Nassau, Bahamas – The newest recruits to the BTC Divas and Dudes promotional team were officially inducted last night at a Welcome Reception at Nassau’s Luciano’s restaurant. The mix’n mingle event included a motivational talk by international Super Model and ‘Real Housewife of Atlanta’ star, Cynthia Bailey. The General Manager of the Sheraton Resort, Edward Baten was also on hand with words of encouragement and career tips for BTC’s newest team members.
The Divas & Dudes programme was developed three years ago to provide support at BTC’s many sales and marketing events. To be selected as a Diva or Dude, applicants must first undergo an intensive screening and interview process followed by a mini etiquette course. Carole Barnett, manager of BTC’s events and promotions who spearheads the initiatives, said she looks for young men and women with appropriate social graces and behaviour skills to represent the company.
“Our new ‘Diva’s and Dude’s are attractive, personable and well-mannered and already professionally employed. They help us at our weekend and evening events, adding a touch of glamour and sophistication.”
