Meet Our Travel Advisors: Michele Matcham

Michele Matcham has been in the travel business for going on ten years, but she’s been passionate about it her entire life. With a life-long love of exploring the world, there are few places Michele hasn’t been! New Zealand is a favorite spot, but each trip she’s taken has been special for her, with fond memories of family and friends across the world. Some of Michele’s favorite specialties are Italy, Los Cabos, New Zealand, and Australia. Michele made the switch from Triple A to Maupin almost two years ago. “I love Maupin Travel; I love the environment in our office and that we work with Signature. Signature offers so much in terms of products and training, but we also have fantastic personal relationships with our vendors. It’s an amazing team of professionals that make up the vendors, tour operators, and properties that we partner with to make your trip the best it can be. ”

With an extensive travel background, Michele has a lot of funny stories to share with her clients and officemates, including that time she sailed through the Bordeaux region of France with ONE outfit for five days. When we say we can make anything work, we mean it! “When I set sail on this river cruise through Bordeaux my luggage was lost and didn’t arrive until 3 days before heading home. I ended up wearing the same jeans, white t-shirt and sweater for 5 days onboard. I’d wear the sweater backwards by itself or change the t-shirt to an off the shoulder ensemble to switch it up as much as I could. It became a lot of fun to see how I could diversify 3 pieces of clothing for formal nights and champagne tasting!  By the end of the trip the staff were giving me scarves, high heel shoes and necklaces to borrow. EVERYONE onboard knew that I was the one that had the lost luggage and when I would walk into the lounge for dinner or a drink the entire room would tell me how beautiful I looked and what a lovely outfit I had on. I never went out to buy anything in the stores because I was told that it would be there “that” night before 9pm each day. Even given the wardrobe mishap, it was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken!”


Michele’s Top 3 Tips for Traveling

Have a current passport at all times. You never know when someone might invite you to summer at their Italian villa.

Embrace your inner gypsy. Be open to new destinations, even if they aren’t on your bucket list.

Always take a medical bag with you when you travel, including Advil, bandaids, upset stomach medication, and wipes.

  6. Hi, just came across this article. Its a fantastic illustration of how small to medium sized companies can use Awards based advertising to get their companies ranked on the 1st page of Google. Awards programmes offer many benefits to winners. After all they bring exposure and you can share the news of your win with your employees, clients, industry peers and target market as many times as you like. Additonally awards offer prestige and status, giving potential customers peace of mind that they are working with a reputable company. There are many types of awards programmes, including those that host awards ceremonies (and you pay per table), organisations that award only their members (and you pay for membership and sponsorship) and those that provide marketing materials. The latter is a great way for those who are wary about the benefits of using corporate awards programmes because generally nominees and winners do not have to pay a penny to be considered. Winners often receives online exposure, usually with a reach much greater than their own marketing efforts can offer. Other free benefits can include the use of an press release. Most participants have the option to purchase additional marketing materials to further utilise their win, if they wish to, for use in social media campaigns, on their own website, email marketing campaigns or in customer newsletters.
