Rens de Jong talks about true pricing with Elske Doets, Stef Driessen and Paul Peeters. What effects does true pricing have for the travel industry?

-Fenny Koppen, CEO & CO-Owner Riksja Travel
Fenny is CEO and co-owner of travel company Riksja Travel. I believe that travel can make the world a better place, if done responsibly. It is important for me to believe in makeability, which means you always act from a position of abundance and optimism. This way, you keep your focus on what can be done, instead of the other way around. Working together within the industry to create a better world is also an important precondition, as far as I am concerned; only by cooperation can we make a difference through economies of scale.
