At the end of every trip, it's not just the beautiful sites that people remember, but it is how they felt along their journey.

As Chair of Destinations International, it is critical to me that the destinations we work with are making their communities better not just for the visitor, but also for the residents and greater community. To do this, we need to be having important conversations about what challenges our destinations are facing and how we as a hospitality industry can address these challenges. I’ve recently started having conversations at the international level about the increase in violence that all of our destinations are collectively facing, labor shortages, childcare, lack of community pride, weather disasters – you name it. It's important to me that we come together as an industry and address what is causing these challenges and talk about how it is impacting our communities.

I have been fortunate enough to travel for work and pleasure and even had the opportunity to collaborate with tourism schools and bureaus. Like most people, I have had my share of good experiences and some not so much. A constant thing that I found is that no matter where you are or what the situation is, people have the capacity and ability to make it better or worst. By focusing on developing the people involved in the industry, the Tourism Academy is setting up a strong foundation that will allow the industry to build reliable and knowledgeable professionals capable of making every travel experience unforgettable.

Although people can receive training on the lob through their work experience, there is still quite a large gap that exists beyond the traditional education environment and a a result, people often struggle to receive adequate training in technical fields. The Tourism Academy helps to fill that gap by providing individuals the training and capacitation that is needed to not only improve their own livelihood but also contribute positively to the economic prosperity of their region.
