad Howard from Virgin Australia Holidays, as my mentor. Given I had just been promoted into a new role at CTM as the Regional Client Value Manager Qld, with eight employees to manage, my time with Chad has been invaluable. We have worked on many different things, however specifically on management styles and getting the best from my team. Having someone external to discuss ideas and run things past has been amazing. The TIME program has been a great opportunity to meet new people and experience a different approach. A special thanks to Chad for his time and effort with being my mentor.”
