Seeking Employer Mentorship for Regional Winning Pitch Student Teams in the Thompson Okanagan Area

Are you a tourism business owner/operator or general manager interested in getting involved in supporting the next generation of tourism professionals? Mentor a local student team competing in the Thompson Okanagan Regional Winning Pitch competition!

The team must develop and pitch a high-level business concept for a product or service that supports this year’s theme. The winning Thompson Okanagan team gets to compete at the provincial competition against three other regional winning teams at the 2019 Tourism Industry Conference.

You can support your assigned team for up to four hours total. This time may be divided up as you and the team wishes: support during brainstorming, concept preparation and/or review phase. Mentorship can take place in person, via video-conferencing or by phone.

Deadline to express mentorship interest: Oct. 10, 2018. If you are interesting in becoming a mentor or have questions about this program, please contact:
