Hope Burridge, TBR INternational, ON, Canada
My name is Hope, born and raised in Toronto Canada. Toronto is a ‘green’ city meaning it has good environmental governance and therefore preserves its parks and green spaces. Toronto is a ‘multicultural’ city and provides me opportunities to partake in many arts and cultural activities.
I’m the owner of TBR International, a Resource Management company serving clients in the areas of Supply Chain, Education, and Tourism.
Functions of business management have been long-standing throughout my career. The scope of work includes public and private sectors as well as non-profit organizations in local, national, and international settings. The past board of directors’ appointments was the Pacific Asia Travel Association(Canada) and Transport Action(Canada). The last 15 years of my career have been spent focused on Tourism. I began my love affair with the travel industry at the French Tour Office in Toronto. My function was Public Relations and Promotion Assistant to the Director of Canada. It is where I gained experience in almost every aspect of the tourism business. Happily, I’m still in the industry.
I’d like to inspire and create innovative solutions for rebuilding travel. The delivery of circular economic goals with the lowest environmental impact on the planet is a good plan. The plan can bring together key partnerships throughout the globe to this critical challenge. Rebuilding travel in this new era combines sound practices of business with impactful conservation activities on all levels.
