We are looking back on a most interesting meeting in LAB. Speakers Sara Mair Bellshaw (Slow Adventure) and Celia Bull (Selkie Explorers) generously shared their insights into what are “Critical Success Factors for the Slow Adventure Organisation and Businesses”. Participants learned about Sara Mair Bellshaw’s approach to engaging destinations, attracting and retaining ambassadors and ensuring the continuity of the successful Slow Adventure project. Both speakers addressed the importance of partnerships, community, trust, well-being, empathy, “reading the customer” and creating immersive experiences. A summary of this meeting will be available soon for those who participated in this LAB.
