Culture & Leisure

Culture, art and recreation flow seamlessly together. Art is serious business and sells itself or has to be subsidised. Culture is a broad concept and includes literature, music, design and moving images, theatre, television, radio. Budgets are being squeezed, regulations are complex, as is governance. The people needed to lead these organisations properly have to be highly skilled. Fundraising, social engagement and an institution focused on creative solutions, the ability to deal with ambiguity; these are very important qualities for the leaders of these organisations. Recreation is a market of theme parks and hotels. There are many aspects of complete digitalisation in this world (e.g. booking and reservation sites) that affect the business model and eat into margins, including those for the innovation of attractions with the most advanced technology.
