Collaborating to Compete

dlp courseDeveloped by Scottish Enterprise, the Destination Leaders Programme is a first in Europe and since May 2015, sixty individuals have graduated with an Executive Certificate in Destination Leadership, awarded by Edinburgh Napier University.

DLP Year 3 participants from Edinburgh and Glasgow took part in their first workshop on Destination Development on October 2015 at the University of Strathclyde Technology & Innovation Centre, Glasgow, which included presentations from Claes Bjerkne and Professor Leo Jago of the University of Surrey. 

Amanda Wrathall, Sales Manager for the EICC said: "I was absolutely delighted to be part of the 3rd Destination Leaders Programme. The group worked well together after only two meetings - and it has been interesting to learn as two very different destinations we face many of the same challenges. By sharing our experiences both cities have benefited on this joint learning journey. The quality of guest speakers has already been fantastic and I enjoyed hearing from other international experts on how to create world class destinations".
