The letter from Zurab Pololikashvili, Secretary General of the UNWTO,  thanked Worsley for stepping forward to keep the hospitality and tourism industry connected, informed, innovative and inspired from the outset of the pandemic. 
He was credited with visionary leadership and using technology to deliver numerous virtual and hybrid events, step-changing how the industry connects.
