Biography

TOPICS: BUSINESS, ADVENTURE, TOURISM

John Anderson was educated at Scots College, Wellington and Victoria University. At age 22 he went overseas to the UK for twelve months and returned twenty years later with a wife, family and a business – Contiki Tours.

With just twenty five pounds, he found a way to not only see Europe, but to start his own business.
When he eventually sold the business, it was and remains one of the world’s major tour operators. Contiki is now firmly established as an international brand and is a household name in New Zealand, Australia and Canada.

Subsequently as a member of the Auckland Rotary Club, John conceived the idea of a major fundraising opportunity.
This became the Ellerslie Flower Show, which is now established as the largest event of its type in the southern hemisphere. This was established with the assistance of the Chelsea Flower Show organisation.

John tells the story of how he developed a simple idea into one of the world’s major tour operators, his determination to succeed, the belief in himself and his successes and failures.

The story is full of extremely funny and sad anecdotes, which leave a marked effect on the emotions of his audiences.
