Let's talk tal­ent...

Onboard Hospitality - - Welcome - Julie Bax­ter Ed­i­tor, On­board Hos­pi­tal­ity

Sit­ting at the heart of the on­board hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try, bring­ing buy­ers and sup­pli­ers to­gether through our pages, it never ceases to amaze me how small con­ver­sa­tions and fledg­ling con­nec­tions grow into mas­sive col­lab­o­ra­tions and multi-mil­lion pound con­tracts.

Ours is a 'peo­ple' busi­ness, a busi­ness ut­terly de­pen­dent on mak­ing the right con­nec­tions, meet­ing the right peo­ple and find­ing ways to nav­i­gate com­plex routes from draw­ing board to mar­ket. It's an ex­hil­a­rat­ing busi­ness which many new­com­ers want to join and this month we are proud to launch the On­board Hos­pi­tal­ity Men­tor­ing Net­work to help. This ini­tia­tive is de­signed to en­cour­age cre­ative new tal­ent into our in­dus­try and give those al­ready well-es­tab­lished the chance to share their knowl­edge, de­velop best prac­tice and draw in the best tal­ent. You can read more about the Net­work on page 6 and we hope you will want to get in­volved.

To show our com­mit­ment to rein­vest­ing in our in­dus­try's peo­ple we are also un­veil­ing two men­tor­ing grants worth £9,000 which will sup­port the Net­work's ac­tiv­i­ties by shar­ing a pro­por­tion of the fees we gen­er­ate through the On­board Hos­pi­tal­ity Awards. Check out these grants on page 9, get in­volved and let's con­tinue those many small con­ver­sa­tions that to­gether en­sure this in­dus­try's long-term suc­cess.
