Skål UK looks to the future

Skål London and Skål UK have just voted in two new Presidents and they are both determined to attract more young people into the tourist industry and to promote the benefits of belonging to this unique global network of tourism professionals.

UK President, Alison Partridge, and London President, Paul Hoskins, are keen to make the thousands of young people who work in the UK tourist industry more aware of Skål and take advantage of its international network as they develop their careers.

“Skål International is an amazing global resource”, says Paul Hoskins. “For instance, one of our young Skål members, Izzy McHarg, decided last year to get married and relocate to Australia. She used the Skål website to make contact with other members in Sydney and this led to her being successfully interviewed for a managerial position with a major hotel group on her arrival down under, where she now lives.”

Meanwhile, Alison Partridge is hard at work promoting the International Young Skal’ Congress which will be held in Bucharest, Romania’s ‘Little Paris’, on the 24th and 25th April. The theme of this Congress is ‘Young Skål is Our Future’ and the agenda focuses on what Skål International, and the global tourism industry, will look like in 2020.

“The cost of attending this symposium has been set really low and we are going to contribute towards the air fare for at least two young Skål delegates to enable them to travel to Bucharest and represent Skål UK at this important event,” concludes Alison.
