Speaking to C&IT, Acutt cited the fast-food brand’s Champions Club overseas incentive trip which is run every year.
She said: "KFC has around 800 stores within the UK and Ireland, so to make it into the Champion’s Club is a huge accolade and therefore the prize needs to fit the bill."
Other tips include selecting a destination that avoids jet lag. "With our trip lasting only four days, my choice in 2010 was South Africa, where there’s only a one-hour time difference," she said.
"Add something special. Our last night in South Africa included a candlelit barbecue in the middle of the African bush accompanied by traditional dancing and singing. It was spectacular."
Finally, she adds, vary trips year-to-year. "You may have a second-time winner as we did this year," she says.
