Voices of Travel: The Next Chapters with Denise Heffron

Are you ready for the next chapter?

In this week’s episode of Voices of Travel: The Next Chapters, Denise Heffron will tell you her story, talking about her first job at Sunquest Vacations, and observing: “I had a good friend who worked there, and I’d gone to a product launch with her, and I said, ‘if this is work, get me a job’.”

And the rest, as the saying goes, is history as Heffron, now the managing director of Uplift Inc. Canada, has been in the industry for over 30 years and counting.

But there’s lots more as Heffron sits down with Canadian Travel Press’ executive editor, Bob Mowat and reflects on her time at Transat, the changing tour operating business, some of her best memories, diversity, equity, inclusiveness, COVID, advice for people who want to get into the industry and some thoughts on what the future holds.
