I daresay you were as taken aback as me by the influx of visitors to our region this weekend. It is great to see that people are eager to visit our region and spending their money with our tourism businesses. We are, however, mindful that some members of our community feel vulnerable to a surge in COVID-19 cases.
In this edition, we have a few webinars (yeah we’re sick of them too, but these are good ones) that might interest you.. There are marketing opportunities, grants, and more.
So, ScoMo wants the economy to reopen quickly, but Daniel Andrews is more cautious. While I want visitors to come back and businesses to reopen, and today’s announcement is a step in the right direction, it does not quite open the region for tourism.
The Chair of the Board to which I report recently sent me a great little video on ‘Optimism vs Positivity’ last week. It’s by a guy who you may have heard of, named Simon Sinek, who is truly brilliant. If you haven’t seen his Ted Talks, do yourself a favour. This video is one minute long – have a look here.
