Castle Leslie Estate Banana Bread | Brownell Hosting

Castle Leslie Estate Banana Bread

One of the perks of the Brownell Hosting and Mentoring Programs is the access to Brownell’s strong network of travel partners. With more than 125 years in the travel industry, we have developed relationships with the top travel suppliers across the globe (see what some of them have to say about us here). Our partners make special trips to our offices to give updates and presentations throughout the year. Even though you may work remotely as an independent travel advisor, someone takes thorough notes during each presentation and posts them on our database and intranet so you’ll always be in the know!

During a visit from Jonathan Epstein, President and Owner of Celebrated Experiences, and several hoteliers from Ireland, we learned that Brownell Independent Advisor Debbie Fairvalley loved Castle Leslie Estate’s banana bread during her stay at the property – so much so that she requested the recipe and makes it all the time! Castle Leslie Estate shared the delicious recipe with us, so you can get a taste of Ireland’s best kept secret.

I'm inspired to set new goals

“Brownell Academy is my chance to step away from the daily office routine and immerse myself in the world of travel. Having uninterrupted quality time with other advisors and vendors not only builds camaraderie, but inspires me to set new goals. I come back to my office not only rejuvenated, but also with specific actions I can immediately implement to improve my business & provide better service to my clients.”

My clients are spoiled because I am part of Brownell

“I found my family when I found Brownell. Just having their name behind me brings enthusiastic greetings (and sometimes hugs) from hoteliers, and suppliers when I first meet a new partner. The support and values are truly outstanding and I couldn’t imagine being with another host agency. My clients are spoiled because I am part of Brownell.”
