Tourism leaders motivate students to think about careers in tourism

 Friday, March 17, 2023 


Having a first-rate tourism product is important, but preserving a strong pipeline for the most capable, fervent and enthused human capital to provide excellent provisions is equally required to make the industry prosper.

This is the message that frontrunners in the tourism segment drove home when they communicated with high-school students who took part in a recent conference at the University of The Bahamas.

The participating students were accommodated by the College of Tourism, Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Leisure Management (CALM) centering on the abilities needed for the segment that adds 60 per cent of the GDP of the nation. Many UB alumni function in important positions in the tourism and hospitality segments.

Baha Mar Resort president and CEO Graeme Davis said that what began for him as a regular interest became an aptitude for cooking, and has now become a 40-year vocation. Davis requested the students to envisage how they can use their aptitudes into becoming worthwhile careers in the never-ending hospitality and tourism scenario.

Davis said to the students that the opportunities are boundless for everyone who is interested and there is no better time to begin than today, considering the college education that they have.
