“I had just graduated with my DBA when I started the Appleton Greene Learning Provider Program. I had good qualifications, but little in the way of experience, but I had a very good idea about the programs that I wanted to develop and I believed that they were unique and this helped in terms of getting me accepted onto the program. It proved to be a very good way for me to gain the experience that I was looking for and I was able to work with a portfolio of major clients instead of just working my way up the corporate ladder, one company at a time. I was also able to work at a much more senior level and it has provided me with plenty of quality content for my resume. The nice thing about Appleton Greene is that once your programs have been developed and established, it is always something that you can continue to do. If I want to do other things in the future I can do and I can still enjoy a professional association with Appleton Greene at the same time. I envisage that Appleton Greene will always be a significant part of my career in the future.”

Tourism is travel for recreational, leisure, or business purposes, usually of a limited duration. Tourism is commonly associated with trans-national travel, but may also refer to travel to another location within the same country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourists as people “traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes”. The direct contribution of Travel & Tourism to the world economy has grown by 3.1%, contributing US$2.2 trillion to world gross domestic product (GDP) and 101 million jobs.

“The world has become a much smaller place. It is much easier for many people to travel and they do so for business and pleasure with increasing regularity. This has resulted in more international and less provincial thinking and corporate training within our organization needs to reflect this. It is no surprise that many traditional educational programs such as MBAs have become more international and enable students to study in two or three different international locations during their study terms. Online training has also encouraged international collaboration. However, at Appleton Greene, they have truly embraced this philosophy through it’s business partnering with hundreds of learning providers and consultants who all work remotely from a variety of different international locations and this has proven to be a masterstroke and consolidates their unique global positioning.”
