Read about Esther Canham - find out about her role and little bit more about her life.

Tell us about your new role at CTH and what you have been up to before?

I am the Sales and Customer Relations Manager at CTH. My role is to promote CTH qualifications worldwide, increasing brand awareness and driving the generation of new teaching centres, whilst nurturing existing partners. Previously, I have worked in advertising sales, in both the TV and Cinema industry, but for the last three and a half years I have been planning clients ‘once in a lifetime’ trips to one of my favourite countries, New Zealand.

Has it been much different from what you are used to?

With lockdown restrictions in England advising people to work from home, my first month has been very different as all my meetings have been virtual. I am very much looking forward to getting back to the office to meet, not only my new colleagues, but clients too.

What are you enjoying most about working at CTH?

I love talking to new people, understanding how CTH can work with others and seeing the process through from start to finish - I’ve already had a few meetings with clients from all over the world including Oman, Sri Lanka and India.

What is your favourite food?

My favourite food would have to be Thai. I was lucky enough to travel around parts of Thailand a few years ago and by the side of the road you would find someone selling delicious sticky rice and chicken skewers, no need to go to a posh restaurant at all!

What is your favourite all-time film?

This is probably one of the hardest questions. Anybody who knows me knows I can watch a film and forget what happened a few days later. But I can’t think of any film that Tom Hanks is in which I haven’t loved, especially Catch Me If You Can.

We have got to ask as we are in Tourism & Hospitality, what is the best holiday you have been on?

I have already mentioned that New Zealand is one of my favourite countries, this is where I first travelled to after university, and I have been lucky enough to go back twice since then. The landscape always amazes me and the people are so lovely too. I am going to sneak another one in here as I can’t not mention my trip to South America. Not only was it a massive accomplishment for me, as I travelled around for six months alone (bar the friends I made whilst I was there). I remember the worried faces of friends and family when I told them I was going to visit Colombia, but it was one of the most colourful, varied and friendliest countries I visited on my trip!
