In this month’s Leader in the Spotlight series we talk with Adam Schwab, Founder and CEO of one of Australia’s fastest growing and most profitable E-commerce companies Luxury Escapes about building success based on culture and tech, and how they grew by 20 per cent through a global pandemic.
Luxury Escapes was recognised as one of Australia’s best employers in last year’s AFR Best Places to Work list, and when you spend a few minutes with Adam, it’s not hard to see why. He empowers his people, he inspires, and his passion and pure intellect is to be admired.
And when it comes to leadership, Schwab looks to some of the tech greats, and appreciates and understands their flaws, as well as their great qualities.
If you would like to amplify culture within your organisation, and to network with other great leaders, we invite Brisbane based CEO’s, Directors and C-suite executives to join us for our upcoming breakfast event where Steph will share what it takes to drive engagement and sustain passion within your organisation.

Passionate people are engaged people; and engagement is proven to drive results.
Gallup’s recent meta-analysis revealed that those in the top quartile of engagement delivered 20% higher sales and 21% higher profitability than those in the bottom quartile of engagement.
And yet – passionate, engaged people are the exception, not the rule, because still, after 50 years of Gallup research, 85% of employees worldwide are not engaged or are actively disengaged at work.
