What was the role?

Senior Operations Manager at Exodus Travels

What experience did I gain from it?

I led training sessions in places as far afield as China, Morocco, Nepal and Lebanon as I was launching a strategic operational branding plan. It was a challenge working with many different cultures but very fulfilling. I particularly remember flying to Beirut and feeling somewhat apprehensive about my visit. In actual fact Beirut was one of the friendliest and most welcoming places I have visited and the people that I were training were one of the most accepting and fun groups. 

Why is it an anchor moment?

Preconceptions can often be inaccurate, I now keep an open mind and challenge stereo types that i may have in my head.
