I was delighted to read that Carolyn has secured almost 0.5m investment from Tony Rice. He has also joined the board as Chairman. I interviewed Carolyn back in her Easyjet days! I remember her as entrepreneurial and dynamic with an innovative approach. She also has a genuine interest in people. As a visionary, she created maiden-voyage.com which is unique and dedicated to female travellers. As an A-typcial, but successful I'er, she always had the ability to talk th language of the business leaders, quickly understand their challenges, and work with them using technology to solve problems. I am really pleased that her business is going from strength to strength. If you're not a member as a travelling female professional, then you ought to be!
Launched in 2008 by Carolyn Pearson, maiden-voyage.com is a digital start up in the fast growing female business travel market. With 8000+ members in over 80 countries maiden-voyage.com is the voice of the female business traveller and industry think tank. Used by large organisations and individual business travellers, the organisation specialises in travel safety and duty of care, partnering with some of the biggest names in travel. Pearson launched the site because she was frustrated with the lack of opportunities for women to explore the cities they were travelling to on business and to connect with other female travellers after spending too many nights spent in hotels eating room service and dining alone in hotel restaurants. She created a platform through which women could meet up when travelling on business. .
