The Society for Incentive Travel Executives (SITE) has selected Kolleen Whitley, CIS, CTSM, CMP, Sr. Travel Program Manager at Next level Performance, as a SITE Northeast chapter Member of the Quarter Spotlight.
Following are excerpts of the full interview conducted by both SITE NE and Next Level Performance...
NXLP: Congratulations, Kolleen Whitley, on your SITE Northeast Chapter Member Spotlight! The Society for Incentive Travel Executives – that's a hugely influential trade organization!
What were the criteria to become the SITE Northeast Chapter Member of the Quarter?
KW: Each quarter, SITE Northeast selects two actively involved industry constituents to highlight from their local membership.
NXLP: What does this honor mean? What new opportunities does the exposure provide?
KW: This will mean amplified exposure to other members of the SITE Northeast community and the SITE community at-large. The shout-out is meaningful recognition from an industry giant that specializes in the importance of recognition.
NXLP: What’s next for you, Kolleen?
KW: My focus these days is on pivoting the remainder of the programs I’m managing for the coming months to ensure safety while offering incentive-quality experiences. The support and comradery of our industry friends and partners has been critical as we all work to share creative solutions geared toward moving forward again in the near future. As we move forward, my plan is to continue to look for meaningful ways to collaborate and support one another within the travel community.
NXLP: What would you like other travel planners to think about SITE membership?
KW: Involvement within SITE and having contributed to the Education and Young Leaders committees has been rewarding on a fundamental level, especially where it comes to education and networking. SITE is one of the foremost incentive industry organizations, so it’s an honor to be recognized by the Northeast chapter.
SITE: What does incentive travel look like 10 years from now?
KW: As technology continues to provide immediacy, there will be an ever-increasing demand for individualized, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and gifts – including immersive entertainment and meal functions that allow guests to experience food in new and unique ways. In response to green efforts and evolving within the tech era, I believe we will graduate from printed materials and almost everything will be distributed electronically.
