Welcome to Future Focus

In celebration of Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018, we explore the journeys of a range of young people who share valuable insights and experiences of their career journey in tourism and hospitality to date.  Tapping into the passion and ambition of young people working in the industry, our Future Focus series will spotlight a number of individuals throughout the year. Below is a series of videos and blogs that give you the chance to meet a range of young tourism ambassadors.  

Are there opportunities to celebrate young people within your own organisation?  Are you inspiring the next generation within your own business direct or through educational links? Do you know a young person who shows real promise as a rising star in the industry?  We want to hear about them so join the conversation #FutureFocus #YOYP2018 and watch this space as we feature even more tourism champions as the year progresses.
