Travel DAZE 2020 speaker spotlight: Sarah Clark, Intrepid Group

We’ve already revealed many of the brilliant speakers who will be taking to the virtual Travel DAZE stage next month, but there are still a few more to highlight!

One of those is Sarah Clark, managing director of Intrepid Group for the Asia-Pacific region.

With a passion for travel, Clark has worked in the travel industry across multiple continents calling Australia, the UK, the US and Canada home.

She began her career at Topdeck Travel as a tour guide and quickly rose up the ranks, establishing a presence in North and South America for the brand through to leading the global youth business in London as global general manager.

Clark also worked in retail as vice president for STA Travel in Dallas, Texas leading strategy for air, product, marketing and online performance.

In 2017, Clark decided to swap the corporate climb for a backpack and spent 12 months travelling the globe including sailing across the Pacific Ocean.

Wanting to find where she would then have a big global impact in sustainable travel, Clark decided to join Intrepid Group as general manager of marketing, and now leads the adventure travel company’s APAC division.

Clark has sat on local tourism advisory panels, was a member on the Eurail board, sat on the global leadership team for Flight Centre Travel Group and STA Travel, and was chosen as a young leader in ‘30 under 30’ for Phocuswright USA.

Check out who else will be speaking alongside Clark at Travel DAZE 2020 here.

The event (which will be the only travel industry event of its scale in Australia this year) will virtually bring together the best minds from within the travel sector, along with external experts, to foster its recovery from COVID-19.

Presented by the Italian National Tourist Board, Travel DAZE 2020 will explore what tangible steps business owners, travel agents, tour operators, marketers, and communication specialists can take toward rebuilding a sustainable and profitable future.

The conference will kick off on Monday 2 November and finish up on Friday 6 November, and the best part is that it’s absolutely FREE!
