Attracting Future Leaders: Line-up Complete

Three Members from ITT’s Education and Training Committee – Danny Waine, Lee Ainsworth and Louie Davies – will complete the line-up for the ‘Attracting Future Leaders’ panel debate at this year’s Conference. Joining Claire Steiner, Eleanor Greatorex and Katy Varty, they will explore how your business can attract top talent, as well as the opportunities to be gained from encouraging non-graduate and apprenticeship level entry into the travel industry. A key session for the ITT Conference, it is set to provide an engaging and thought-provoking discussion. You can read their biographies below:
