Testimonials

“The SHRM-sponsored trip to Cuba was a fantastic experience; it not only focused on fostering understanding business relations between the U.S. and Cuba, but also offered rich exposure to the Cuban culture.

It was a very meaningful travel experience where a group of HR professionals who began as strangers in a foreign land, built a strong network, formed friendships and left with deep knowledge of how HR practices are carried out in Cuba. Most importantly, memorable experiences were created.”

Zaira Goodman, CHRO, Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority


“The executive HR Delegation trip sponsored by SHRM and provided by To Cuba Now, an authorized and licensed educational exchange provide, is a fabulous professional, cultural, educational, business, diplomatic and culinary experience. Mr. Chris Cupples and Mr. Nick York esq. are masters of Cuban protocols, transportation, accommodations, venue and itinerary. Their To Cuba Now team ensured our group’s five-day trip was fun-filled yet jam packed with a comprehensive overview of economic, social, cultural, educational and political realities and opportunities. All the arrangements, venues and transportation were perfect – 5 stars!

Cuba is in the first phase of “Glasnost” and this trip is a must for any global HR Executive who is involved in the business of education, cultural exchange, humanitarian relief, agriculture, hospitality, agriculture equipment, logistics, music, art, global commerce, transportation, health care or energy. As a bonus, you make life-long friends!”
