Name: Ms Samone Wear | Position Title: Managing Director/Founder
When and why did you join the industry? I am a long time admirer of the industry. I truly love it – It creates a sense of adventure and encourages people to grow. Travel also creates the opportunity to capture life time memories, that part is priceless!
What do you like most about your job? Interacting with both the businesses, tour operators and global traveller. To watch our tour operator share their culture is very rewarding. It is delivered with such heart centred passion, the tourist leaves the activity or experience having been transported and educated on the longest civilisation in the world.
What’s one of the biggest achievements of your career so far? Creating the future of tourism – Experiencing authentic indigenous culture in virtual reality 3D tours combined with the real deal upon arrival to Australia is mind blowing and fun. We are creating a global market place for our first nation story tellers, cultural entrepreneurs and tour operators – Being given the opportunity to make a difference to a business owner – This stuff is real and highly valued in our company. Its a hard slog, supporting local business supports families in turn means we at ITA are helping to create a better future and change lives.
