Islands’ Partnership members are invited to attend a Networking Event at Tregarthen’s Hotel next Wednesday, 11th December, 10.30am – 2.00pm.  This is the first of what will become regular networking events to give you the opportunity to listen to and quiz eminent guest speakers from the tourism sector and business community. The keynote speaker at this event will be Robin Barker, Chief Executive Officer Services for Tourism Ltd which managed this year's Cornwall Tourism Awards, Fellow of the Tourism Management Institute and previous Head of Marketing at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth. His presentation entitled “Isles of Scilly: Observations & Opportunities” will provide invaluable insight into how best we can present our businesses, and make the most of sustainable marketing and social media to build a better future. He will be followed by Jenifer Littman MBE, Chief Executive for Tourism for All UK. She will offer practical advice and positive evidence for delivering improved accessibility across the islands.  Finally, Rob Baldry, Director Flexis Hospitality Solutions who has previously worked with Legoland in Windsor, and the Regal and Corus Hotel chains will deliver useful tips on how businesses can maximise revenue and improve profitability. “This is a fantastic opportunity for members of the Islands’ Partnership to pick the brains of gurus from tourism and tourism-related businesses who have comprehensive industry knowledge on a national scale,” says Amanda Pender, Islands’ Partnership Tourism Coordinator.  “We are delighted to offer this opportunity to members as a fundamental benefit of their support for the Islands’ Partnership.” The event will wrap up with a finger buffet lunch – an opportunity for all members to network with the guest speakers and among themselves in a relaxed, festive environment.
