    Travel and T​ourism Advisory, Industry Engagement

  • The business of travel and tourism is everybody's business ...


    Go deeper ... dine in a local restaurant when you travel, purchase something from a small market or shop, buy a handicraft, pay a local guide, attend a cultural show -- change a life.


    Our responsibility as an industry

    For a couple of decades Dawn Drew has been an active, vocal participant in the travel industry.

    • Equalize -- connect the "haves" of the world to the "have-nots"
    • Build - create jobs that grow into careers
    • Transform - translate the buzzwords into commerce. Authentic, transformative experiences should build and sustain the economies of the communities that provide them.
    • Guide -- help consumers make truly considered decisions, because they impact real lives once they depart.
