Our new reality has opened our eyes to the need of social responsibility worldwide. This weeks’ TL Talks will examine how together, we can make this a permanent and lasting change. Much has been said about how our less intense pace of life due to the pandemic, has resulted in benefits for both our families and community around the world.

We are honored to have guests from around the world who are experts in hotel, tourism and communications to discuss Social Responsibility Applied.
