We must therefore seek to identify the challenges that deter us from maximizing the creative potential of our Human Resources, while creating a workplace culture that thrives on innovation,” the UWI principal said ahead of the event.During the three day conference, tourism human resources professionals from the public and private sectors, tourism educators and trainers and consultants will approach the theme from a number of angles. These include effective leadership and employee engagement, how to recognize and nurture leadership at all levels of an organisation and how to leverage resources across boundaries. An exciting workshop aimed at breathing life into the workplace has been planned. This workshop – Waking up the Tourism Workplace – is one of two intensive practical learning sessions to be presented by experts in the various fields. The other workshop will focus on innovation and creativity in the workplace. CTO is partnering with the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies and the Barbados Hospitality Institute – Hotel PomMarine, to organize the conference.Press Releaselast_img read more

first_imgBY Joe ChapmanFORMER champions Ravens secured a semi-final berth with a 74-65 victory over Plaisance Guardians, while Amelia’s Ward Jets inflicted a 80-54 whipping of Half Mile Bulls, to also qualify for the final four showdown after day two of the 6th Brusches Classic Invitational basketball championships on Sunday night at the Mackenzie Sports Club hardcourt.Playing in the first game, Ravens returned to competitive basketball with an impressive display as they held a 18-17 first quarter edge, and while they shared a 14-14 second quarter exchange, they remained slightly ahead 32-31 at half time.Ryan Stephney stepped up his game in the second half and engineered his team’s somewhat surprise win after Guardians had reached the recent Open final in Georgetown.In the third quarter, the Ravens took away the game from their opponents with a 28-9 run and they were able to stave off the final surge by the Guardians who rebounded with a 25-9 run but were unable to catch their opponents who now face Colts in the first semifinals on Friday night.Raven’s captain Ryan Stephney had a game high 26 points, while good support was received from Jermain Slater who netted 13 points while Tyrone Hamid and Ryan Gullen each contributed nine for the winners.Nikkoli Smith was the best player for Guardians with 25 points as N. Yisrael added 11 and T. Woolford 10.In the other game, Jets made light work of Half Mile Bulls with a flying start as they ended the first quarter leading 24-8 and while Bulls were able to outscore the Jets 16-15, the first half ended with Jets in the lead 39-24.They then made a move to take the game out of the Bulls sight with a 25-16 run to head into the last quarter ahead 64-40 which proved too much for the Bulls and when the final whistle came, it was smooth sailing 80-54.Akeem Kanhai was the floor leader for the Jets as Adrian Webster played well inside to top score with 14 points with Kanhai notching up 13 while Joel Webster and Donnel Benjamin added 10 apiece.For the Bulls, who missed the inside presence of Travin Dryden, Michael Turner led them with 15 points with Terron Welch getting 13 and Vibert Benjamin 12 points.Semi-finals are set for Friday when Ravens face Colts and Royals take on Jets.last_img read more
