Keeping it in the Family with Havas Creative Tours

Family-owned business are relatively common in the meetings and event industry, and with Father's Day right around the corner, have you ever wondered, "what's it like to be in the business with Dad"?  Our DMC Partner, Rachel Havas shares a little bit about what it's like to work with her father, Fransicso Havas, President and Owner of Havas Creative Tours, based in Brazil.

Q: How does your father, Francisco Havas, inspire you?

RH: My dad's great knowledge, not only about World Tourism and the DMC industry, but also about life, people, history, economics and other subjects inspires me every day.  Even more than all these factors, what inspires me the most is how his eyes shine and how he vibrates with passion everyday.  He is a true master who loves his work, and it is an honor to walk beside him!

Q: What do you enjoy most about working with your father?

RH: It is the possibility to have real, quality time together. To grow from our relationship. To learn and laugh and argue and laugh again together in the office or anywhere in the world. I really love all our travel experiences together too!
