At ATPI, we recognise the importance of investing in our talent, and our Rising Stars programme stands as a testament to our commitment to advancing and empowering promising individuals within our organisation.

Unveiling the Path to Leadership

Launched in 2017, the ATPI Rising Stars programme is a beacon for ambitious employees seeking to explore, learn, and grow within our global business. The initiative has empowered over 30 individuals, providing them with a tailored platform to harness their potential and forge a path towards leadership.

A Year-Long Journey of Exploration

The programme kicks off with quarterly visits to our London office, offering employees the chance to express interest in diverse roles and opportunities. This approach ensures that the Rising Stars get a holistic understanding of our organisation by delving into various departments, including finance, marketing, and account management.

From Shadowing to Networking: Real-world Experiences

Selected candidates are granted the invaluable opportunity to shadow members across different teams, gaining firsthand experience and building a network that extends beyond departmental boundaries. This exposure not only provides insight into the intricacies of our industry but also fosters professional connections within the expansive landscape of the travel industry.

Personalised Mentorship for Professional Growth

The heart of the ATPI Rising Stars programme lies in its mentorship component. Participants are carefully paired with mentors who align with their interests, aspirations, and personal career goals. Led by the senior leadership team, this ongoing mentorship ensures that Rising Stars receive guidance, support, and regular evaluations at every stage of their journey.

Aron Jameson’s Success Story: A Testimonial

Aron Jameson, a recent graduate of the programme, shares his transformative experience: “The Rising Stars program has been incredibly valuable. With the guidance of my mentor, Rachel Brown, I navigated through various departments, faced new challenges daily, and collaborated with leaders. Rachel played a crucial role in translating my ideas into action, allowing me to transition into a leadership role on the digital team. The experience and exposure gained will undoubtedly benefit me in my future endeavours.”

Industry Events and Graduation

The journey extends beyond office walls, with Rising Stars receiving invitations to industry events, including the annual “commercial bootcamp.” These events provide a platform for connecting with key leaders and account managers, gaining insights into company updates, and understanding future goals.

As the programme concludes, Rising Stars present their key takeaways to department heads, mentors, and fellow Rising Stars. The culmination is a graduation ceremony, marking the successful completion of a transformative year-long journey.

Empowering the Future

The ATPI Rising Stars programme is more than just a career development initiative; it is a commitment to fostering a culture of continuous learning, collaboration, and leadership. As we look to the future, the programme remains a cornerstone in identifying and nurturing the potential leaders who will shape the success of ATPI and the travel industry at large.
