Tomorrow's Travel Leaders: 30 Under 30: Paul Lau

30 Under 30: Paul Lau - C&M

In collaboration with TTG Digital, the ITT and Guoman Hotels, C&M Travel Recruitment set out to discover the 30 most inspiring and dynamic people in the travel industry aged 30 years and younger - the 30 Under 30.

Here we profile Paul Lau, performance marketing specialist at Teletext Holidays.

Q: Why did you want to get involved in the travel industry?

A: "It's a dynamic industry still getting to grips with online. I had started my career in online and was and am still learning - what better industry than one that's well established, exciting and challenging at the same time, for me to continue developing my career."

Q: How does it feel to be in the final 30 of Tomorrow's Travel Leaders?

A: "Having spent several productive and fun get-togethers with them at the excellently organised TTG events, I can honestly say it's a pleasure and privilege to be in the final 30 of Tomorrow's Travel Leaders with all these ambitious, talented and dedicated nominees."

Q: Were you surprised to be nominated for the final 30?

A: "I certainly was. I was on my honeymoon I believe when this was first released by TTG and I didn't have any idea that my managing director and marketing director had nominated me for it.

"I'm very grateful to them for doing so as the business gives me an opportunity to do what I enjoy while having the responsibilities that my role entails, as well as the trust and freedom to learn and grow at the same time."

Q: What advice do you have for other young people looking to make their mark in the travel industry?

A: "Don't be afraid to make mistakes so long as you learn from them. Take advice from those more senior than you and [also] keep an open mind."

Having such a reliable recruitment partner with a ‘can-do' attitude means I can leave C&M to get the recruitment brief filled efficiently and effectively.

I have no hesitation in recommending C&M to anyone who needs support, help or advice with their annual recruitment programmes or individual/ad hoc recruitment needs.
