Leadership in the hospitality and tourism sector

9am – 11am at Micklegate Social, York

We talked to businesses in the hospitality and tourism sector, to find out what skills are ‘in demand’ for the sector. Your overwhelming response was – leadership.

We have partnered with Julia Felton (Business HorsePower), a specialist training provider in leadership and management, to provide a tailored workshop for the sector. The workshop will be two hours long including a 15 minute networking break.

In this interactive and high energy masterclass we will examine the topic of leadership in hospitality and tourism, and what it takes to be an Engaging Leader. Millennials and Gen Z are estimated to make up over half the world’s population and together account for most of the global workforce. As this demographic is one of the sector’s largest source of manpower we will delve into how to engage them so they deliver more productivity and profitability to your business.

Julia Felton is a leadership and team specialist with a passion for hospitality and tourism. Business owners and leaders hire her to transform their results by unleashing the hidden potential in their organisations. Extra-ordinary results are achieved through building powerful, engaged teams and creating organisational alignment.
