The BHTA continues to advocate for and promote workforce development and readiness through initiatives such as the Tourism Champion’s – which, in 2014, has turned its focus on “Tourism’s Rising Stars”.
The program serves to highlight the nation’s graduating students via the media, specifically the Nassau Guardian, who have successfully completed Hospitality or Tourism Related coursework.
Each Rising Star is asked three industry relevant questions:
1. Can you briefly describe your aspirations for a future in the Tourism Industry?
2. Why did you choose tourism as a career?
3. What should The Bahamas focus on to stay competitive?
Rising Stars, their answers and graduating photo are showcased in the Nassau Guardian on a weekly basis, given space availability.
We invite you to recommend individuals who could be showcased. Please contact Charlotte C. Knowles-Thompson for further details at 322-8381
