FREE ONLINE FORUM – “Danger Will Robinson” Watch Party
August 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFree
Join your TTRA community for an online watch party and subsequent discussion of Chair of Pacific Asia Travel Association, Dr. Chris Bottrill’s, incredible presentation, “Danger Will Robinson”: The Future of Human Capital Development,” originally shown at the TTRA Annual Conference this past June. We will gather together to view and then discuss our takeaways and opinions on this timely and important topic.
The tourism sector has been slow to react to the changes that are happening in human capital development content and delivery. This article highlights some of the shifts that robotics, AI, and access to information are having on jobs in tourism and the future of work. By highlighting emerging trends in the sector and skills to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution, we can identify what we should focus on as an industry during this period of transition and uncertainty. We need to capitalize on the digital delivery skills we have developed due to COVID-19 and build new content and accessible learning. The workforce and the work environment have changed, how can tourism keep pace and thrive in the challenges we face in the sector?
Dr. Chris Bottrill, Chair of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA), and Director, International at Capilano University, Vancouver BC.
