SFH graduate could be the next ‘CLIA Rising Star’Posted on 20/02/2019 by Jess O'Connor
Study From Home graduate Shelley Williams has been nominated for an exciting international award.
Shelley is a finalist for the CLIA Rising Star Award for New Zealand.
CLIA stands for Cruise Lines International Association and is the world’s largest cruise industry trade association.
Shelley joined CLIA in May 2018 to further her cruise industry knowledge, which in turn helps her to confidently sell cruises to her clients. Shelley runs a boutique travel agency called Clevedon Travel (you can read all about her journey from SFH student to business owner here).
According to CLIA, the Rising Star award “recognises consultants who have worked in the industry for less than two years and who have shown tremendous achievements over this period, including a dedicated investment in CLIA training and engagement.”
Shelley definitely fits the bill, having taken every module available through CLIA’s Learning Academy since she joined. She’s even launched a new brand of her business called Love to Cruise NZ. Shelley has big plans to grow this part of the business, which is already performing exceptionally well and attracting many cruise customers.
Richard Euston, Shelley’s SFH tutor, says she was an exceptional student and that the entire SFH team is very proud of her success to-date.
“We at Study From Home and ITC are extremely proud of Shelley’s achievement. In her time as a student, Shelley was outstanding. It just goes to show that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and have an amazing career in the travel industry,” says Richard.
The CLIA Rising Star Awards are being held in Sydney on February 23. Shelley will be attending the awards with her husband as a formal guest of World’s Leading Cruise Lines (who represent Cunard, Princess, Carnival, Seabourn and more).
“I’m super happy to make it as a finalist!” says Shelley.
“I’m incredibly proud to be considered. It’s lovely having my training and knowledge rewarded.”
