Among the speakers was National Geographic’s Brian Skerry, whose underwater shark photography speaks to his belief in the transformative power of traveling to places that scare you. Actor and acclaimed travel writer Andrew McCarthy spoke on similar themes, inspiring the group with his use of travel to conquer fears and the advice that all travelers should take time to explore on their own, even if on a group tour.
Other engaging speakers included Global Demographics Founder and Chief Executive Clint Laurent, who discussed demographic trends and economic shifts around the world, and Peter Greenberg, CBS Travel Editor and veteran ETC speaker, whose presentation on travel risk-taking generated a great, animated discussion.
But the most fun part of the conference? Besides a lively cocktail hour hosted by the Go Ahead team, the biggest highlight was when Dallas Arcand, World Champion Hoop Dancer from Alberta, Canada, wowed crowds with his performance.
Thanks for an amazing & inspiring experience, ETC!
