Hi everyone,

I hope you and your families are staying safe and well in these difficult times.

It has certainly been an interesting time for those of us in the travel-related sector.

On a brighter note, I was recently invited by Rita Trehan to interview for her podcast series, ‘Daring to’.

Rita is a former Fortune 200 Chief Human Resources Officer turned author and HR consultant, with a long track record of helping CEOs to create, transform and build sustainable businesses.

Her podcast explores how some very high-profile CEOs and entrepreneurs navigate today’s business world – so I felt very privileged to have been invited to speak.

Inevitably, a fair bit of the conversation focused on how businesses will fare in today’s extremely challenging climate – and how business itself may be transformed by the impact of the pandemic.

At the same time, the interview was an opportunity to reflect on my personal journey towards the launch of the PLIQO bag – and some of the specific challenges and rewards along the way.

The podcast is 42 minutes long – and if you’d like to hear the interview in full, here’s the link:


Thanks as always to all of you out there who are fans of the PLIQO bag – and wishing you all well until the worst of the current crisis is over.

Patrick and Team PLIQO
