I’ve always admired his ability to create, nurture and communicate a vision for change – all in the pursuit of creating a more impactful and sustainable tourism industry. He has a real skill in bringing people together, to collaborate and to galvanise action towards a common goal. Chris is also a lot of fun to work with and I’ve certainly appreciated his endless enthusiasm and strong encouragement over the years”.

"Just a short note to let you know how much you have impacted my life in 2020! Outside of the really great relationships I have been able to establish with key stakeholders who were in that room including Roland Vorwerk and Giju Varghese, with whom I have been working closely over the past few months...I have been invited to join the SATSA board to chair their Access, Inclusion and Diversity committee!
Thank you for coming to SA and for finding and meeting with me, and most of all for giving me that platform.
I know that 2020 has been difficult, I hope that the knowledge that you have truly impacted our lives and really the future of African tourism puts a spring in your step today."
