Tourism management requires the ability to look outwards and capitalise on opportunities.

We provide both consultancy/mentorship programs and specialized short-term training events for start ups and everyone who want to (further) develop entrepreneurial skills in tourism and hospitality .

Our clients develop organisational and business skills that take into account the diversity of cultures involved in this global industry. They also develop their abilities in research, time management and presentation methods.

If you are interested to join us, we will invite you to proceed to a supervised self-assessment. Before you proceed with your development, you will need to determine whether the unique nature of the tourism sector is compatible with your business goals. Also, if this is your first entrepreneurial foray, you need to consider whether the risks and rewards of operating a business suit you.

Ask yourself:

  • Why do I want to start my own business?
  • What are the key drivers?
  • What skills do I bring?
  • What outcome do I want to achieve?
  • What are the financial goals for the business? 
  • Is it to replace a salaried position, suggesting a lifestyle business?
  • Is it to achieve a more substantial financial reward, suggesting a growth business?

Our Services include:

  • One-on-One Business Advisory Support to new entrepreneurs and existing tourism operators wanting to enhance or innovate their tourism product;
  • Business Plan Critique Service: using one-on-one discussions with a Tourism Division official to get the most from the business plan;
  • Tourism Entrepreneurial Seminars, set up with regional partners and offering ideas and tips on starting or expanding tourism business. Key stakeholders provide an overview of their services, key industry trends and innovation possibilities, which can include information on obtaining regulatory approvals, financing, business planning support services and tourism sector initiatives that support entrepreneurial activity. Following the seminars, participants have the opportunity to network, discuss their opportunity and obtain advice or schedule further one-on-one meetings.
