On Tuesday 6 December Giles Hawke, Sales Director for Carnival UK, visited the Barnes Lecture Theatre at Bournemouth University to give a presentation that proved to be interesting and very informative.
Tourism and Leisure students from the University were treated to insights from Hawke's experiences of what it is like to work within a cruise company, how they interact with customers and the challenges that are faced in growing the business.
Simon Thomas, Senior Lecturer in Hospitality Management, was very pleased with the details and issues raised regarding the 'current data and statistics on the sector'.
Hawke, who's previous positions include being Commercial Director for Highlife Breaks and Sales Director for Crystal Holidays and Jetsave (part of the TUI group), was a success with students and staff alike.
