Meet The Team

Shirley Dodt, Account Manager

Shirley’s love of travel and adventure started at a young age, which led to her first role in the tourism industry as a Travel Agent. Over the next 3 decades, Shirley has grown her experience across all areas of the industry including wholesale, product management, and sales development for hotels, touring activities and small ship cruising across Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Shirley joined the SLC Representation team in 2022 as Account Manager based in Australia. Working with innovative tourism companies helping to create new ideas,
sharing their story, and building strong relationships is her driving passion.


Travel Inspiration

“My love of travel truly started as a product manager for Greece and Turkey. I remember on my first trip to Turkey, the exact moment I was in a hot air balloon, silently rising above the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia, I knew working in the travel industry was my destiny. I have since visited Turkey at least 12 times. As my two daughters have grown into young adults,
being able to share our adventures together has been so special. Recently returning from India, this has further ignited my sense of discovery. Having visited over 60 countries and 57% of the world, I have an incredible passion for travel, meeting people and learning about
their cultures and way of life, this inspires me every day to continue my journey.

Travel Inspiration

“I caught the travel bug on my first trip overseas when I was 17, for the next ten years, I would work hard, but save harder for my next adventure. After having children, personal travel was not as frequent (flights are expensive with four children), but I’ve always got a trip on the horizon. I often have to pinch myself when I travel for work – we’re so lucky to be able to travel to such incredible places and call it work! I couldn’t imagine being in any other industry.

Vanessa Rengger, Market Manager, Australia

With a passion for the tourism and travel industry, Vanessa joined SLC in January 2021 bringing over 20 years’ experience in achieving successful outcomes across multiple industries. Known as a strategic thinker, Vanessa has highly developed communication skills, and most importantly is a natural relationship builder. Her tourism career started in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland leading her to travel south and take on a national sales role with Accor Hotels. It was Vanessa’s 7.5-year tenure with the world’s first fully fashion branded hotel, Palazzo Versace, Gold Coast that solidified her career. In more recent years, Vanessa has been contracting to InterContinental Hotel Group, Supporting the sales and marketing team on projects to highlight the re-opening of Hayman Island Resort. Vanessa loves to travel with her family and as soon as a safe ‘travel bubble’ opens, they will be back to experience a part of Asian they have not seen before.


Travel Inspiration

“Lucky for me, it was my first job in the Tourism Industry that gave me the opportunity to experience other countries and cultures which developed my love for travel. I became hungry to explore parts of the world I had not seen before and found a deep love and connection for Asia, in particular Vietnam. My first visit was in 2005, my honeymoon, and my husband and I spent six fabulous weeks travelling around Vietnam, vowing one day we would bring our children back to experience this alluring South East Asian country. We fulfilled our promise in 2014!
