Meet the newest Canterbury Young TEC Executive Committee Member

15 June 2015

Introducing Nick Dwan...

Last week Nick Dwan, Charter Manager for Red Bus became the new Christchurch based Executive Committee Member for Young TEC. CCT decided to ask him a few questions to find out a little more about him and get the low down on what's happening at Young TEC.   

What’s your job and what do you do every day?

I oversee the charter operations of Red Bus. That comprises of all Red Travel touring and cruise excursions, corporate and conference events, weddings and private group functions. We also cover Red Bus school charters, ranging from camps to sports and out of school excursions covering primary, intermediate and secondary.

What is Young TEC?

Young TEC (Tourism Export Council) is an avenue for those under 36 years of age to grow and sharpen their knowledge & skills within the tourism sector. We achieve this with networking, mentors, guest speakers at events, and development programs. I see growing relationships as a big component of succeeding in this industry.

What fun things have you planned for the Canterbury Young TECers?

We need to get all the Young TECers out of the woodwork so we can all get to know each other. We need to know who you are so we can help to promote you.

I would like to see a twice yearly, half day Canterbury famil - encompassing the tried and tested Canterbury Tourism mainstays as well as any emerging businesses.

We will also have a variety of networking events that will suit most people and hopefully introduce new people. Keeping them fresh and relevant and providing opportunities for new relationships to grow.

What’s your favourite place in Canterbury?

I can't name just one! Lake Tekapo in the winter, Hanmer Springs in the summer and camping at Peketa Beach (Kaikoura) whenever I can.

What do you like to do in Christchurch on the weekends?

Without fail my wife and I take our Chocolate Lab for a walk along Waimairi Beach. I also like to get out on my mountain bike or take my cafe racer motorcycle for a spin.

We also try and sample new restaurants and cafes when they pop up.
