Why we do it

Our Global Partners share their thoughts below on long and distinguished careers in Travel & Tourism. 
Travel is part of mankind’s DNA. Thanks to travel we meet other cultures, we discover, we learn, we trade, we create wealth for our communities. 
That is why I continue to encourage the brightest and the best young people to join our sector, to build a bright future for themselves and for the travel industry.

– Charles Petruccelli, former President of American Express Global Travel Services,
Advisor to the GTTP Board –

“My whole career has been, and continues to be, in travel and tourism. This actually happened by chance, not by choice, and in hindsight, I feel so lucky to have had that chance.
It is just a wonderful industry, it is actually a big, multi-cultural family, with its members spread around the world, sharing the same vision, values and aspirations: Passion, teamwork, care, discovery, tolerance, dedication, innovation, and so much more.
Travel continuously reinvents itself and now we are at the edge of a new era, of slow travel, local experiences, sustainable travel protecting culture and heritage.
I am convinced there has never been a better time to join this industry, a lot has been achieved, a lot has been learned, but the best is definitely yet to come.

– Michel Taride, Senior Adviser in Travel, Tourism and Mobility,
former Group President Hertz International –

“At TTC and at Red Carnation Hotels we recruit students from all over the world who look for a long and fruitful career in all aspects of hospitality and travel. This includes positions in areas such as marketing, finance and people and culture, and not just in the operational, customer-facing roles, fun and interesting as those jobs are!
We will always make an exciting career option with opportunities to travel, learn about other cultures and through hard work, progress quickly to whatever level a student aspires to get to.
Through the GTTP as well as direct links with educational establishments and communication with students, we ensure the success of the future our industry. It would be devastating if we didn’t have new talent joining the sector to take us into the future.

– Jonathan Raggett, Managing Director, Red Carnation Hotels –
