Gus Balbontin

Investor, Advisor, Explorer

Colleagues like to say Gus Balbontin comes from the future — which can only help — but the Patagonia-born, former CTO and executive director of Lonely Planet has arrived in New York with practical words of wisdom, like — “Spend less time speculating about the future and more time doing something about it.” After guiding one of world’s most recognizable brands through significant business transformation, Balbontin shares what he continues to learn about thriving amid the relentless pace of disruption, including:

  • Transforming businesses, teams and individuals to successfully adapt in rapid-changing markets
