PRESIDENT & FOUNDER OF ENGAGE TOURISM - STEVEN GOULD

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference" - Robert Frost

 

Travel was always more than just a hobby – it is his BIGGEST passion. As owner of Goulds Travel, he learned early in his career that travel is not just a way to see another destination. It’s about creating immersive experiences that will change your life!

 

It is said that travel is the one thing you buy that actually makes you richer, and he believes that to be true. He started working in this industry 10 years ago and made it his mission to learn as much about the travel industry as possible, but the adventure-seeker in him took it to a whole new level!

 

Over the years, Steven obtained his CTC & ECC, he has jumped out of planes, zip-lined through rainforests, cruised through the history of Europe, saw the scenery of Asia, the riches of the Middle East, and relaxed on Caribbean beaches. Each of these experiences provided a different perspective by venturing into new destinations, learning about different cultures, and coming back with a piece of him that wasn't there before he left.

 

His favorite destination is Paris, France because of the vibrant history, old-world architecture, and romantic ambiance of the immersive culture.

 

“I always encourage agents to learn, experience, and grow in this amazing industry. We are afforded so many opportunities and I hope Engage Tourism enhances those opportunities for years to come!”

Engage Tourism was founded in 2020 due to an innate need for education and engagement within the hospitality and tourism industry. While there may be many similar organizations crafted to a specific niche in the industry, none focused on the collaboration of veteran professionals and the younger generation of travel & hospitality professionals.

Engage Tourism was developed to bridge the gap for those who are willing to share their industry knowledge and those seeking it.
