Shannon Smith has been promoted to vice-president of training at TravelOnly, announced Gregory Luciani, president and CEO of TravelOnly, in a news release on Friday (April 29).  

Smith has had an "exceptional year," leading the training initiatives for all TravelOnly advisors across the country while navigating the many challenges of the pandemic - all at the same time, the host agency said. 

Despite having just a year under her belt, Smith's peers have given her "top marks" for her expertise and professionalism, the host agency said.

“Shannon arrived at TravelOnly at a really difficult time, “ said Ian Elliott, TravelOnly's vice-president of sales and marketing. “We were at the height of the pandemic, and she was asked to fill a position that had long been held by a very seasoned and valued member of the TravelOnly family. From that very first day, she has created her own path and developed unbelievable new programs and initiatives that will benefit our advisors for years to come.”

Fine-tuning the workflow 

Smith is the one of the first staff members that new advisors meet when joining TravelOnly and over the past year she has fine-tuned the workflow that each advisor follows to ensure optimal success. 

This includes a comprehensive online, self-learning platform combined with product training, business planning and marketing sessions. 

Smith also leads weekly supplier training and development webinars for all advisors.

In November 2021, Shannon was asked to lead another project: training all TravelOnly advisors on a brand-new technology platform, including a new CRM and invoicing system.

Mr. Luciani knew she was the right person for the job and was thankful to have Smith’s leadership during that time.

“We would not have had the same level of success and been able to transition so quickly without Shannon’s technical skills, patience, and guidance. She was the perfect person to have on our team at a very critical time. We are very proud of her work, and we can’t wait to see what she will accomplish in the years ahead," said Luciani. 

"On behalf of the TravelOnly team, thank you Shannon for all you’ve done and congratulations on your promotion!"
