Philippe Bourguignon

EBAY DIRECTOR AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF EURO DISNEY

Ideally suited to being either a conference keynote speaker or an after dinner motivational speaker, French businessman Philippe Bourguignon has some great stories to tell from his time at The Walt Disney Company, Euro Disney, Club Méditerranée (Club Med) and eBay.

Bourguignon has also been CEO of the World Economic Forum, a member of the executive committee of the World Trade & Tourism Council, co-founder of the Monthly Barometer, chairman of the board for Miraval Resort & Spa and fine wine company Vinfolio, executive co-chairman of Exclusive Resorts (which has multi-million dollar residences around the world), and vice chairman of Revolution Places (a company that promotes holidays with a healthy lifestyle). Miraval and Vinfolio are both Revolution companies.

As a motivational speaker, Bourguignon can explain how – as chairman and CEO – he turned around Club Med, changing the entire culture of the company, altering its pricing policy and branding while making it competitive again. Similarly, as president of Euro Disney, he restructured the organisation, made it financially viable again and surprised the markets with the operating results he achieved.

Philippe can also fascinate audiences with talk of the 14 years he spent with the global hotels group Accor. He joined the company as vice president of development for Asia and the Middle East, became vice president of north American operations and then president for the Asia-Pacific area. Delegates will also be interested in Bourguignon’s 11 years as a board member of eBay.
