There is a huge amount of innovation at play in the theme park industry. Behind those innovations are great ideas and influencers who make things happen. In this industry, getting it wrong can be hugely damaging in a very public way.
Beyond having a great idea, you must believe in that idea and have the drive to follow it through and convince those around you that it’s going to work.
Creativity, drive, the ability to absorb information and make judgements based on the evidence are important qualities every influencer must have. The biggest influencers are often those who lead with consistency, insistence on the highest standards and openness to innovation make them stand out. They are the kind of people who can quickly assess what will or will not work and whose judgement is widely respected beyond their immediate colleagues and has a resounding impact on the wider industry.
