Hello fellow Skålleagues!

Recently I attended the Skål Australia National AGM and Congress in Canberra. This was a fabulous event organized by the Canberra Club and I was joined by one of our new Members, Donyale Sexton, who was able to assist in presenting our Skål International Perth “Prize Pack” to the raffle winner.  Wetu, the company Donyale represents, donated a technology package prize to this pack and we also had generous donations from members’ Ryan Mossny (Two Feet and a Heartbeat), Laurie Lord (Willie Creek Pearls) with tours and Wendy Hernan from Cruise & Maritime Voyages) with a short cruise on the Astor.  All up, our Prize Pack was valued at over $5000 which is outstanding and I applaud the generosity of those members who contributed!

We have had a number of New Members join over the last few weeks (Vicki Gordon from South African Airlines, Wendy Hernan from Cruise & Maritime Voyages, Stuart Chalmers from Excite Holidays and Glen Jupp from Corporate Traveller).  We look forward to inducting them into the Club at our May function on Thursday 10th May.

Indeed, next month we are showcasing our work with the Travel and Tourism Education sector with our function to be held at the Pavilion Restaurant operated by the Hospitality deparment at Joondalup TAFE (one of the North Metropolitan TAFE campuses).

It’s important for Skål to support these organisations and for them to see us making an effort in learning more about the education process and meeting some of the students who have received our education awards.   The Winner of our Skål International Perth “Brian Philippson Award” for the Top Travel & Tourism student will also be awarded at this function.

urge all members to attend and show your support to this new wave of future professional entering our industry!  We have a bus transfer option from the city planned and the train station is nearby giving options to those not wanting to drive… Please do make the effort to attend.

Skålleagues will be treated to a delicious 3 course meal prepared by up-and-coming students. It’s a great opportunity to see training in action!  We are also looking forward to welcoming Skål International Australia’s President, Fiona McFarlane who’s planning to visit us!

Yours in Skål,


Ali Banks
