I was shocked to discover John Pasztor is going to turn 70 this year, because he’s got the energy and appearance of someone much younger.
John, the 220th person I’ve met on my quest to have lunch with 500 strangers, is one of those people with an endless supply of stories.
In the early days of his career, John was an accountant, a company secretary and a management consultant. But no matter what his role was, John could usually be found chatting to someone. So it made perfect sense when he eventually transitioned into sales.
During his years in sales, John was often asked to entertain clients or even take them sightseeing. So it made perfect sense when he eventually transitioned into another career – tourism.
John’s business, 24 Hours In Sydney, runs guided tours that show the secret side of Sydney, from the forgotten history to the hidden bars. Unfortunately, 24 Hours in Sydney, like tourism businesses the world over, has been hit hard by the pandemic.
Thankfully, the international border has recently reopened and office workers are slowly returning to the city, so hopefully it won’t be long before life returns to normal. John’s got a lot of stories just waiting to be shared.
