An Interview with Bruce Poon Tip, Founder of G-Adventures


I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with the Founder of G-Adventures, Bruce Poon Tip, at Base Camp in Toronto.

In this very in-depth, rapid-fire style interview, we talk business and we get personal.

Bruce speaks about many things including how his personal travel style has evolved over the years and seeing the world through “new eyes”, the importance of getting out of your comfort zone, how Nirvana reminds him of the Amazon, his definition of freedom, what inspires him the most, risks, regrets, fears, compassion, how tourism impacts lives across the world and why he still considers himself a student of leadership.

Whether you’re a traveller or aspiring entrepreneur, this interview will give you an incredible insight about not only Bruce the man but also about the importance of a rock-hard work ethic, dealing with adversity and how you can lead by example.
