Human eXperience Consulting offers expert advice and bespoke coaching covering all aspects of Guest Experience and Service.

Your people are the key
to your success

my approach

Guest Experience is the cornerstone of the hospitality business.
In reality your first clients are also your colleagues. They have the potential to be your best company ambassadors. They are the primary point of contact which creates the most emotion, loyalty and value.
That is my belief. That is my passion. That is where my expertise lies.
That is what I would like to share with you.

Who am I?

An ESSEC Business School graduate, a passionate scuba diver, a nature protection volunteer and above all a happy father of 3 young boys, I joined the hospitality business out of curiosity and have stayed out of passion and belief.

Dedicated to these core values – altruism, sharing, ethics, environment and biodiversity protection – I remain pragmatic, detail oriented and dedicated to success.

  • Luxury Hotels – 13 years
  • Health & Wellness – 7 years
