A corporate communications manager from online media Namibia Wildlife Resorts, who has just started his new job, says the company aims to inspire young people who are society’s most active members to visit NWR’s facilities. .
Nelson Ashipala said it kept the facilities running despite the pandemic-related challenges. Ashipala’s role is to grow the NWR brand through stakeholder relationships while enhancing the customer experience with new event initiatives. “Travel allows you to connect with your inner being, it allows you to see beyond your eyes and above all, traveling allows you to see the world you never thought existed. I cringe hearing that there’s a person who’s never seen the Fish River Canyon. It shouldn’t be. It’s very beautiful out there beyond the four walls,” he noted.
With tourism being his passion and being exposed to tourism industries around the world, Ashipala hopes that with what he has learned, he can develop the NWR brand and push it to greater heights. “I travel every year. It is a personal philosophy that I have set myself and I would like to inspire my fellow Namibians to visit our facilities,” he said.
Through the incentive programs the company can offer, NWR has helped boost local travel by offering packages such as Black Friday and “My Friends Are Cooler Than Yours” initiatives.
“I’m glad these are already in motion, kudos to the team. My strategy, however, will be to continue to deliver a service that focuses on service over pricing. Getting the best service at the right price “It can be done through the creativity of making boxes that my team will be able to lead, I’m sure. We might even make a great announcement in February, who knows,” he said. Ashipala noted that he was excited about his new role, “Work is good. I’m in my first month and the challenges are already exciting,” he noted.
