QTIC launches 7th Young Professionals Mentoring Program
February 27, 2020

The Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC), has launched their Young Professionals Mentoring Program for the 7th year involving 40 people, both mentors and mentees from across the state.

QTIC’s Young Professional Mentoring Program offers aspiring tourism leaders an opportunity to tap into the accumulated wisdom of senior industry representatives. Mentors and mentees will go through a structured program of professional development, tailored to the mentees’ career aspirations.

QTIC Chief Executive, Daniel Gschwind advised “we don’t want to lose the experience of our outstanding tourism professionals who have built such a great industry in Queensland. By forging mentoring relationships with the next generation of leaders we can set our industry on the path to success.

“The energy and enthusiasm of both mentors and mentees is evident and fills us with great confidence that the industry is in good hands”.

Mentors and mentees from across the state will participate in the program, maintaining the regional strength of tourism in Queensland. Participants include 22 from Brisbane, one from each of Bundaberg, Capricorn, Gladstone, Gold Coast, Mackay, SQCT, Sunshine Coast, Townsville, Tropical North and Whitsundays, and two from the Outback.

Gschwind added “we are very grateful for the commitment of our mentors who can see the value of working with young professionals and we are encouraged by the dedication of the mentees who are willing to make that extra effort.”

Through all its workforce initiatives, QTIC remains committed to supporting a skilled and professional tourism business community.
