Our meeting hosted Crandon Keddie form Cathie Rice Travel. It was quite sobering to hear about the very negative consequences that the COVID-19 coronavirus has had both on their industry and on their business. Cathie Rice Travel has had to be extremely adaptable in what it can now offer as opposed to the previously planned travel and cruises that they have so much expertise in. Crandon also spoke of the very negative reaction of clients and the anger and frustration that they had to manage and deal with and the impact this has had on the mental health of his team.
A great Q&A session followed his presentation and we thank Crandon for his candour. For businesses like Cathie Rice Travel it is even more essential that we support local.
Next meeting on the 20th November will se a thumb nail from our liveliest member Tony Gilfuis of Battery All Types which is sure to be entertaining.
