A spokesperson said, “Job seekers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses in Bermuda are invited to attend a webinar hosted this Friday by the Bermuda Tourism Authority in conjunction with SailGP.

“The free 75-minute information session, scheduled from 3.30pm to 4.45pm on January 8, includes an overview and panel discussion focused on potential jobs and opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises [SMEs] in the lead-up to the inaugural SailGP Bermuda Grand Prix presented by Hamilton Princess on April 24 and April 25, 2021.”

“Featured panelists at the webinar will include BTA Interim CEO Glenn Jones; SailGP Event Director Jennie Kim; SailGP Head of Marketing & Innovation Michael Porter; SailGP Community Steering Committee Deputy Chair Mark Clarke; and committee member Jamari Douglas of the Bermuda Business Development Agency [BDA].”

Mr. Jones said, “We encourage anyone interested in exploring local employment or entrepreneurial opportunities around this exciting global event to join us as we talk with SailGP experts and local leaders involved in community engagement.

“We’ve asked our partners to slightly delay some of the RFP submission deadlines to ensure we reach the widest possible audience about these opportunities.”

        That’s not quite what KPMG concluded, but if you say so.

        • Toodle-oo says:

          If by now you don’t recognise sarcasm on line maybe you should re-evaluate your participation !

      I guess you don’t want Bermuda and small business to succeed. Go back to school and learn how Bermuda’s economy works. We should be so lucky to have another America’s Cup here!

    This is going to be difficult, I would like to fly in for it but the rooms at HP are 7xx+ per night, restrictions on travel and the quarantine. With Elbow and FSP closed, how? I’ll try but it not looking good. PS, I’m the target audience for this and spent a fortune to see it in 2017, and I cant see how it could happen this year.

      Have you explored the airbnb option ? Lots and lots of choices available.
