This week, we welcomed Michele Harris, Director of Economic and Community Development for the municipality of Grey Highlands (Eugenia Falls, Kimberley, Markdale and the Beaver Valley). Michele served as CEO of Headwaters Tourism, an award-winning marketing organization that redefined some of Ontario's most loved destinations, including Orangeville, Caledon, Erin, Dufferin County, Shelburne and Mono. While under her wing, Headwaters was named Tourism Innovator of the Year by the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario and Tourism Industry Association of Canada. Michele and Andrew discuss economic growth and community engagement in Grey Highlands alongside the importance of honouring the traditions of land, farming and heritage. Most interestingly, they discuss what's to come from the former Talisman Mountain Resort.
