The Partners in Tourism – TIP Society supports local efforts and initiatives that benefit future generations as well as the tourism and hospitality industry.
The Partners in Tourism – TIP Society collaborates with go2HR to connect with multiple colleges and universities throughout the province in search of students who would benefit from financial and psychological assistance in achieving their “last lap” of accreditation. Go2HR’s is working on a multi-year approach to ensure funds are distributed across the province in disciplines including adventure, culinary, hospitality and tourism, while also supporting distinct groups such as students with special needs.
The Winning Pitch
Go2HR’s Winning Pitch is an event where students work collaboratively on realistic business plans for a local tourism establishment and pitch it to a panel of professionals. Partners in Tourism – TIP Society has been a sponsor of the case competition for the past 2 years and recognizes that this initiative can build students’ strategic thinking skills and expertise to prepare them for a career in the industry.
