Hospitality and tourism SMEs offered free leadership workshop

Julia Felton

SMEs in hospitality and tourism are being offered a free leadership workshop to get a flavour of the training available through The Skills Service which is eligible for 40% funding from the European Social Fund.

In conjunction with Make It York, The Skills Service surveyed the sector on the skills they feel are most in demand, and the overwhelming answer was leadership. The workshop, ‘Leadership in the hospitality and tourism sector’ will take place at York’s Micklegate Social on Thursday 26th September. Businesses can book up to four places per workshop per company.

Business HorsePower, a specialist training provider in leadership and management and contracted training providers of The Skills Service, will provide the tailored workshop.

Trainer Julia Felton says Millennials and Gen Z are estimated to make up over half the world’s population and together account for most of the global workforce. As this demographic is one of the sector’s largest sources of manpower, the planned session will delve into how to engage them so they deliver more productivity and profitability to a business.

The Skills Service offers a unique package of training and support for SMEs in the Leeds City Region including 40% funding towards training, sourcing the right courses or opportunities and free advice on the kind of training needed to achieve business goals.
