We’re introducing the next dedicated podcast about the people that work in the Australian travel and tourism industry – ‘Travel Conversations’.

This  week your hosts Ryan Montgomery & Aaron Christian are meeting up with Lisa Pagotto, Founder & CEO of Crooked Compass.

Lisa Pagotto has lived and breathed the industry since 2003 and excelling in all facets of the industry from product development, price contracting and negotiations, heading up several sales and marketing teams nationally as well as creating and establishing a touring brand for another company.

The time naturally came when Lisa was to create her own brand, built around her unique style of travel. Crooked Compass was born.

“To travel is to live… Dream, Explore, Discover. The most beautiful thing in the world is of course the world itself.”

Lisa Pagotto, Crooked Compass Founder & CEO
