Pádraic Gilligan, CIS, CITP, DMCP, President SITE 2008

“I attended my first SITE event in 1994 and so for three decades SITE has been a constant in my life, shaping my career as an incentive travel professional and connecting me with incredible people who impacted on me both professionally and personally. I’m delighted to contribute to the NextGen fund because it’s a way to secure our future as an industry, as well as small give-back in gratitude for all that I have received."


Fay Beauchine, CITP, CITE, SITE President 1989

“ I believe in championing people at all levels in our industry. Then stepping back and watching what happens. With encouragement, our young global citizens step up and lead, they connect the dots, and blaze their own trails. SITE helped us grow our skills and leadership, take risks, and march through open doors. 

It is with gratitude that we give back to the NextGen fund.”
