Douglas Diggle, BBA, MBA
CEO at Across Oceans Group & CEO at Cruise Shipping Association.


As a business leader, I am always asked what is the key to success? But it goes without saying that there is no formula or key it takes a lot of hard work, and the perseverance to overcome challenges and turn them into opportunities to learn and grow. And once you do, you’ll often find that the goal-posts have moved, and you’ll be seeking a different and new kind of success. I am passionate about doing the right thing for people, clients and our communities. Because of my proven leadership ability and background in travel, cruise lines, aviation, maritime, finance and travel retail, I contribute to leadership at corporations at an efficient and elite level. Connect with me on LinkedIn:
