“I have known Jo professionally for over 20 years since first we worked together on events for an automotive brand at The Landmark London.

Truthfully, she is a consummate professional that knows her industry inside out and her genuine passion, dedication and warmth mean she is a delight to work with.

More recently, Jo and one of her portfolio properties, the Vintry & Mercer Hotel, supported me in the delivery of a unique, high-profile European media event for Toyota Motor Europe. In my experience, she really does take the time to understand your brief, what your clients expectations and standards are and will then go above and beyond that to help secure and deliver the best event possible for all parties.

I appreciate her honesty in terms of deliverables as in what their properties can and cannot offer you – let’s be honest, when organising an event this is critical and can waste so much time if you are misled from the outset. Long after the contracts are signed, she will be ensuring your event is progressing well and seeing if there is anymore support needed. Her commitment to you as a client is second to none.”

Denise Clifford, Freelance Event Director

“I have known and worked with JG Collection for many years, and most recently with Victoria regarding a property in Turkey and John with a collection in Scotland. I have always held their portfolio of clients in high regards and enjoy learning about any new clients they take on – They are very very good at keeping me up to date. When I move ahead with a new partner they make the introductions very easy and smooth. Plus it is good to know they are also there to help iron out any wrinkles in any new partnership. They are also very supportive with engaging sales training and FAM trips, either with invitations to theirs or for ones we create ourselves. I find them a very professional and personable representation company, with whom I enjoy working.”

Senior Product Manager, Elegant Resorts

“In truth, there are many representation companies in the market, but there are few that show the experience, knowledge and professionalism that John and his team consistently demonstrate. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any hotel group considering employing their services.”

David Taylor, Divisional MD, BCD

“We have worked with JG Collection for some years now and the support and service levels John Green and his team provide are unmatched! We really like the portfolio of hotels JG Collection represent.”
Sven Wicander, Co-owner, WizMedia International 

“The Chairmen & CEO’s of The Appointment Group have had close affiliation with John Green for many years and would recommend his services very highly. He and his staff are always helpful, knowledgeable and keen to help find the best accommodation for our very varied clientele.

Their portfolio represents a diverse and interesting selection of some of the best hotels in their locations, and they work together with all elements in a great partnership.

Their relationship with each individual property is key in delivering us the best of what we need, and happy clients enjoying a great experience means everyone can reap the rewards.”

John Gianquitto, Chairman The Appointment Group

“JGC are always so incredibly proactive and always on hand to help secure a booking for me. I work closely with Victoria and know I can trust my clients with the team both here and in the hotels, which is priceless.”

Clare Levy, Owner, Different Planet Travel

 

“I have had the pleasure of working with John at Four Seasons before I moved onto Mandarin Oriental, One&Only and Banyan Tree.

Since then I have found him and his team to be one of the best representation companies in the world. Their network is incredible and they have deep relationships with the key clients that have helped drive awareness and most important, shift market share for hotels entering the market.

I would recommend him without hesitation as my first choice to help any hotel really penetrate the UK market.”

David Spooner, former Executive Vice President, Preferred Hotels & Resorts

“Working with Jo and her team is nothing but a pleasure. We’ve worked together at her properties around Europe and never been disappointed, I don’t even need to see the venues to know that if I put forward at JG property it will be amazing. Can’t recommend them enough.

Gavin Farley, Co-Founder In2Events

This Combination is enhanced by the fantastic training and huge wealth of knowledge, Victoria and the team give. Their network group is outstanding, building so many great relationships with Hotels, and clients. Victoria and her team deliver on every level, consistently.”

“OTUK has a strong working relationship with the JG Collection, Victoria Whatley in particular, who always keeps us updated on exciting news, not to mention her smiley and cheerful persona when visiting our office. Their portfolio of hotels are well placed around the country, making it easy for us to create first class stays at each destination. As we continue to work with the JG Collection, we look forward to hearing about any new additions!”
