Being the CEO of an Australian travel company during a pandemic is not easy.

After months of borders being slammed shut and there being no international travel – Tess Willcox and her team had to reinvent.

So what did she do when her business started to take the biggest hit?

She applied for TIE Accelerator.

Here Tess tells you why she got involved with TIE.

She brings to life where she was personally and professionally.

She’ll tell you about the experience of working with a Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest NGO.

We’ll hear about what her initial feelings were coming into the experience, the doubts and what happened.
