Tourism Ventures for a Better World, with Jennifer Viloria, CEO of Inspired Ventures and Founder of Isla investments
HOSCON's first female guest speaker of the year is Jennifer Viloria, serial tourism entrepreneur and investor who is the CEO of Inspired Ventures and Founder of Isla investments.
Originally from a poor rural neighbourhood in the Philippines, Jennifer moved to the UK and completed her BSc degree while working full-time to cover the fees. This translated into a lucrative finance and consultancy career with ING, AMP Asset Management (where she managed a £150m portfolio), CBRE and PKF (where she was Head of Hotel Research).
Having given up her corporate career for family reasons, Jennifer is now a serial entrepreneur and investor in business start-ups with a focus on ethical tourism and social responsibility. One of her own ventures - Inspired Escapes (www.inspiredescapes.com/) combines fundraising and voluteering projects with trips and adventures to must-see global destinations. She is also a Member of the Board of Trustees of In-visible Charity and a Mentor for Cherie Blair Foundation for Women.
