WiT Virtual: Unsung Heroes: Power To The People

21 May 2020  |  11am–12pm Singapore Time (GMT+8)


In this episode, we celebrate the courage, creativity and compassion of the human spirit in travel.


We meet four entrepreneurs from four different countries representing four different sectors – a traditional travel leisure operator, a private island owner and operator, a local OTA and a Professional Conference Organiser.


Each of them have amazing stories to tell of how they have tried to save jobs, how they are protecting staff livelihoods during a time of drought, how they are fighting to save their business, how they are staying alive to fight another day – that day when travel and the meetings business return – and how they are preparing for a post Covid-19 world.


It is these kinds of stories and the people behind them that makes travel so resilient.
