Meet Jolene Lammers, Our New Training Support Coordinator
We are delighted to announce that Jolene Lammers has joined the Tourism Café team as our new Training Support Coordinator. Our online search generated hundreds of applicants within the tourism sector and beyond, and our entire team participated in the hiring process and final selection. She will be replacing Diana Gould who will plans to enjoy retirement to the fullest.
Jolene is an experienced tourism professional with a secret cache of technical skills that are ideal for taking the lead on our day-to-day training activities associated with our learning management system, and participant and project support.
Her industry knowledge spans destination development, stakeholder relations and communications, brand development, website, and social media management, and she was a Tourism Resiliency Advisor supporting businesses through the COVID—19 recovery activities. Throughout Jolene’s career, her technical knowledge has supported multiple companies, and this will now be a lead role with the Tourism Cafe. As one former employer shared “She is a can-do person, with a bubbly personality, a talent for problem solving, working with technology and helping others learn.”
She will be departing the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association, for this new chapter of her career, an organization we have worked with for many years. As we prepare for this evolution in our relationships, CCCTA CEO Amy Thacker shared: “The tourism industry is at a pivotal time in staging for the future. As companies evolve and prepare for that future, many people in our industry are planning the next chapter of their career. We wish Jolene all the best in her new adventure and are happy that her talents will remain in the tourism industry.”
