This was the germination of Intrepid Travel, a responsible travel business that now has six specialist tour operators and 17 destination-management companies employing more than 1500 staff in 25 offices around the world.
Each year, they take over 250,000 travellers to more than 100 countries on all seven continents.
My guest today is Geoff Manchester, one of the two mates who co-founded Intrepid Travel with the aim of creating experiences that benefit all stakeholders: travellers, staff, communities and the environment.
The conversation starts with Geoff explaining why Conscious Capitalism and becoming a certified B Corp is important to him and Intrepid Travel.
From there, we go on to discuss:
"The four pillars of conscious capitalism really reflect our business." @GeoffManchester
"Companies will need to become B Corporations because B Corp certification will assist the consumer to decide who they want to spend their money with." - @GeoffManchester
"Conscious leadership is much more about leading from behind." - @GeoffManchester
"Give people the understanding that they can think for themselves." @GeoffManchester
"Be focused on getting culturally correct people because you can teach them the skills you need." @GeoffManchester
"Keeping up with the technology involves a huge investment all the time, and it never seems to stop." @GeoffManchester
"It's not a matter of going to new countries but a matter of doing new styles of travel." @GeoffManchester
