Meet Your Host - Nicole Mahoney
Destination On The Left Podcast Host and CEO, Break the Ice Media
Hi! I’m Nicole Mahoney, founder of Break the Ice Media a marketing agency focused on tourism marketing and host of the popular podcast, Destination on the Left.
Break the Ice Media was launched in 2009, with a focus on helping organizations and businesses in the tourism industry attract more visitors. At its core, BTI is a marketing communications firm with a strategic approach to content marketing that includes public relations, social media marketing, digital advertising, video marketing, search engine optimization and more. By telling the stories of our client’s brands, we help them engage with their target audiences and drive visitation to their destinations. This hyper focus has resulted in 13 awards and industry recognition just since 2017.
In October 2017, I launched Destination on the Left, a podcast focused on the travel and tourism industry, exploring successful collaborations, creative marketing ideas and best practices. Each week I interview destination marketers, industry leaders, consultants and businesses in the tourism industry and every week I learn something new.
I believe that the travel and tourism industry is a core economic driver for every community. My vision is to enable travel and tourism professionals to be better at accomplishing their goals in order to have a greater impact within the communities they serve. I would like my legacy to be one that has served this industry in such a way that we have created a positive impact on the economy and there are stronger communities because of it.
It is this strong belief coupled with my desire to take the podcast to the next level that led to the launch of the Destination on the Left virtual summit.
I am grateful for my past podcast guests who have agreed to take this journey with me and offer this amazing content to all of you.
I hope you will join us!
