Co-founder of Intrepid Group, Chairman of The Intrepid Foundation
'Purpose' is not the latest buzzword, but a change in understanding within businesses as to why they exist. Geoff will talk about Intrepid's core purpose and its importance to the company. Having a Purpose Beyond Profit is important within Intrepid.
Globally recognised as a pioneer in responsible travel, Geoff Manchester is the co-founder of Intrepid Group, the world’s largest provider of adventure travel experiences, and Chairman of the company’s not-for-profit The Intrepid Foundation.
Geoff and his best mate Darrell Wade founded Intrepid Travel in 1989 with a vision of creating small group adventures that travelled the local way, benefiting both travellers and the places that they visit. More than a quarter of a century later, Intrepid Travel has grown to become Intrepid Group, a portfolio of six specialist tour operators and 17 destination management companies taking over 50,000 travellers to more than 100 countries on all seven continents, and employing more than 15 00 staff in 25 offices around the world.
Join us as Geoff opens the conversation about Intrepid's Purpose Beyond Profit activities and how important they are internally and for the brand.
