Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific Appoints Emma Todd to Chief Activities Officer

Travel is the movement of people between distant geographical locations. Travel can be done by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, bus, airplane, ship or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one way or round trip.[1] Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements, as in the case of tourism.
The origin of the word “travel” is most likely lost to history. The term “travel” may originate from the Old French word travail, which means ‘work’.[2] According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the first known use of the word travel was in the 14th century. It also states that the word comes from Middle English travailen, travelen (which means to torment, labor, strive, journey) and earlier from Old French travailler (which means to work strenuously, toil).

In English, people still occasionally use the words travail, which means struggle. According to Simon Winchester in his book The Best Travelers’ Tales (2004), the words travel and travail both share an even more ancient root: a Roman instrument of torture called the tripalium (in Latin it means “three stakes”, as in to impale). This link may reflect the extreme difficulty of travel in ancient times. Travel in modern times may or may not be much easier depending upon the destination. Travel to Mount Everest, the Amazon rainforest, extreme tourism, and adventure travel are more difficult forms of travel. Travel can also be more difficult depending on the method of travel, such as by bus, cruise ship, or even by bullock cart.[3]

The move is designed to support the company’s recent initiative to enhance guest and club member stays with the introduction of a raft of activities at its managed Club Wyndham South Pacific, Wyndham, Wyndham Grand and Ramada by Wyndham resorts.

From e-scooters and e-bikes, to stand-up paddleboards and boogie boards, gold and gem mining, pedal carts and more, more than 100 experiences have been added across the company’s resort collection over the past year. Activities are free for Club Wyndham South Pacific members and can be experienced for small fee by resort guests.

Ms Todd has a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry. She is currently the General Manager of Club Wyndham Seven Mile Beach in Hobart, Tasmania. She has transformed the property into one of the most popular Club Wyndham resorts in Australia. She led the establishment of the resort’s hobby farm and vegetable garden, along with a billy tea and damper experience held once a week by an open fire. There are also flora and fauna eco walks and e-bike treasure hunts.

“I am delighted to take on this new and exciting role. It has been wonderful to see such a positive response from our club members and guests since we have introduced the activities,” said Ms Todd.

“The experiences have certainly made our resort stays more memorable. The e-bikes, as just one example, give visitors the chance to better explore the region, and we have chosen additional activities unique to each location. At Club Wyndham Denarau Island in Fiji for instance there is coconut bowling and an aqua tramp. In Ballarat, Victoria, there is a gold and gems sluice among other experiences. So guests can always look forward to something different,” she added.

In her new role, Ms Todd will collaborate with resort managers across 52 resorts in the Asia Pacific region to create, enhance and coordinate activities.

Warren Cullum, Senior Vice President of Hotel and Resort Operations, Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific said, “Emma is the perfect fit for the role with her impressive track record of creating unique activities for our club members and guests. During her time with us, she has earned a reputation for being creative and innovative. We look forward to seeing more exciting initiatives introduced to further enhance guest and club member experiences.”

Ms Todd will serve as a key link between the senior leadership team, corporate offices, and resort managers to oversee and help enhance each resort’s activities program. Emma will continue to fulfil her role as General Manager of Club Wyndham Seven Mile Beach while taking on this exciting new role.
