am strongly determined to bring a positive and creative contribution to the World Tourism Network and help this meaningful initiative to become a truly inclusive, international network promoting sustainable, regenerative travel, tourism and hospitality.
Originally from France, I am an Eco-entrepreneur and a Global Sustainable Tourism Development and Marketing Expert committed to the achievement of the SDGs. I am also a Trainer, Public Speaker and Mentor specialized in impact entrepreneurship.
For over 25 years, I have gained international experience either as Consultant or Director / Manager within the framework of global initiatives and projects benefiting developing and emerging countries, for a variety of service sectors including sustainable tourism, hospitality, leisure and environmental utilities.
In 2005, I started a new life in South Korea where I held several managerial positions, including as Director of Global Programs of the ST-EP Foundation, before becoming an independent Consultant in 2014 and eventually starting my own businesses, Millennium Destinations in 2016 then Herost in 2020.
