At the beginning of the travel season, Tourism Burlington offers an Industry Ambassador Training session for front line and/or new staff. This free half-day session features guest speakers from various attractions in the city (see below). Participants also tour some of the downtown local attractions including the Art Gallery of Burlington, Joseph Brant Museum, Burlington Performing Arts Centre and St. Luke’s Church. The morning finishes with discussion and a video about the importance of customer service. The goal is to ensure that staff are knowledgeable about what Burlington has to offer, so they can encourage visitors to stay longer in the city and enjoy all the attractions, events, shopping, dining and other activities. Participants receive a certificate and pin upon completion of the session.
