Excellent, as ever. Thank you, Fabienne, Liz, and Rob King. Cannot recommend Tourism Tribe training highly enough and will definitely be renewing my Membership in April.

I really enjoyed listening to both presenters. I just have to now start getting familiar with google and also see how our website rates. Just baby steps for me first off. BUT today I am spending the day taking images of new art and didgeridoos we have obtained in the last month so our website has products people are looking for. I will though put up a block about Manuel our guide for the cultural experience who is going to be on Australian story next Monday!!!! I think that rates a mention. Cheers
