Brett Tollman, the CEO of The Travel Corporation and Founder of The TreadRight Foundation on learning to be a global citizen

Though Brett Tollman lives in Los Angeles, the CEO of The Travel Corporation travels about 225 days a year. His most memorable destinations have included Okavango Delta in Botswana, Maasai Mara in Kenya, Croatia, the Balkans (recovering thanks to tourism), London (his favourite city), Moscow, Cairo, Madrid, São Paulo, Lima, Prague, Budapest, Havana, Sydney, Darwin, Fiji, Tasmania, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Auckland, Namibia, Tulum, Vancouver and Lima. “There are still countless places I am yet to enjoy with my family, even in our own backyard,” says Tollman.
