Speaker Engagements

I am often invited to give speeches and presentations on Asian travel economics and tourism trends and developments.

I also participate as a panel member at travel industry conferences and webinars, and private client consultations.

Recent events include ACTE, American Chamber of Commerce Malaysia, American Club Singapore, ASEAN Tourism Research Association (ATRA), OneASEAN Investor Forum, Centro de Estudios de Turismo Chino (CESTUR China), China Daily, China Outbound Tourism Research Institute (COTRI), Smart Community Tourism, OAG Webinar, MG Group and Travel Massive Shanghai.

These took place in cities ranging from Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Shanghai to London, Madrid – and, of course online!
