7. Hichame Assi – World citizen

The hardcore music-loving man of Syrian-British mixed heritage is at home everywhere, and yet does not call any specific country home. The travel technology specialist and CEO of HotelsCombined shares on his dynamic background, his perspectives on travel as a service provider and as a leisure traveller himself, as well as his perspectives on technology.

 “I see my phone as an extension of my mind…I don’t think it makes me dumber, it just frees my mind up to do other things. Maybe to think differently, or to be a bit more objective about stuff, rather than having to store information that I used to. I think it’s important that the mind is thinking and processing, and I don’t think that (has been) taken away.” – Hichame Assi (15:27)
