LEON BURMAN

Combining your passion with business is everyone’s dream and Leon has been incredibly fortunate to do so. After many years working in the events industry, Leon started his first business, ETM Group in 2001 growing the business to 100 employees before selling it in 2011. Seeing a gap in the market for a mid-sized, customer-focused travel and events business, Leon started TRIBE in 2017, naming the business TRIBE as it brought together many of his previous colleagues, clients and suppliers – his tribe. 

 

Leon’s passion is the combination of travel and business events and he has organised incredible programs around the globe. His favourite events include the delivery of gala dinners on Rodeo Drive in LA, overlooking the Taj Mahal in Agra, on the Great Wall in Beijing (complete with a grand piano) and at the Prague Castle with a 48-piece orchestra accompanying a performance by the Czech National Ballet. With many business events now taking place in Australia, Leon is the go-to-guy for corporates who are looking to add spark and flair to their business events – why be ordinary when you can be exceptional? Leon prides himself on  finding the best to do wherever you may be in Australia, or the world.. 

 

Leon holds a Bachelor of Business. He sits on the board of Society of Incentive Excellence Australia NZ (SITE) and is a member of YPO Gold Melbourne. Leon is married with three children.

KELLY GELFAND

With a commerce degree in hand, Kelly made a bold decision to enter the tourism industry as a travel advisor and has never looked back. Kelly is one of the fortunate people who found her passion and combined it with her profession. Nothing makes Kelly happier than checking into a beautiful hotel and discovering a new city. 

 

Kelly has long been known as the ‘go to’ person in travel. If you want to know the best place to stay, where to eat, where to shop and how to fully immerse yourself into a city, Kelly is who you need to know. The travel industry agreed when in 2015 Kelly was recognised as Virtuoso's Most Admired Advisor in Australia/NZ. And now, at TRIBE Travel, Kelly continues to share her exceptional knowledge with her clients, while also mentoring and guiding her team  to achieve success in their travel careers.
