Abstract (150 Words)

The PhD is an expensive process, currently centred on building researcher knowledge and skill.

Yet it trains only one element of the professional mix required to shape contemporary, and future, tourism issues.

It is timely to extend the model as a networked knowledge exchange hub for all emerging tourism leaders.
