Victoria University’s School for the Visitor Economy is pleased to invite you to join us for a public lecture by Professor Emerita, Pauline J Sheldon.

Based at the University of Hawai’i, Pauline is internationally acclaimed in tourism research. Her lecture will focus on how profound economic changes are forcing tourism decision-makers to seek new models and new paradigms to successfully navigate the future. In the context of problems such as overtourism and climate change, the presentation will suggest that new drivers of success beyond profit are necessary for destinations to thrive.

Pauline holds a PhD in Economics, an MBA, and a BS in Mathematics. Her research areas include CSR, social entrepreneurship, sustainable tourism, knowledge management in tourism, and wellness tourism. Most recently she has published a book entitled Social Entrepreneurship in Tourism, and the third edition of Tourism Information Technology with Benckendorff and Xiang has just been released.

She is the first woman recipient of the UNWTO Ulysses prize, the TTRA Lifetime Achievement Award, and Hannes Werthner IFITT Lifetime Achievement Award.

She was the first and only woman President of the International Academy for the Study of Tourism, and also co-founded TRINET and the Tourism Education Futures Initiative (TEFI).
