Why Do You Love What You Do?

"I feel incredibly lucky to be part of this team and work with the people I do. The camaraderie and being surrounded by supportive colleagues on site makes the early starts and late finishes that little bit easier."

Holly McLay

Business Development Manager

Holly began her career in luxury event planning and management, specialising in large scale brand events and high-profile private parties. A passion for travel later took Holly around the world, with time spent living and working in both Moscow and New York before joining Quintessentially Travel in the fast-growing Incentives Team. Exploring new countries at every opportunity, Holly is always on the lookout for emerging destinations, unique properties and inspiring experiences to share with clients. 

Why Do You Love What You Do?

"With seven continents at your disposal when responding to a brief, and the continuous demand to push limits and create money-can’t-buy experiences, it’s impossible to become complacent. We are lucky to have the power to create lifelong memories and completely transform relationships through travel experiences."

Odette Peel

Senior Incentives Manager

Odette has been in the event industry for over 9 years, managing a variety of international events from conferences, exhibitions, incentives, festivals and much more. Specialising in large events up to 10,000 people, the industry has taken Odette to all four corners of the globe. With a heartfelt passion for travel, Odette found her calling in the incentives market at Quintessentially Travel, where her constant wanderlust has allowed her to curate unforgettable experiences for clients across the globe, from Norway’s wilderness and Northern Lights chasing to motorbiking through Cape Town’s Winelands. 

Why Do You Love What You Do?

"I love inspiring clients to push their boundaries and to embrace new destinations and experiences. Highlights for me on any trip are witnessing guests experience something new for the very first time, be it driving along an iconic road behind the wheel of a luxury vehicle or simply sampling a different culture." 

Tom Harrington

Account Director

Tom’s career started at a leading auction house in the world of motoring events, organising their global calendar of sales and events. With multiple world records broken, Tom took his passion for live events, travel, and an unwavering love of cars, agency side. Tom continued to deliver complex events for some of the world’s leading automotive brands, before arriving at Quintessentially Travel. Since joining the team Tom has further honed his exceptional customer and client service skills across many of the team’s leading accounts.

Why Do You Love What You Do?

"To create and deliver experiences that fulfil a dream is a true privilege. However, you’re only as good as your last event so I love the constant and ever-changing challenge." 

Natasha Barnett

Senior Incentives Executive

A past life in the music industry before joining Quintessentially Travel three years ago, Tash has since been responsible for the planning and execution of a range of exciting and creative events and incentives. She enjoys creating unique and enthralling programmes around the globe. With the curation of bespoke private island promotions, exclusive city breaks, remarkable driving experiences and memorable desert adventures, Tash’s passion for imaginative concepts and commitment to flawless delivery is reflected in her glowing guest and client feedback. 

Why Do You Love What You Do?

"I love being able to dissect client preferences and create custom programmes that will exceed all guest expectations, proactively providing creative solutions to elevate and enhance a programme to its fullest potential. I take great pride in my dedication to excellence and customer service throughout all stages of the event process and of course, I love bringing our ideas to life."

Louis Ramsey

Incentives Executive

Louis has four strong years in the MICE industry that have seen him work across a whole breadth of events; from kick-off meetings and being an inbound UK events specialist to large pharmaceutical charity conferences for over 1,000 people. Travelling the globe in the process, Louis moved to Quintessentially Travel where his passion for automotive and golf has seen him weave these interests into a range of exclusive incentives around the world. 

Why Do You Love What You Do?

"I love what I do because my job allows me to organise trips of a lifetime for individuals – I’m often the first point of contact during the guest registration process, so to meet them in person and see their enjoyment whilst on a trip is truly priceless. Recently when launching a car at Le Mans I was lucky enough to witness guests excitedly see their new car for the first time; a total privilege." 

Sebastian Petragallo

Business Development Executive

With a background in the Polo industry, travel was always part of the job and has taken Sebastian to the USA, Argentina and New Zealand where he trained young horses, managed estancias and looked after clients and their polo programmes. Combining his interpersonal and networking skills with his love of travel, Sebastian joined the team just over a year ago in the perfect role that allows him to share his enthusiasm for using travel as a tool for brands to engage and incentivise.

Why Do You Love What You Do?

"I love discovering and tailoring truly unique experiences that reflect a brand and their message. Being able to deliver these moments on site and see happy guests is certainly a bonus!"
