Why Virtual Circles?

TFest has introduced a brand-new way of keeping the industry connected, virtually.  With the current world climate limiting where we can travel, we are bringing the discussion to you, to keep our community engaged, interacting and helping each other – together, anywhere.

We’re moving forward – with our community spanning so many countries around the world, our priority is to keep delivering information and cultivating relationships despite travel limitations.

The first TFest Virtual Circles will launch on 7 April 2020,  Similar to the Circles hosted at TFest, these will be video chats for the luxury travel community to interact and discuss relevant and current topics in the luxury travel industry.

The first two Virtual Circles will be hosted by some of our speakers from TFest 2020. We are excited to have:

In novel times like these, it helps to rationalise our way through the challenges.  We look at the role of novelty from a neuroscience point of view and discover how it affects our brains, while exploring ways to stay grounded, be creative, and remain rational amid the current health crisis. 

How novelty links to fear, creativity & resilience

7 April 2020   -   5pm (GMT)



Join the community and keep the travel industry together, anywhere.

Each Virtual Circle will last for one hour and can accommodate up to 15 participants in one group.

There’s much more to come, and we can’t wait to share it with you. 
Watch this space and stay connected.

This Circle will help us to understand the impact of fear on performance. We’ll introduce hacks on how we can shift our mindsets to lead with calm responsibility & practical optimism. Starting with ourselves, we can then apply those changes to business recovery planning.
Flow is the ultimate state of human performance, a higher state of consciousness, when we both feel and perform our best. In these exceptional times, it’s important to create a new routine, both personally and professionally. Simple daily activities can boost our immunity, critical thinking skills, innovation and creativity; assuring readiness to face challenges, to adapt and to recover.
Discover how, by drawing on neuroscience, positive psychology and behavioural theories, we can find practical ways to maintain flow and peak performance.
