Millennials in Travel Spend just a few minutes with Ashish Sanghrajka, president of Big Five Tours & Expeditions, and you clearly see his is driven by passion. This native-born Kenyan began to learn about the family travel company at an early age. As a child, he saw firsthand the value of customer relationships when clients often dined with his family in their Nairobi home. In the mid-1980s, his family relocated to New York, and later Florida. Sanghrajka attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, graduating with a degree in political science, with a special focus on international economics. In Charles Schwab's Capital Markets Division, he worked as an economic analyst and trainer. But that passion for travel resurfaced, and he formally joined the family business, Big Five, in 2002. Six years later, he became president of the luxury travel his father founded in1973 in Nairobi, Kenya.
The final keynote speaker of the day, Ashish Sanghrajka, focused on the best time to expose kids to family travel.
Sanghrajka, who is President of Big Five Tours & Expeditions, described the "sweet spot" as any time between the ages of 5 and 15. "Kids are sponges between these ages," he said. "They hear everything, and even if we think they aren't listening, they're listening and they are curious and engaged because they want to make an impact." Sanghrajka went on to outline the importance of providing kids with context for why travel is important, noting that in many cases, the "why" is the most important message parents can pass along to kids when families venture away from home. A short Facebook Live interview with Ashish Sanghrajka "Whatever destination you're going to, you have to ask yourself a key question: 'How is my being there going to make a difference?'" he noted.
