go2HR’s Winning Pitch is a competition where post-secondary students pitch business plans to develop a local tourism activity. The competition is an opportunity for the next bright young stars of the industry to apply their strategic thinking to come up with a tourism business or service idea based on a local, realistic scenario related to the support of the destination development in each host region.
The competition sponsors, The Partners in Tourism Society and Destination BC, are supporting regional competitors in bringing new ideas to the table. The winning team from the Thompson Okanagan region will receive $500 and move on to compete against other regional winners at the 2019 Tourism Industry Conference in Vancouver.
Employers: mentor a student team
Are you a tourism entrepreneur looking to support the next generation of tourism professionals? Mentor a local student team competing in the Winning Pitch in the Thompson Okanagan region!
The team must develop and pitch a high-level business concept for a product or service that supports the theme chosen for this year’s topic. The winning Thompson Okanagan team gets to compete at provincials against three other regional winning teams at the 2019 Tourism Industry Conference.
You can support your assigned team for up to four hours total. This time may be divided up as you and the team wishes: support during brainstorming, concept preparation and/or review phase. Mentorship can take place in person, via video-conferencing or by phone.
