Congratulations to Allison Anderson – our Company Directors Course scholarship recipient. Thanks to funding support from the Tasmanian Government, we have been able to offer a sponsored place in the Australian Institute of Company Directors' (AICD) 'Company Directors Course' to be held in Hobart in August this year. Allison is an incredibly worthy recipient.
Allison holds a Bachelor of Science ( with honours) – Geography, Master of Applied Science – Urban and Regional Planning and a PhD – Urban Design and Tourism; has lectured at two Australian universities, owned a number of research businesses throughout her career; sat on a variety of committees and has published numerous research papers and recently a book! Her list of accolades is long. Yet somehow, amongst her accomplished career, Allison has had time to build her family – being a mother of four!
We know that Allison will seize this opportunity and use it to continue to contribute considerably to the strategic direction of tourism in Tasmania. And at the same time be an amazing role model for women in the industry by supporting a diverse and inclusive culture that encourages women to strive for senior roles and board positions.
