  • Summary

The tourism industry is experiencing unprecedented challenges and businesses are struggling with decision inertia given the constant exogenous in?uences and changes to the sector. Uncertain times are here to stay for the foreseeable future and sadly, past tourism is no longer an indication of future tourism.

How then do you as business owners make decisions for your current realities as well as your future plans to gear up for a tourism turn-around?

BDO, in partnership with Africa Tourism Partners, invites you to a morning dialogue with our experts across all facets of the business - strategy, structure, human resources, legal and even restructuring. Our experts will focus on practical measures and insights towards sustainable interventions for those burning questions that keep you awake at night….
