Hospitality Industry is Growing Its Own

The guest on Friday, July 17 was Pierre Uteschill, who lead a brilliant discussion on the Martin County High School’s Academy of Marketing and Management and its impact on developing students for future careers in the hospitality industry.

Originally founded as the Academy of Travel and Tourism, the academy has evolved into something quite in keeping with the needs of this diverse and exciting industry.

Listen to the sho to learn what specific skills are being taught? What is the difference between and internship and on the job training? How does a student actually get into the program? What role does the Academy advisory board play in ensuring that the curriculum is in keeping with today’s trends in the hospitality industry?

As has become the norm, Talkin' Tourism co-host Robin Hicks-Connors and host Gary Guertin covered a variety of topics updating listeners on the latest Bahamas Boating Fling headed to the Abaco’s for ten days, tings to do, places to go, and what not to miss this week on the Treasure Coast.
