The tourism entrepreneur workshop is a yearly event organised by Creative And Moving focusing on tourism & hospitality entrepreneurship. The workshop’s first edition took place on the 07/03/2018 and was an opportunity for like-minded attendees to network and make useful connections while learning about key trends and innovation possibilities in their industry. The event took place in Benoni, at the award winning Flamingo’s Nest guesthouse and conference centre; a spacious and comfortable venue allowed our attendees to relax when needed.
Speakers at the events included:
- Septi M Bukula, founder of OSIBA Management and the SEEZA network
- Natalia Rosa, marketing specialist, author and director of Big Ambitions Marketing
- Melissa Barnard, hospitality entrepreneur and owner of the Flamingos Nest guesthouse
- Terence Madurai, business manager at Nedbank.
Entrepreneur Zandi Mbatha had the opportunity to pitch her business idea and each attendee was offered a copy of the Tourism Coach, a book of Shaun Van Eck and the first business guide in South Africa written specifically for entrepreneurs in the tourism industry.
We would like to thank our speakers and attendees for their presence and feedback. The next edition of the tourism entrepreneur workshop is scheduled for the first trimester of 2019.
