TIME heads to Melbourne

THE Travel Industry Mentor Experience was hosted by the Platinum Travel Corporation in Melbourne last month, with the TIME network and their guests taking the opportunity to network, develop new connections and discuss professional development.

The night was chaired by TIME graduate Ingrid Berthelsen from Evolution Travel Collective, who hailed the interest in the program from several aspiring new mentees in the room. Platinum Travel Corporation Director, Andy Buerckner, also entertained as he spoke of how, despite mentoring from his high profile father Carl, he never thought he’d work in travel. “I wanted to be something cool, like a bungee jump operator,” he said.
