Thank you to Jude Leitch, former TMI Chair

TMI would like to thank Jude very much for all her work on behalf of the TMI and its members. Jude was Director of Tourism at Northumberland Tourism, and also chaired the National Rural Tourism Group, lobbying government for changes to benefit tourism businesses and support to help rural tourism areas compete. In 2018 Northumberland was crowned ‘Best County/Destination’ in the British Tourism Awards, establishing the county as Britain’s favourite ‘staycation’ choice. Jude got involved with TMI in 2010 and joined the board  in 2015.

It is hard to believe we are just a week away from the annual Hot Topic Event - and there is still plenty of time to book.  As we head out of lockdown we know how busy you are, but take a few hours out of your day to join for this really relevant event - The Road Ahead. We are also delighted to announce today that our Wine Time speaker on Monday night will be the enigmatic Mark Cribb, who has recently launched a compelling Podcast series called "Humans of Hospitality" - so as precursor to the main event, join us with a cup of tea, or something a little stronger, to meet up with your TMI colleagues from 6pm on  Monday evening.
