ASKED & ANSWERED
What made you decide to join Global Cynergies? After being laid off from my previous job I decided to take charge of my own destiny and finally realize my dream of becoming an entrepreneur while applying my 25+ years of experience in the hospitality industry. I had researched various hotel and venue sourcing companies and when Judy contacted me via LinkedIn I was excited. Global Cynergies ticked all my boxes: it operates on a truly global basis (currently in 29 countries), it is a “boutique”, high-end organization, it allows for strategic growth and development, and it stands out in its commitment to corporate and social responsibilities.
You have received several recommendations from clients; what key services makes the relationship work for them? Foremost are the obvious benefits of saving my clients time and money. As an example, I recently counted the email traffic on an average inquiry that went through me rather than through the client; there were well over 100 communications related to the sourcing of the best available venue options that my client did NOT have to deal with.
You recently became a Canadian citizen; what made you decide to do that?
It had been my desire for a long-time to become a Canadian citizen, but it was not an option for me as my home country did not support dual citizenship. I was not ready to turn my back on the country I grew up in and where my family still resides. Finally, the rules relaxed, and after having spent an equal number of years in my home country and in Canada, I am now a dual citizen. Being a Canadian and living in this beautiful country is truly a privilege, and I am proud to call it home.
“Joining Global Cynergies has provided me with the independence and freedom to carve my own path and reap the fruits of my labour.

It was a low-risk decision as I am backed up by a fantastic team at head office and an amazing group of colleagues around the world. Working for and with Global Cynergies has exceeded my expectations in all aspects: leadership, tools, integrity, support and earning potential.”
