Today, the CEO of Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA), Shannon Stowell, is here to talk about the future of travel. While no one knows what’s exactly going to happen in the future, Shannon weighs in with his expert opinion on how COVID-19 will affect the sector, what the future holds, and how companies should proceed. Shannon explains his 1.0 to 4.0 outlook [5:47] and how he believes other entrepreneurs will be affected during this uncertain time. Here at Border Free Media, we have been using this time to get projects done that we kept pushing off (cue our latest video tool we created just for you!) [8:40]. We discuss why we don’t want to go back to normal [10:10] and how we can use this time to improve the industry [10:16]. Shannon then describes his vision for responsible tourism [10:47]. We dive into what type of content business owners should be delivering to their consumers right now [18:13] and Shannon gives insight about his TED Talk. He gives tips on how to do good for local communities when you travel [22:43]. Lastly, we talk about how to achieve a work-life balance, because that is, after all, what workingWELL is all about.
