Two Griffith Business SchoolTwo Griffith Business School alumni have been named Young Tourism Leaders by the Queensland Government. Brooke Santurini, Brand and Marketing Manager at the Gold Coast SUNS and Jackie Babbage, Brand Manager at Riverlife were appointed by the Minister for Tourism, Major Events and the Commonwealth Games Kate Jones.

The Young Tourism Leaders program aims to showcase the lifelong careers available to those entering the industry.

These young leaders are part of a year-long program that involves speaking at secondary schools and other events, as well as sharing their own journey on social media for inspiring others.

Ms. Babbage will be encouraging young people to take risks and be creative.

She said, “There’s so many opportunities in tourism and, when you’re young, there’s less risk if you want to branch out and start your own business or do something you would just love to do.”

Ms. Babbage was also part of a recent Department of Tourism, Sport and Hotel Management event aimed at the next generation of the tourism industry.

“I think that Queensland has an opportunity to really set a high standard in terms of delivering unique experiences,” she explained.

Ms. Babbage added, “Customers are really driving that trend at the moment and we’re in the perfect place in the world to do so.”
