03 /09/ 2013 Comments are Closed

victorian small business Insight Communications has been named the first recipient of the Victoria Tourism Industry Council’s (VTIC) Small Business Development Award, a new award designed to support industry and professional development within the tourism and events sector.

The award was presented at the Victoria Tourism Week Leadership Dinner at the State Library of Victoria, which was attended by industry leaders with special guest Tony Wheeler, cofounder of Lonely Planet.

Victoria-based Insight Communications demonstrates the potential for leadership and development within the tourism industry.

Specialising in Aboriginal tourism development, the grant will enable Rachel Donovan from Insight Communications to explore partnership development with the Aboriginal tourism sector.

Ms Donovan will study the practices of Aboriginal tourism enterprises interstate which have formed successful partnerships with non-Indigenous business and mainstream tourism operators.

“Insight Communications demonstrates the value that small businesses bring to our vibrant industry,” says VTIC Chief Executive Dianne Smith.

“VTIC is committed to supporting these businesses to grow and innovate, and this award is a great way for us to encourage industry and professional development within the sector.”

The Small Business Award is presented to a VTIC member with 19 or fewer employees, who demonstrates potential for leadership and innovation. The successful business will receive $10,000 to be used in development such as training, mentoring, partnership creation or exchange.

The Victoria Tourism Leadership Dinner is one of the events featured throughout Victoria Tourism Week 2-7 September, which celebrates the success and potential of Victoria’s tourism industry.
