  • Dear Nayeem Khan, I am intrigued by this presentation because you have used my material and have not credited to me, and you have used quotes from other authors that you do not credit or reference. This material is work that I have presented at conferences around the world over the last 5 years and you will find that people will recognise it as mine. It has also been published in international journals. I assume that you obtained the material form the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) website. You discuss the concepts of Flow and Co-creation without identifying the original authors. Perhaps you can explain this ?
