“Mac is a great choice for the SSL livestream,” said Joy. “With the current challenges the tourism industry is facing worldwide from the coronavirus crisis, this is a great time to brainstorm about future solutions. The focus of the talks is to be positive and insightful while supporting sustainably-minded local businesses. It’s great to highlight entrepreneurs like Mac who are following their passion, collaborating with others, and putting out lots of authentic content. Mac has impressive TripAdvisor reviews showing he understands the inbound market and how to connect with local people and culture really well. I love the energy he shows on his YouTube channel, the international audience responds really well to this!”
“Seeking sustainability is about aiming to find a balance between the needs of people-planet and profits. It is far-reaching and touches every aspect of life. Once you start to see it, you see it everywhere.” said Joy.
“When Joy invited me on the Seeking Sustainability LIVE I was flattered and honoured. What attracted me to participate was the amount of research that Joy clearly puts into every interview. As our tour guests and content consumers know, we are huge supporters of good people doing great things in Japan. This is a philosophy that Maction Planet and Inbound Ambassador intimately share. Discussing this on the livestream was a lot of fun, and I hope watchers enjoy… err… watching it!” said Mac.
During the episode, Joy and Mac discuss the Maction Planet journey, building a business in Japan and the past, present and future of Japan tourism.
