Episode #17:

Speaking of Doing What You Love

Guest: Henry Harteveldt – Principal of Atmosphere Research Group

On this episode we are speaking do what you love, my brand tenant! My guest happens to embody everything I speak and write about. At a young age, Henry Harteveldt played with toy airplanes and loved the smell of jet fuel. Today he is one of the travel industry’s most well-known and respected analysts and advisors and quoted constantly.

After years with TWA, Continental Airlines and Forrester Research, Henry began Atmosphere Research to provide independent, objective, and trustworthy research on travel industry marketing, product, distribution, digital commerce, and future trends. He’s on an airplane more than he is in his own bed and he is my friend Henry Harteveldt. This was recorded pre-pandemic but the travel tips Henry shares are always valuable. Take a listen!
