Talent Boost

The Talent Boost is a platform fully dedicated to the fields of Talent Management and talent promotion. We aim to demonstrate that a strong talent pipeline is one of the most important challenges for the future of the travel, tourism & hospitality industry.

To raise awareness of Talent Management in the industry, the WTFL Talent Boost offers CEOs, industry leaders, experts from the education sector and representatives from academia and government the opportunity to gather for a valuable and open exchange whilst gaining fresh insight into how to attract and retain young talent. 

To emphasise the significance of Talent Management, we organise a Talent Boost Event every second year in collaboration with one of our partner universities from various locations across the globe. 

WTFL Talent Boost 2018

18 May 2018 Brisbane, Australia

Hosted in collaboration with the University of Queensland Business School, the 3rd Talent Boost event drew awareness to the critical need for a strong talent pipeline for Australia's Tourism Industry and presented new and innovative approaches to attracting and sustaining a viable tourism workforce for the future.

Very enlightening and knowledgeable! The panel discussed the plight of hospitality and tourism shortcomings in such a frank way. Talent Boost is a morale booster for the hidden younger skills and mind. I wish we could have regular events like this one in Brisbane!

How can we talk about the future without including Young Talents? The Talent Boost Event in São Paulo raised the awareness for Talent Management among Brazil’s industry leaders. How enriching these conversations have been.
