Webinar to highlight SailGP Bermuda jobs and opportunities
Job seekers, entrepreneurs and small businesses in Bermuda who want to hear about potential jobs and opportunities connected to the inaugural SailGP Bermuda Grand Prix are invited to attend a webinar on Friday.
The free, 75-minute information session is hosted by the Bermuda Tourism Authority in conjunction with SailGP, and includes an overview and panel discussion focused on potential jobs and opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises in the lead-up to the SailGP Bermuda Grand Prix presented by Hamilton Princess, which will be held on April 24 and 25.
Panellists will include Glenn Jones, BTA interim chief executive officer; SailGP event director Jennie Kim; SailGP head of marketing and innovation Michael Porter; SailGP community steering committee deputy chairman Mark Clarke; and committee member Jamari Douglas, of the Bermuda Business Development Agency.
Mr Jones said: “We encourage anyone interested in exploring local employment or entrepreneurial opportunities around this exciting global event to join us as we talk with SailGP experts and local leaders involved in community engagement. We’ve asked our partners to slightly delay some of the RFP submission deadlines to ensure we reach the widest possible audience about these opportunities.”
The BTA is the official host partner for the launch of SailGP’s season two, when the global league stages a four-week training camp in Bermuda followed by its two-day, live-televised event on the waters of the Great Sound.
SailGP’s eight national teams will participate, with professional sailors and their entourages coming from Australia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the United States.
The webinar is scheduled for 3.30pm to 4.45pm on Friday, January 8.
