This week on the ‘That Bad Review’ podcast series, we present the third episode in the Southern NSW, Visitor Economy Bushfire Recovery Summit podcast series. Episode three begins with a conversation between Adrian and Graeme Haycraft. Graeme was instrumental in the tourism recovery efforts on behalf of the Murrindindi and Mitchell Shire Councils, after the Black Saturday Fires of 2009. Graeme shares some great advice, based on his own experience in crisis management and disaster recovery processes.
In the second half of the podcast, Adrian chats with Jeremy Wilshire, the Major Events Manager for Destination Wollongong. Jeremy was the MC at the Bushfire Recovery Summit. Throughout the event, Jeremy encouraged attendees to contribute their ideas to an action wall. At the end of the event, the ideas were collated into topics and discussed. These ideas formed the basis of feedback from the summit, which was provided to the appropriate government organisations. Jeremy and Adrian discuss some of this feedback on the podcast episode.
Each Monday, join Adrian Easdown as he has enlightening chats with leaders within the accommodation, tourism & hospitality industries around the globe, on the first podcast of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
If you own, manage or work in the tourism and hospitality industry, or own a retail business, especially if you have been affected by any kind of natural disaster or catastrophic event, this is one podcast you won’t want to miss.
