Gus Balbontin | 11.20 - 11.40am
Born and bred in the Argentinean Patagonia, Gus dreamt of travelling the world from the age of eight when he first told his family that rather than studying, he was just going to travel.
With this belief, a small backpack and dreams of great adventures, he crisscrossed South America racking up 40,000 kilometres without spending a cent. During that time, he spent countless hours talking to travellers and dreaming about helping travel guide companies make better products: 'this content is so old, I can help them fix it' he suggested to anyone who would listen.
The odds were against him and on the back of his enthusiasm and travel experience he managed to secure a designer role at none other than Lonely Planet. Fast forward to 2014; after eight roles within Lonely Planet, having completed an MBA and spent hundreds of hours on planes, Gus had progressed to leading Lonely Planet with a team as passionate about the businesses place in traveller's lives as he was. Gus ultimately rose to be Chief Technology Officer and one of three executive directors of Lonely Planet before hanging up the boots and calling it a day.
He will blow you away with energy and insights into the transformation, struggles and successes of one of the most loved brands in the world.
