As Beaches Turks and Caicos celebrates the start of a new year filled with promise of growth and impact, the World’s Leading All-Inclusive Family Resort Brand reflects on the achievements of 2023 and the incredible work of the resort team.

Having established a path of consistent career growth for all team members within the industry, BTC, through its many training and development programmes continues to provide numerous advancement opportunities both internally and regionally.

Julianna Musgrove, Regional Manager for the Learning and Development for the TCI and the Bahamas, continues to soar in her professional pursuits.

“The year 2023 has been an absolute dream for me. I have been given the opportunity to serve the Northern Caribbean region as a leader. The personal and professional growth of our team members across the resort has seen a steady increase that augurs well for this year’s goal of continued improvement,” Musgrove shared.

In 2023, Julianna became the first BTC resort leader to win the Rising Star Award for the Caribbean by the International Society of Hospitality Consultants.

As the resort consistently provides unmatched service to its many guests, equal focus is placed on programmes impacting communities across the Turks and Caicos Islands. The Sandals Foundation, through partnerships and sponsorships, enhances the educational, economical, environmental and professional growth of many residents within this archipelago.

The Sandals Foundation for 2023 increased its partnership with various communities and organisations. Students from schools in South Caicos, North Caicos, Middle Caicos and Providenciales were recipients of educational supplies throughout the period. Christmas treats, clean-up exercises, tree planting, the Reading Road Trip and the Great Shape Dental outreach initiative providing free dental care to more than 5000 residents, were some of the philanthropic activities that had major impact across the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Over the past year, BTC continued its impact on youth development as the resort, through its food and beverage department hosted another successful Young Chefs programme which saw youngsters being exposed to the culinary field. Career fairs and the annual internship programme saw an increase in the number of participants in 2023 with some of the interns acquiring permanent positions at the resort.

BTC also hosted the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) Youth Congress Debate and the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) conference attended by regional ministers of tourism, tourism leaders as well as travel advisors across North America and Caribbean.

These events saw attendees exploring and learning more about the TCI.

“It is evident that the success of our endeavours rests upon the dedication and involvement of our team members, ten of whom were nominees of the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association’s 15 th Annual Star Awards. Their unwavering commitment to excellence has propelled us to new heights. Beyond our achievements, we take pride in our philanthropic efforts, knowing that our contributions surpass the boundaries of hospitality, enriching the lives of those in need,” shared BTC’s Managing Director, James McAnally.
