Alison Goosen – Senior Consultant

I have been in the travel industry for over 14 years, both in South Africa and since 2012 here in New Zealand. I live and breathe travel and have spent a lot of time exploring the USA, United Kingdom, Caribbean islands, and Mauritius. I have been a successful team leader both in corporate and retail and managed a major corporate portfolio. I am a determined, motivated person who is passionate about my clients and service delivery.

Jaime William – Senior Consultant
Cook Islands Expert

I have been in the travel industry for over 10 years in leisure, corporate, and managed my own store on the Gold Coast. Born in NZ but with Rarotongan heritage on my father's side, I am lucky to call two such beautiful countries home. I've lived on the blissful island, and we go home frequently to visit family still there. I have lived in Australia, Rarotonga, Norway, London and have travelled to over 45 countries around the globe - so I have a pretty diverse range of knowledge to share with my clients. It brings me great pleasure in helping clients to create the trip of a lifetime, and help bring it all to fruition. Travel is my passion, along with delivering professional and friendly service. I look forward to creating your next bucket list trip!

Next trip: I've just returned from a food and wine cruise with P&O Cruises. I'm looking forward to travelling to Rarotonga again over the xmas / new year period!
