Sales & Marketing Director
French speaking and Southern European markets
Julien started in the travel industry in 2006 holding the position of Sales & Marketing Manager for different luxury hotel groups like Banyan Tree and Six Senses, boutique-hotels and DMCs. His role was to promote them, to manage their brand image and to develop their sales in the French speaking and southern European markets. He has all over those years been working very closely with all partners of the travel trade: tour operators, travel agencies, tourism boards, MICE and airline companies.
He is trilingual (French, English and Spanish), a passionate traveller, and holds two Bachelor’s degrees in Foreign Languages and in International Hotel Management. Based in France, him and his deputy are covering the French, Belgium, Swiss and Iberic markets for the partners of TM Portfolio.
Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Events Specialist
A sales and marketing professional specialising in the the UK meetings and incentive market, Henriette Speed started her career in 1996 as part of the pre-opening team for the Westin Dragonara. This led to opportunities in London with the Starwood Global Sales Office where she handled key MICE accounts for the group’s international business and forging strong, lasting relationships throughout the industry.
She joined Kerzner International in 2004 to launch their in-house MICE sales team for the One&Only brand as Director, Group and Incentive Sales, and successfully re-introduced the brand to this market sector, making the name synonymous with high-end incentives. Responsibilities grew further when Kerzner opened one of the most exciting hotel projects of the decade, Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai, with Henriette heavily involved in sales strategy planning and implementation for both Kerzner brands.
Since 2010, Henriette offers bespoke sales and marketing solutions in partnership with TM Portfolio for those wanting to target the specialised meetings and incentive market, and has worked with brands in the Indian Ocean, America, Europe and the Indian Subcontinent.
