Mind the Gap – Keep People Inspired Event in November

Category: Hotels|Tourism, Posted:22 Oct 2022 | 08:50 am

Keep People Inspired (KPI) is the second in a series of Mind the Gap Learning events. The focus of the event is on inclusiveness in hospitality, spanning Phuket’s hotels, tourism and service industries. Inclusiveness is a key element of businesses that rely heavily on human resources and is in effect all about people, whether they are the ones working or guests and customers.

KPI topics will include important issues such as gender equality, diversity, inclusion, and an increasingly critical focus on mental wellbeing at home and in the workplace.  We will also cover personal development and how to upskill and move ahead with career goals including entrepreneurism.

This special three-hour learning session offers an amazing set of talented speakers and talks meant to show how to break down barriers, develop ideas and spur personal growth. It is also an opportunity to network, make new contacts and strengthen ties in the Phuket business community. The event welcomes everyone with an interest in hotels, tourism and hospitality, human resources, life learning and creating positive change.
