Shark Tank contestant throws support behind burgeoning industry body
The Council of Australian Tour Operators (CATO) has today announced former Shark Tank contestant Lisa Pagotto has joined their membership ranks under her Crooked Compass business.
Pagotto is well known for the wide appraisal and encouragement she received from industry colleagues when she took on the daunting task of being a contestant on popular TV series Shark Tank.
Crooked Compass is a boutique tour operator exploring emerging destinations, with founder Lisa Pagotto saying “we aim to uncover the world’s best kept secrets through small group and customised tours that are culturally immersive and created to inspire, educate and encourage travellers to understand responsible tourism.” Pagotto added that she was a “strong supporter of a collaborative approach to growing the specialist travel sector and joining CATO is an ideal way to achieve this.”
CATO Managing Director, Brett Jardine said “we are delighted to have the Crooked Compass brand within CATO’s membership ranks. There is no doubt Lisa is a future leader of our industry and presents herself as a great role model to young women.”
