Brett J Sterenson


Presentation bent more towards planners as it provides a behind the scenes look at the decision process behind hotels accepting or rejecting business. Hotel salespersons will be able to participate and provide their own touches. Gives new understandings to planners on hotel methodology, tips for better positioning their groups and meetings, and enhanced negotiation technique. Table exercises are included as well.


Brett brings nineteen years of supplier side experience both from the hotel side and the last 10 years as a small business owner. Brett worked in government sales for both Millennium Hotels and Resorts out of Boston and Kimpton Hotels out of Washington, DC. His firm, Hotel Lobbyists, was founded in April 2007. He’s also a fourteen year member of SGMP with five years on the local National Capital Board, three years on the Gilmer Institute of Learning, and fresh off a four year term on the National Board of Directors as Treasurer. With more time for himself now, Brett speaks at SGMP and MPI chapter events, national events, and CVB sponsored educational days. He is married with a 4yr old son and 2yr old daughter.
