Publisher's Summary

This book combines an extraordinary first-person account of an entrepreneurial instinct to start and develop a highly successful international travel adventure company and reveals unusual management secrets that not only keep employees fully engaged but also keep customers extremely happy. After being fired from McDonald's as a teenager, Poon Tip decided that if he wanted to be successful in life, he would need to be self employed. To do that, he started G Adventures in 1990 with financing based upon his maxed-out credit cards.

But the results were startling: people loved going on vacations to exotic spots around the world where they dealt with adventure and action. G Adventures is not for the faint of heart - it's for people who want to get away AND have memories to cherish for a lifetime.

What makes G Adventures so successful? Poon Tip has created an entirely new and refreshing approach to management, which is related in Looptail. In his company, there's no CEO - but there is a company Mayor. There is no HR dept - but there is a Talent Agency and a company Culture Club.

Poon Tip even offers any employee a check for $5,000 if he or she can actually hurt his feelings with less than positive feedback about the company and how it's being run. So far, nobody has claimed the prize. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
