Get to know your BDM – Inspiring Journeys
Name: Andy Roberts
How long have you been working as a BDM for Inspiring Journeys?
I’ve been a BDM within The Travel Corporation for eight years working in both Melbourne and Sydney, having just recently joined Inspiring Journeys to head up the team in Australia and New Zealand.
What is your favourite destination?
Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory is truly something. Aside from the Crocodile Dundee references, it’s one of the most breath-taking places on Earth. Whilst Australians often pay thousands of dollars to travel overseas, they can often miss the best of their own backyard!
What do you love about your job?
I love interacting with my travel agents, working with them towards success and sharing with them the many amazing experiences we offer.
What destinations are on your bucket list?
New Zealand, I would love to experience more of the South Island. I was inspired by the amazing scenes from ‘Lord of the Rings’. And Uluru and the Red Centre. As an Englishman, I can liken Uluru to our Stonehenge for its iconic status. I actually never went to Stonehenge until recently, it’s one of those things where you think ‘it’s local, I’ll get around to it later’ and since living in Australia it became 26 hours of flying away. I wouldn’t want to be in the same situation with Uluru particularly while the Field of Light installation is such a focal point for the region and it’s more accessible than ever.
