  1. The invitation was sent to me by our National Office of the Animal Anti Cruelty League but I am not sure that it would be worthwhile me attending this workshop as we are not involved at all in the tourism experience sector.

    I would appreciate any feedback you could give me in this regard.

    1. Hi David, thank you for your message. All information pertaining the event is listed for your perusal. Regards, #PhambanoTech
