Great to see everyone! Good History
Patrick Ashworth
01:31:41
That was excellent.
Neil Stuart
01:32:07
anyone with a question next?
Malcolm Penn
01:32:33
Very informative I enjoyed that talk
Lea Cohen
01:33:41
Really really nice talk!
Patrick Ashworth
01:34:45
I've just ordered the book too!
Jaime
01:35:02
Yes, excellent indeed. It also reflected the early establishment of the multicultural nature of Belize.
Annie Lou Burns Martinez
01:44:57
Hello, Mike, Thank you very much! I think many Belizeans would appreciate hearing your presentation on Col Despard. I certainly did.
Malcolm Penn
01:49:01
One of the big problems is the lack of direct flights to Belize from Europe - can Belize influence or lead at the international level such flights?
Laura Frampton (Belize)
01:50:49
The issue with Europe also has to do with the way Europeans travel. They tend to want to come in on charter flights and stay all in the same hotel.
Laura Frampton (Belize)
01:51:08
We do not have the hotel capacity to accommodate this type of travel trend
Laura Frampton (Belize)
01:52:05
Therefore the target has to be high end Europeans who do not travel this way
Patrick Ashworth
01:54:37
Yes, the independent tourist seems to be the market.
Lord Ashcroft
02:14:03
always a treat to listen to Victor...

02:23:59
Hello. I’m Karen Patnett Templer
Bruce Gittings
02:25:57
Can I ask if JOHN BURTON can let me know if he is here please?
Dylan Vernon
02:30:27
Excellent presentation Val. How do we take advantage of the moment to get a new momentum on a national consensus on fine-tuning and implementing the obvious policies required? A all of society national covid recovery Council is part of it.
Patrick Ashworth
02:30:41
Will's prognosis was too bleak for Zoom!
Jake Snaddon
02:45:02
Is there a large enough spend from education tourism?
Jake Snaddon
02:54:26
Great to hear discussion on diversification of the tourism sector in rebuilding post covid and the protection of resources
Elizabeth Graham
02:56:35
With reference to Jake's first question, I think that's what Jaime was saying--that there hasn't been any real assessment monetarily of educational tourism.
Patrick Ashworth
02:59:18
Well done all speakers. Excellent stuff.

02:59:23
Wonder words to hear from Ms. Valerie....BACK TO BASICS! My sentiments exactly. My goal is to highlight the diabetes epidemic and the need for BACK TO BASIC” nutrition and wellness. Thank you.
Kirby Salisbury
03:00:14
Tourism spending of any type increases GDP but isn’t the point to have the profits remain in Belize and doesn’t this have a large effect on the kind of tourism infrastructures that we strive for and the type of investors we seek?
David Howard
03:00:51
Thank you all. Great questions and discussion.
Lord Ashcroft
03:00:52
Neil I could have significantly contributed so didn’t...
Valerie Woods
03:04:08
Neil thanks for the invitation to participation. Good discussion and hope it continues. best wishes to the association.
Valerie Woods
03:06:33
please excuse me as I need to leave at this time. a very good event
Malcolm Penn
03:08:06
thank you very much for your talk/discussion
Dylan Vernon
03:19:17
I recall when I was at SJC High School in Belize in mid-1970s, Peter’s ‘Geography of Belize’ was my first comprehensive geographical introduction to my country. His book did so for thousands of Belizeans and increased the curiosity of many to travel in Belize more and getting involved with its natural enviroment.
Jono Gray
03:23:46
Thank you all so much for the discussion(s). Really insightful. Unfortunately I have to go now
Ydahlia Metzgen
03:24:24
Thank you Neil and the UKBA for the invitation to participate and for the tribute to Peter.
Jaime
03:29:59
Neil and David, would it be possible to get a copy of the photograph of Peter at Xunantunich? I have worked for about 10 years at the site and it looks considerably different now.
David Howard
03:34:24
The filming of the event, and I think the slides and photos, will be posted on the UKBA website. Neil is looking after that side of the event, but I know we’d like as many people as possible to enjoy/ benefit/ share from the occasion.
Iain Woodhouse
03:38:24
that photo was a great day. 2007.

Apologies, but I was overcome with dizziness. I am feeling better now.

Glad to hear you recovered. Take care!
Chris Minty
03:41:12
Hi Everyone - Barbara Bulmer Thomas has just messaged me to apologies but she came over with dizziness but she's feeling a lot better now
Jaime
03:41:43
Good to know that Barbara is feeling better.
Patrick Ashworth
03:44:24
This has been great - especially so given the circumstances. But I have another call lined up in 3-4 minutes or so, so I have to go. Thanks to Neil and all participants.
Jaime
03:47:18
I concur with Patrick, this was wonderful. I truly enjoyed the presentations, the discussions, and the opportunity to connect with so many folks who share a research interest in, and love for, Belize. Thanks for opportunity to join in. Cheers.
Elizabeth Graham
03:53:25
This was a wonderful meeting, and Neil an ideal moderator. I apologise, but I have to leave for a 7pm meeting. I really enjoyed all the speakers and discussion as well. I too will miss Peter greatly.
Chris Hall
