Google’s Michelle Allen to speak at Travel DAZE 2019!

You’re only as good as your team, or so the saying goes. But how do you successfully build a sustainable business and get the most out of the ones at the heart of it?

Hear from Google’s head of travel, Michelle Allen, on how to sustain business growth and maximise the potential of your number one asset – your people – at Travel DAZE 2019!

Allen will provide inspiration and reflect on the lessons she’s learned, along with sharing budget-friendly takeaways you can implement into your business, during her fast-paced, 15-minute TED-style talk.

Allen will join a number of other stellar speakers at Travel DAZE, including former Greens leader Bob Brown, Gardening Australia host and Logie winner Costa Georgiadis, IHG’s Leanne Harwood, Malaysia Airlines’ Giles Gilbert, Abercrombie & Kent’s Sujata Raman, Planeterra’s Jamie Sweeting, and Flight Centre’s Sandra Vardanega. Check them all out here.

This year, Travel DAZE will tackle sustainability, but we’re not just talking about carbon offsetting and charitable practices.

Companies must now adopt a social cause, an organisational purpose, a long-term business strategy so it remains relevant and sustainable.

Sustainability is about marketing the sustainable credentials you have, sustaining staff and using tech to sustain growth.

It’s about retail and wholesale moving away from the unsustainable race to push the lowest rate.

It’s about advances in aviation, creative ideas based on moral principles and sustaining your customer base, market share and bottom line.

Travel DAZE explores creating the most sustainable travel businesses we’ve ever seen.

This year, the event will be held on Wednesday 28 August at the NSW Teachers Federation in Sydney. We’ve also come up with a nice little deal for Travel DAZE so that your whole squad can come along!

If you buy two tickets to the only TED-style talks for travel, you’ll get one for FREE!
