Inspirational Places now has representation in each of the three major business centres in South Africa.
Susanna Voysey has been appointed Sales and Marketing Manager, based in Johannesburg, while Helen Balidis has been appointed Sales and Marketing Assistant, operating from Durban.
Voysey has a background in business development, events, marketing and sales, having worked in various industry sectors, including the last three years as Sales Partnership Manager at high-end travel show, We Are Africa.
Balidis is also well known in the industry, having spent 15 years at New Frontier Tours, first as Contracts Specialist, and the last ten years as Sales Travel Specialist.
