Event description

Description

You're invited to AHT's next 'Game Changers' panel and industry function featuring guests with a range of heritage and cultural tourism backgrounds. Industry panellists and interpretation expert Emeritus Professor Jane James will discuss storytelling as part of the visitor experience to create the personal and emotional connections that make memorable moments. In an era when visitors are inundated with content and information, it is more important than ever to tell our stories and tell them well. How do we tell our own personal, business and regional stories in an authentic way that differentiates us and engages our visitors? How do we even know if our story is worth telling?

Date: Tuesday 12 November 2019

Time: 4-6:30pm including AHT Update, 'Game Changer' Panel, then end of year celebration and networking with drinks and nibbles

Cost: $45 incl. GST

Venue: Panel Discussion at Fabrik Arts & Heritage Hub (Onkaparinga Woollen Mill Precinct) in Lobethal then networking right next door at Lobethal Bierhaus

We're looking forward to a great discussion (and stories!) with panellists Paul Rees (History Trust of SA - Director of National Motor Museum, Bay to Birdwood and SA Maritime Museum), Renee Jeffrey (Business Development Manager Corporate & Tourism at Penfolds including Magill Estate) and Ivan Tiwu Copley (Peramangk/Kaurna man, Aboriginal Consultant and Cultural Broker). The discussion will be led by Rilka Warbanoff, Board member of Adelaide Hills Tourism, radio personality and owner of Rilka's Kitchen in Hahndorf. After the panel discussion, Emeritus Professor Jane James (Interpretation Consultant) will share insights on when and why a story is worth telling, how to find the best stories for different types of visitors, and the foolproof 'ingredients' to a good story.

PANELLIST & PRESENTER BIOS

Renee Jeffrey - Renee is Penfold’s Business Development Manager, Corporate & Tourism. This appointment reflects her extensive experience in hospitality and tourism at Pernod Ricard Winemakers in the Barossa and as Cellar Door Manager at Balgownie Estate in Victoria. For the past four years Renee has led development of wine experiences at Penfolds Magill Estate, the spiritual birthplace for some of the most famous Australian winemaking stories dating back to 1844.

Paul Rees - Paul is Director of the National Motor Museum at Birdwood and the South Australian Maritime Museum at Port Adelaide. He also manages the highly successful Bay to Birdwood for the History Trust of SA. Paul’s recent promotion to the Director of these great museums reflects his success in bringing new investment and attention to the National Motor Museum. The contemporary exhibitions explore the stories of people and vehicles that shaped Australia’s motoring history, particularly how motor vehicles opened up our country, linking some of our most isolated communities.

Ivan Tiwu Copley - As a Peramangk/Kaurna man, Ivan is an Aboriginal Consultant and Cultural Broker. His father’s side of the family came from the Peramangk Nation of the Mount Lofty Ranges, while his mother belonged to the Kaurna Nation of the Adelaide plains. Ivan welcomes the opportunity to educate and provide awareness of the enduring culture that surrounds us all, as awareness leads to acknowledgement and this opens the door for recognition of the past, development of partnerships, reconciliation and the one thing we all desire, community harmony through cultural competency.

Emeritus Professor Jane James - Jane ran the award-winning tourism degrees at SA’s Flinders University for 17 years and is a former SA Tourism Commission Board Member. As an interpretation consultant, both here and overseas, she specialises in interpretative planning and training, working with tourism, heritage curators, natural area managers and wine businesses to identify their point of difference and their target markets and then telling their story - really well. Jane worked with AHT in 2012 to develop the Adelaide Hills Interpretation plan that was updated in 2016 and is still the focus of our key messages.
