Sue Hollis Was Flying High In Life
Sue Hollis has had a wild and crazy ride within the airline and travel industry over the past 30 years. As a senior airline executive with British Airways in both Australia and the U.K., her roles included Manager Sales London, General Manager 767 Fleet, General Manager British Airways/Qantas Joint Serves Agreement, and the Head of Australia Sales for Qantas.
Not content with living a corporate life and wanting to make a bigger difference, she stepped into the role of “Entrepreneur” 17 years ago and started TravelEdge, a successful corporate travel management company, with her business partner Grant Wilson. Since that time, TravelEdge has grown into a $250m business, becoming the largest independent travel management company in Australia. Sue was deservedly recognized as one of the Top 10 Women Entrepreneurs in the country. She had a supportive husband, beautiful children, a colossal career, and a debilitating perfection problem in juggling all of her roles and self-imposed expectations.
From Empty To Full
After looking in the mirror and seeing an empty person staring back, Sue stepped down from the role of TravelEdge CEO in 2015. She picked up a BMW superbike and rode *solo* around the Pacific Northwest for three months. Her first book encompassing that journey is titled Riding Raw: A Journey from Empty To Full, published in August 2018.
The Up Close & Personal Interview
SheSpark contributor and “Her Bold Voice” founder Kim B. Smith talked with Sue about how “cracking” let in the light. In this case, Sue saw the light on the rumbling seat of a motorcycle. Sue is now a coach and an adventure-preneur based between Whistler, Canada and Sydney, Australia. You’l find Sue following her passions, building communities, racing motorbikes, and helping people create lives of epic proportions!
