Kusa Cast – An Interview with Adele Mackenzie
HOT OFF THE PRESS!
Recorded earlier today, Adele Mackenzie of Tourism Update discussed many of the current stories in the tourism industry. We chose to release this podcast early as we discuss the latest stories and trends in the industry.
Join industry experts Adele Mackenzie and Graeme Watson for an inspiring journey as they discuss the world of tourism. Listen to their discussions of the global industry, its resilience during crisis, and how to prepare for the future.
With topics like creating jobs, eliminating visa and transportation barriers, and the importance of storytelling, this podcast is an essential resource for those interested in the tourism industry both nationally and internationally.
Adele has seen the industry through some of its toughest times. In 1994, Adele started out as a journalist for the first black community newspaper in the Free State and as a freelancer. Since then, she has risen to the forefront of the industry and become a respected figure in the tourism world.
Adele and the podcast host, Graeme Watson, discussed the importance of spreading the word about the industry and the stories that people are relating to. She also believes that the tourism industry in Southern Africa needs extra focus in order to create more jobs and small businesses. She hopes to see national government take tourism seriously and eliminate major barriers such as visas and transport licenses.
Despite the difficult times, Adele has hope for the future of the tourism industry in the country. She has learned to be flexible and adaptable in any situation and to not take things for granted. Graeme suggests that people plan for the worst and hope for the best in order to be prepared for any situation. Furthermore, the tourism industry in Southern Africa is relatively young, having only been around for about 30 years. The industry has proven its strength and resilience during the last three years of crisis.
Adele Mackenzie and Tourism Update are determined to keep the industry alive and thriving, and they do not intend to stop anytime soon. The industry has come a long way and will continue to do so with the right support.
