Dr Taleb Rifai accept Honorary Fellowship of the Society

Tuesday March 27, 2018

Fellows, Members and guests of The Tourism Society gathered at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington High Street in March to present Dr Taleb Rifai with an Honorary Fellowship of the Society.  Dr Rifai until recently held the post of UNWTO Secretary General.  He thanked the Society (here represented by Jenny McGee, Executive Director; Roger Goodacre, TCN Chairman and Ken Robinson CBE) and gave a moving speech, sharing his experiences and stressing his keenly held belief in the power tourism has to promote greater understanding between people and support a shared need to thrive in a peaceful world.
