What Attendees Are Saying:

“We usually see an average of 40-50 attendees for our monthly educational programs. Our closing registration came in at 80 with people still trying to register up to the day of the event. Through her background working in the tourism industry she knows what she is talking about and gets real with you. The information she obtained from interviewing meeting planners are candid and genuine just like Junvi.”

Blair Green, Chapter President
HSMAI – Dallas/Fort Worth

Junvi’s presentation was high-energy and incredibly informative.  She was very organized, well-spoken and  knew her subject matter, but it was her positive and fun demeanor that had the entire audience engaged.  She was one of our best received speakers of the year and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to have a better understanding of Gen X and how to market to them effectively.

I had the pleasure of attending an HSMAI luncheon and the speaker was Ms. Junvi Ola, she is an expert on marketing to the Millennial’s who are the next big thing as far as guest in the hotel industry. Junvi is both full of knowledge and a pretty good presenter as well. If you are looking to jump start a new marketing campaign targeting the millennial market then look no further than her!

Junvi gave a fantastic  presentation to our hotel members about marketing to millennials, and the feedback we received from the participants was extremely positive. The tips Junvi offered were fresh, relevant, and insightful. The examples she provided were specific to our industry which made it especially helpful and easy to understand. She took plenty of time to answer questions, and her enthusiasm made the presentation even more effective and engagingI would highly recommend Junvi  to anyone looking for an exceptional speaker to discuss best techniques for marketing travel to Gen X!
