Go with Tourism EP08: The Itinerary – Sustainability

In this episode Megan discusses sustainable tourism with industry professionals who are leading the way in this space.

On our first panel, Jacqui Wilkinson (Adventure Capital NZ) and Trent Yeo (Ziptrek Ecotours New Zealand) explore how the tourism industry can improve, what they’re doing in their respective businesses and tips and tricks others can learn from.

Then we have Lynn Robinson (Tourism Industry Aotearoa) and Paul Yeo (Tourism New Zealand) chatting about the Tourism Sustainability Commitment and Tiaki Promise, two great initiatives established to help our tourism industry, how New Zealand is doing in comparison to the rest of the world, and what their hopes are for our future generations of tourism workers.

As always, we are joined by Strengths-Based Coach, Jason Biggs, who will give his advice on progressing your development; and Kate Godfrey of Madison Recruitment gives her tips on hiring staff.

Finally, our success story today focuses on The Hotel Britomart, New Zealand’s first ever 5-star Green Hotel.
