John Anderson

                            John Anderson founded Contiki Holidays in London in 1962
                            because, at the age of 22, he wanted to travel Europe but didn’t
                            have enough money. Under John Anderson’s leadership, Contiki
                            became an internationally recognised brand, one of the world’s
                            leading tour operators and the largest operator to specifically
                            cater to the 18-35 year old market.

                            John Anderson’s incredible story of creating Contiki is
                            inspirational, humorous and educational. An accomplished and
                            erudite speaker, John’s presentations cover his successes and
                            failures, offering valuable insights into Contiki’s initial and
                            continued success that are truly enlightening, entertaining and
                            jam packed full of personal and business messages.

When John sold Contiki a few years ago it was one of the world's leading tour operators
(the largest catering for 18-35 year olds) It had a fleet of coaches, resorts, villas, chateaux,
boats etc, run by a worldwide staff of 700 and firmly established as an international 'brand'
name. To date two million young people have traveled Contiki, including one million
Australians.

Over the last three years John has written a book detailing his amazing journey, which is
entitled 'Only Two Seats Left'. More recently he has started a new business offering tours to
South America for the over 45's (the Baby Boomers)!
