Travel writers wanted: Wellington Travcom Event

Wellington Travcom Event, 25 October – Wine ‘n’ Cheese & Slide-show Spectacular

Please register by 19th October

The Wellington Travcom committee are pleased to invite you our second event for 2011

  • Want to network with fellow travel communicators while eating cheese and drinking wine or juice?
  • Want to socialise with fellow travellers while eating cheese and drinking wine?
  • Want to kick back and relax while four fellow travellers present a Pecha Kucha-style slide show

(Pechakucha is 20 slides – with only 20 seconds per slide – we guarantee there’ll be no yawning or nodding off. And who knows, next time it could be you. It’s a good excuse to hone your public speaking and brush up on Power Point – key travel communication skills, right?)  see more here

See and hear:

Heather Hapeta on “How I turned men into monks”

Sarah Bennett on “How I became a travel writer”

And, photographers Nick Servian and Chris Coad on a topic of their choice.

We will also be discussing plans for 2011 so bring your ideas, wants and desires for Wellington Travcom 2012
