Video Interview – Sharing My Views on COVID-19 Impact with CATO

As the fallout over the COVID-19 pandemic reverberates around the world, the travel & tourism industry continues to experience huge social, economic and environmental fallout.

In the process of evaluating how best to react and respond to the virus’ impact, one of our industry’s strengths has been the ability to share in our experiences, best-practises and local knowledge.

To this end, I was grateful to share thoughts with CATO (Council of Australian Tour Operators) in a recent interview with WellTravelled publisher Brent Rees.

As a council member of AITO (Association of Independent Tour Operators) – the UK’s equivalent of CATO – although we are at opposite ends of the world, it is amazing how the impact of such a disease so succinctly affects us all.
