About INTO Webinars
We run a dynamic programme of heritage webinars, in partnership with INTO members and international conservation bodies. INTO webinars support our members to meet and share learning digitally and are a way to be inspired by practice from around the globe.
Dive in to sessions to gain practical advice in heritage management. We’ve covered everything from access to remote sites, to re-imagining urban development in the wake of a crisis. Many of our sessions follow INTO grant supported projects, and are an opportunity to see the network in collaboration.
Thursday 28 January 2021
We are delighted to present this webinar in partnership with the National Trust of Trinidad and Tobago. It is an opportunity to learn from the experience of the INTO network around the world as they weather the Covid storm. Attendees will exchange new ideas, best practices and innovative ways of dealing with current challenges around the following themes:
- Adapting revenue streams to cope with reduced income
- Creating new structures and staffing
- Leveraging technology in what has traditionally been an experiential business
- Planning for the future with a new mix of products and services
- Changes in visitor and volunteer demographics and attitudes
- Making the most of an increasingly local focus amongst heritage sites
We will hear initially from Catherine Leonard, INTO Secretary-General, and David J Brown, Principal at Bearden Brown LLC. They will present the impacts of Covid-19 on the INTO membership from our sustainable tourism project, supported by American Express.
This will be followed by an interactive conversation, guided by Shamila Ramcharan, Chief Executive Officer of the National Trust of Trinidad and Tobago.
