Brisbane-basedJudy Anglim has worked in the travel industry for many years, and maintains that Indonesia, has always been her favourite destination. Her active involvement with Bali and Indonesia began in 1997 when she became product manager for Venture Holidays, during this time she worked tirelessly to raise Indonesia and Bali’s profile as a preferred holiday destination for Australians within a highly competitive market, building trust and loyalty with her agency partners in Indonesia, while forging industry relations and goodwill.

Judy is now working for Infinity Holidays as their Destination Specialist to Asia, working closely with reservations, retail and marketing to drive more business to Indonesia and Bali from the Australian market, contributing, without a doubt, to Indonesia’s year on year increase in tourist numbers from Australia.

Some of Judy’s most admirable work has been during times of trouble such as immediately after the Bali bombings. When other travel agents have focused on sending their Australian clients to alternative destinations, Judy has focused on helping Indonesian hoteliers with recommendations and suggestions to help improve the business from Australia.One of her industry partners in Indonesia commented that Judy is the “Godmother of Bali”.
