Future leaders of tourism
YoungTEC and The Icehouse collaborates in the development of future leaders of tourism
The Young Tourism Export Council (YoungTEC) and The Icehouse are excited to be working together towards a shared goal of developing the leadership skills, capability and confidence of young people within the tourism industry.
This collaboration will see YoungTEC members offered the opportunity to participate in an intensive full day Leadership course in Auckland this December. The practical course offers future tourism leaders the chance to develop their personal effectiveness and ensure they lead for high performance.
Tourism Export Council of New Zealand (TECNZ) Chief Executive Judy Chen says, “The tourism industry offers incredibly rewarding career opportunities and one of YoungTEC’s key role is to help further develop the young talent we have in this sector”.
“We are thrilled to work with The Icehouse to deliver this programme especially with their proven reputation for developing successful businesses and an excellent understanding of our industry, having partnered with many of our TECNZ members”.
The Icehouse CEO Andy Hamilton says “The tourism sector is doing great things for New Zealand. The growth we are experiencing now is because of the hard work in the past. We also need to reinvest in the capability of our people to keep growing and advancing. That is why we are excited to partner with the Tourism Export Council to help building capability and aspiration in the future leaders in our tourism sector”.
“For the past five years YoungTEC have been delivering the award winning Professional Development Programme, a tourism 101 for those new to the industry, and are excited to now be able to offer our members a step above” says YoungTEC’s Chair, Nicole Botting.
“The creation of the Leadership Day has been a year in the making for our Executive. Thanks to the funding the Hospitality Training Trust awarded YoungTEC earlier this year, we have been able to partner with an incredibly successful company and offer our members a high calibre Leadership Day”.
The Leadership Day will be held at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, on Monday 3 December 2018.
