"Everyone has a talent, everyone has a story to tell." Octoos Talents are passionate people with an expertise. Talents would like to share their know-how, their expertise, their passion through an experience/activity. Talents bring emotions to Explorers and allow them to better understand the DNA of a city in an authentic and new angle. In this talk Sebastien will delve further into the Octoos mindset and teach us how to explore a city the right way. Sebastien’s roots come from a mix of French and Spanish cultures and he has lived in several different countries. He worked for a large corporation for 15 years and had the chance to be a Business Angel for early stage companies in parallel. He has had the pleasure of visiting more than 60+ countries and an impressive array of iconic world monuments. His most vivid memories though are the encounters with people. On every trip without fail, he has engaged with locals all around the world. It then became a requisite for him when travelling: meeting people, communicating, exchanging. Because everyone has a hidden talent, because everyone can bring something special to someone else, he had the idea to connect people: to connect local talents and explorers for everyone to share and live a one-of-a-kind experience. Octoos was thus born. Sometimes you meet people who will change your life for the better! It is time to meet, exchange, share and thrive on our talents.
