I first heard of The Turquoise Holiday Company whilst on a summer internship at Conde Nast Traveller. Having realised the magazine world wasn’t quite right for me, I soon turned my attention to all things Turquoise, whose gorgeous branding and family owned and run ethos immediately captured my attention. It is with pure embarrassment, but luckily no regret, that I remember strolling straight into the Turquoise office one morning, requesting a meeting with Marketing Director, now Managing Director, James Bell.

The rest, as they say, is history. Almost seven years later, I still feel incredibly lucky to work in one of the world’s most inspiring, infectious and innovative industries, full to the brim of exceptional people, beautiful places and exciting journeys.
