TORONTO — Travel Professionals International (TPI) is celebrating two of its advisors who’ve been named to Condé Nast’s 2021 Top Travel Specialists list.
Both Donna Flanigan and Shari Tucker were chosen based on their expertise, specialization and excellence in customer service.
Flanigan counts Ireland, South Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, Kenya, Tanzania, Italy and Greece among her many specialties and prides herself on treating every client as if they were family. On her Condé Nast bio page, she says “putting together detailed itineraries, which include some of my favourite restaurants and sights” helps sets her apart from other travel specialists.
Tucker, whose specializes in Adventure and Sustainable Travel, says that clients choose to hire her for her vast hands-on travel experiences in more than 47 countries. “Clients know when they work with me that I am not just a booking agent,” she adds. “I care about their trips, spend time getting to know them, make suggestions based on their personal travel interests and am here to help them every step of the way.”
Zeina Gedeon, CEO of TPI, says the entire team is proud of their accomplishments.
“While Donna and Shari have very different business specialties, they share a few similarities: they both go above and beyond for their clients by providing a high touch level of service and are laser-focused on ensuring that they are doing all they can to stay relevant and move their business forward,” she says.
“Both Shari and Donna are well-positioned for continued success and we are so proud of their continued efforts and we celebrate their accomplishments,” Gedeon adds.
