Providenciales, 5 Nov 2014 – Tourism follows the ebbs and flows or ups and downs or booms and busts of the financial world… and the six to seven year cycles and the data to dictate trends in those cycles must be closely studied. Dr. Carolyn Hayle is a programme director at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus and was the keynote speaker at the opening of the National Tourism Symposium. Dr. Hayle brought a riveting rally for government to pay attention to the details and try to figure out how to keep more money in the country.
Dr. Hayle is a near 20 year educator and so another strong thrust in her presentation was on training as she encouraged the private sector to angle for the residual energy of their staff, so that they easily go that extra mile. Also presenting at the two day National Tourism Symposium held at Beaches Resort Villages and Spa was the Executive Director of CDEMA; he said Disaster preparedness has everything to do with tourism. Ronald Jackson reminded of the plethora of risks and said governments must formulate plans to mitigate any fall out.
