Over the years our show fans have heard us routinely connect with David Scowsill and then Gloria Guevara Manzo when they headed-up the World Travel & Tourism Council. Change came to the WTTC back in August 2021, when Julia Simpson took on the CEO role with the organization after a successful career with British Airways and other leading world airlines.
With Liz Truss taking the reigns as Britain’s new Prime Minister on September 6th, along with the passing of Queen Elizabeth II at 96 on September 8th — and her historic Memorial Service occurring on September 19th, there’s certainly a lot happening in London making it the epicenter of the world once again.

During our conversation we also discussed the continued rebound in travel from the pandemic, plus the downward spiral of the British Pound, Euro, Yen and other currencies against the U.S. Dollar — making travel more affordable for Americans, but far more costly for the rest of the world and what that means for the future.
