I highly recommend the courses offered by Ambitions. As a Gold Travel Counsellor, I know the importance of soft skills training. It doesn’t matter how knowledgeable you are of a destination, if you don’t have fantastic customer service skills and a passion for exceeding the customer’s needs you will not build a longstanding reputable business like mine. I am very impressed at the content of the courses offered and how they are affordable and accessible for all. More importantly I love the fact that they are written by global travel industry experts who understand how challenging our roles are. What is even better is that they are growing their travel course library and are open to any suggestions you may have for training that will help you to succeed in your travel career. I strongly encourage you to invest a small amount of money in your personal development as doing this will reap you great rewards.

The sales course is fantastic and exactly what the industry needs at the moment! It is simple and effective, especially the real life selling hints and techniques. I highly recommend this course to anybody who wants to learn how to sell without being “salesy”, wants to learn how to communicate professionally and brush up customer service skills. It is also a great refresher tool for travel professionals. The course is fun, interactive and simple to navigate, it’s learning and focusing on successful business all in one!

The seismic shift towards all things digital in our new COVID world has meant many of us are as comfortable learning behind our screens as we are sitting in a conference room – perhaps more.
This eLearning delivers what travel consultants need in this uncertain environment to position themselves as the true experts they are.
Fiona co-founded Big Ambitions with me in 2014 aimed at helping prominent international travel businesses recruit and train travel people. This passion for levelling her travel and tourism colleagues up now transcends to this dynamic new eLearning tailor-made for travel professionals.
For South African travel consultants wanting to take their expertise up a notch, this eLearning is the very nudge you need to invest in your knowledge and growth. What are you waiting for?

As an Australian travel professional with over a decade of senior leadership experience, I have never come across e-learning that is created by travel industry experts and designed for the travel industry that is available globally. These courses are very affordable and are perfectly designed to meet the needs of leisure and business travel consultants. They cover the subjects that we would all want and need in order to succeed and develop in our travel careers.
Global Operations Manager, Australia
Fi is an excellent and driven manager, trainer and travel specialist and has brought together experts to provide this worthwhile training to travel professionals in all areas. These online lessons are engaging, fun, easy to follow, and intuitively interactive. I think they’re a brilliant resource for any travel business. I got involved as a co-author – compiling the blog-writing course – because I have 100% faith in Fiona to provide a valuable and professional teaching product. I’ve been a professional copywriter for over 20 years, working across business and also in journalism for national publications, and my specialism is travel. Learning is a journey that shouldn’t ever end – whether you want to improve your sales technique, copywriting skills or management style. The courses definitely tick all the boxes for adding to the success of your travel career or business.
