Carol Pierce, a Gonzales-based motivational speaker, trainer and owner of Success Now, has been named to the Bermuda Visitor Panel.

As a member of the Bermuda Visitor Panel, Pierce will provide input to influence decision making at the Bermuda Tourism Authority so the Authority can provide even better service to its island visitors, a news release said.

“I feel truly honored to have been invited to be a part of such an important panel,” said Pierce, a frequent visitor to Bermuda who presents programs on customer service.

The St. Tammany Parish Tourist and Convention Commission recently hired Pierce to speak to the region’s hotel industry on how to make visitors feel welcome.

Pierce is the author of “Jump Now,” a book outlining the critical steps to achieving success on all levels.

Pierce’s book was started on her first trip to Bermuda and completed on her second trip there.
