The British Virgin Islands Tourist Board (BVITB) is inviting professionals working as waiters and waitresses in full service restaurants throughout the Territory to register for an upcoming training seminar, to be held Dec. 7-8 and again 9-10.

Acting Director of the Tourist Board, Hadassah Ward said the training is anticipated to further enhance the experiences of visitors dining at any restaurant in the Territory. Ward further explained that the workshop will help service professionals understand themselves and others and learn ways of doing their job to the best of their abilities when interacting with varied customers and situations.

Business Development Coordinator, Jamila Vanterpool expanded on the particulars of the training. ‘The training will seek to improve every aspect of service delivery; from greeting guests, knowing their menus and beverages, interacting with guests, communicating with coworkers, the sequence of service, sending guests off and even correct restaurant opening and closing procedures.’ The Business Development Unit of the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board is responsible for researching and implementing training needs for the Territory’s tourism industry.
