  6. 6. “We are at that point of time when a four-hundred-year-old age is rattling in its deathbed and another is struggling to be born – with a shifting of culture, science, society and institutions enormously greater and swifter than the world has ever experienced…. Dee Hock, Founder of VISA and author The Birth of a Chaordic Organization A Contemporary View
  7. 7. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothingA Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens 1859 An EarlierView
  8. 8. "once a photograph of the Earth, taken from outside, is available…a new idea as powerful as any in history will be let loose.” Fred Hoyle, 1948
  9. 9. What is “Conscious” Travel about?

  12. 12. How do YOU see this? a piece of real estate? a floating lumberyard? spaceship earth? a living organism? Home?
  13. 13. This report shows the world is on a development trajectory that is not sustainable. If we fail to alter our patterns of production and consumption, things will go badly wrong. 10 mega-forces, all connected in ways we don’t fully understand. What “Business” now knows
  14. 14. • Systemic breakdowns are breakdowns that occur in an entire system, as opposed to breakdowns in individual parts and components. Systemic risks are characterised by: • Modest tipping points combining indirectly to produce large failures • Risk sharing or contagion, as one loss triggers the chain of others • Hysteresis or systems being unable to recover after a shock. EMERGING: Everything and everyone is connected
  15. 15. Change Drivers
  16. 16. We are living through one of the most fundamental shifts in history – a change in the actual belief structure of western society. No economic, political, or military power can compare with the power of a change of mind. By deliberately changing their images of reality, people are changing their world. Willis Harman, Founder World Business Academy 1970s Awareness has been growing over 40+ years
  17. 17. Waking Up to the Real Nature of Change
  18. 18. Grow Up Don’t ask what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. John F. Kennedy
  19. 19. Transformational Leadership The transforming leader looks for potential motives in followers, seeks to satisfy higher needs, and engages the full person of the follower. The result is a relationship of mutual stimulation and elevation that converts followers into leaders and may convert leaders into moral agents James MacGregor-Burns
  20. 20. A Collective Values Shift
  21. 21. We are growing up!
  22. 22. Step Up You never change things by fighting existing reality To change something build a new model that renders the existing model obsolete. Buckminster Fuller
  23. 23. On Power Power is a verb – “to be able” NOT a noun, a thing to be hoarded Power WITH versus Power Over New organisational structures warrant new forms of power
  24. 24. Shifting from Hierarchies to Networks
  25. 25. Two Powerful forces climate change and demand growth Community resilience, adaptability and capacity to manage these forces requires empowerment at the grassroots
  26. 26. Empowerment is happening- power shifts From company to customer From company to employee From politicians to citizens
  27. 27. New Power – with not over
  28. 28. New Power – with not over Old power works like a currency. It is held by a few. Once gained, it is jealously guarded and the powerful have a substantial store of it to spend. It is closed, it is inaccessible, and leader-driven. It downloads and it captures. New power operates differently, like a current. It is made by many. It is open, participatory, and peer-driven. It uploads, and it distributes. Like water or electricity, it’s most forceful when it surges. The goal with new power is not to hoard it but to channel it. Source: Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms, Understanding New Power, HBR Dec 2014.
  29. 29. Another Harvard Voice on Power “maybe strength in the 21st Century isn’t about dominance but the capacity to evoke…the ability to spark the enduring bonds of shared values, intrinsic motivation, and mutually committed perseverance…. …the power to inspire, animate, infuse, spark, evoke – and then connect, link, and collaborate ..the power to evoke consists of four other E’s: the power to engage, ennoble, elevate, enlighten.”
  30. 30. Engagement isn’t the right word – It’s Passion
  31. 31. Passion ignited by a sense of meaning and purpose The Purpose Economy is quest by people for more purpose in their lives. It is an economy where value lies in establishing purpose for employees and customers – through serving needs greater than their own, enabling personal growth, and building community Aaron Hurst
  32. 32. Hosts as Alchemists? Water is H2O Hydrogen two parts Oxygen one But there is a third thing that makes it water And nobody knows what that is.. DH Lawrence
  33. 33. 42 STRETCH BREAK (Time permitting)
  34. 34. The Tourism Success Story: 1.2 billion
  35. 35. More to Come!
  36. 36. The Island Where Tourist Garbage is Stored in the Maldives Source: Daily Mail The Queue to Climb Everest Source: Guardian • see: Can Tourism Change its Operating Model? How will we handle congestion? How will we handle waste? How will we handle emissions? How will we manage our thirst for water and land? How will avoid residents’ backlash? Protest Sign Erected by Young Balinese Source: ABC They Paved Paradise How will we protect vulnerable people and cultures? Can we handle twice the volume in less than 17 years?
  37. 37. Mass Tourism Showing Signs of Breaking • Volatile demand – boom & bust • Price discounting – cheap travel • Declining margins, yield and benefit • Pressure for volume growth • Congestion • Less satisfaction • More cost cutting • GROW, GROW, GROW
  38. 38. Where’s the fun in this?
  39. 39. We can do so much better Dying OLD “INDUSTRY” • More • Exclusive, benefitting the few • Gross revenues • Tourist – wallet, $ • Financial Transaction • Heirarchical, “top down” leadership • Silo’d, separate • Disempowering Emerging NEW “Visitor Economy” • Better • Inclusive, benefitting the many • Net benefits • Guest – meaning, delight • Human Encounter • Networked, grassroot, leadership is shared • Integrated • Empowering communities
  40. 40. I HAVE A DREAM
  41. 41. A Dream of PEAK PLACES….. ….of People performing at peak in peak enterprises to create peak Places
  42. 42. PEAK PLACES are places where • All life flourishes; tourism is the means not the end • There’s a distinct, feeling, character, “spirit” and personality • Hosts are in love with their home and look after it with a shared passion • Guests experience an authentic welcome that inspires and transforms • Hosts help each other and collaborate to create sustained livelihoods • People in service to others take pride in showing they care and are valued by the community as a result • Hosts are “passionate, smart, resilient, trustworthy, original” • Visitors generate sustained net benefits to the community as a whole • Where the community determines direction, pace and type of tourism that is right for them.
  43. 43. H e r e ’ s o
  44. 44. From here To here? YOU Can Help us Move
  45. 45. • In a globalised, knowledge economy, connecting people is the vital, core function – YOUR PURPOSE • Value now lies within PEOPLE with diverse passion, intelligence, courage, curiosity • For you a destination is not real estate, it’s HOME; it’s YOUR PLACE • Because you love your home, you will protect it and celebrate it. PROTECTION comes naturally • Because you love your home; want to share its uniqueness, you can slow the PACE, enable them to SAVOUR • You are the resident, you have skin in the game, can feel the pulse, create community, & collectively have POWER
