TV presenter Vernon Kay will name the places he can’t wait to jet off to when restrictions ease at a virtual motivational event being held today (Friday) by Travel Counsellors.

More than 1,000 business owners and colleagues are registered to  hear from expert speakers lined up to inspire and motivate those watching at home.

The virtual event will culminate in a special appearance from company annual conference favourite Kay, discussing potential destinations as well as life in lockdown and how he has coped with home schooling.

The day will recognise Travel Counsellors and colleagues who have inspired the rest of the community during the pandemic, from those who have stepped up to help fellow business owners, to volunteering in their local communities throughout the pandemic.

The company’s ‘TC Kids’ will also highlight throughout the day, featuring children and families, as well as panels of people from across the business, sharing their experiences from the last few months, and their hopes for the future.

Travel Counsellors global sales director Jim Eastwood said: “Through our Inspire virtual event we’re recognising that it’s been a challenging period for so many in travel, but now is the time to pause and reset our thinking.

“There is no better time to see people pull together once more, celebrate the individual and collective achievements of a global community who have continued to look after their customers, no matter what, and have looked after for each other throughout this time too.”
