Nexion Travel Group - Canada has named Michelle Gaudet, owner of Inspired Travel Adventures in Fort Erie, Ont. as its 2019 Rising Star Award winner.  

Given at Nexion Travel Group’s annual conference, CoNexion, held this year in Orlando, Fla., the award recognizes a newer Nexion Travel Group – Canada member who has demonstrated notable success as a new entrant to the travel industry.

Gaudet has operated her travel agency for two years and during that time has transitioned into being a travel advisor full time. She has steadily increased sales, shown strong support for Nexion Travel Group – Canada’s preferred suppliers, completed Travel Leaders of Tomorrow’s Independent Learner program, and attended numerous Nexion Travel Group educational events. Other accolades and accomplishments include winning the inaugural G Adventures Changemaker Award and being nominated for the Niagara Falls Review Reader Choice Awards for Best Travel Agency 2019. Prior to entering the travel industry, Gaudet worked in digital media and retail management.

“Michelle is an ideal example of a Rising Star,” said Mike Foster, president of Nexion Travel Group – Canada. “Her passion for selling travel has led her to an entirely new career where she has had a lot of early success. Michelle consistently makes use of Nexion Travel Group – Canada’s tools and services to grow her sales. She has been an avid user of the Agent Profiler online lead generation tool and has received excellent client reviews which have led to referrals. Michelle shows an especially strong affinity for adventure travel and group travel and has partnered with our suppliers to combine those two interests into bookings. We could not be prouder to have Michelle Gaudet as a Nexion Travel Group – Canada member and are delighted to name her this year’s Rising Star.”
