Based in New York, New York, and with a second office in Boca Raton, Florida, Leslie Tillem is an integral part of Global Travel Collection and serves as an expert Corporate and Luxury Travel Advisor with Virtuoso. Having specialized in travel for more than 35 years, Leslie says her greatest skill is listening to her clients and creating itineraries to fit their exact desires.
Leslie’s personal industry relationships, as well as firsthand and intimate knowledge of destinations, allow her to go above and beyond the ordinary — resulting in repeat business, hundreds of referrals and loyal clients. Her specialties include multi-generational/family travel, honeymoons, adventure/expedition travel and helping clients achieve virtually any bucket list trip.
“People will tell me they want the same trip as their friends who just got back from the Caribbean, but after a conversation with them about what they really want, I recommend something I confidently believe they’ll like even more,” she said. “I try to ask the right questions to truly understand what clients want and craft trips based on that, and on my experienced intuition. I’m part of a great team that constantly strives to create something truly unforgettable.”
Starring in a new NBCUniveral reality show pilot, Leslie competes for the chance to win the future business of Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconneti, a celebrity couple formerly on “Bachelor in Paradise.” The episode airs May 20th, immediately following the season finale of Saturday Night Live on “1st Look TV,” NBCUniversal popular entertainment, travel and lifestyle showcase.
“We’re excited to let people know about the critical role of Travel Advisors and this show will do just that. It’s fitting that we are able to announce this on Global Travel Advisor Day, a time to celebrate the hard work of these dedicated professionals,” said J.D. O’Hara, Chief Executive Officer of Internova Travel Group, which represents more than 100,000 travel advisors. “By introducing our Travel Advisors to a national audience, we can highlight the tremendous value and high level of personal service they provide to their clients.”
Extra Mile Club is produced by LXTV, part of NBCUniversal Local. The episode will air on 11 NBC-owned stations immediately following Saturday Night Live and is nationally syndicated, averaging over 1.3M weekly viewers. It is available overnight on NBC Network, LX News and NBC VOD, and available for streaming audiences on Peacock, The Roku Channel, Samsung TV Plus and Xumo Play.
