February'20 Notes from the Editor

Fiona Nicholl

Director Skål International

As President Peter Morrison said recently, there has never been a more important time to be a Skålleague!

For those that have already renewed your membership, thank you for continuing to support our organisation. Skål International would not exist without you! For those still deciding whether to renew, here are a few words to consider…

"Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success." – Henry Ford

With the recent demise of Holden (an Australian car manufacturer company that was founded in 1856 - originally as a saddlery), I thought this quote was quite fitting, even though it’s not Tourism.

Our International Tourism industry has suffered a few hard blows this year and we are already feeling the effects. Airlines have cut flights, businesses are reducing their overheads and sadly this means people are losing their jobs. So, how can we help? By doing something that you already love… travel! My dad always used to say to me “You can’t sell a secret”. So, tell the world where you’ve been and share your experiences!


Yours in Skål,

Fiona Nicholl
