French Factor

French Factor is the brainchild of two professionals with a background in the hospitality industry who relish the
challenge of designing exceptional events.

Driven by the desire to build on their 33 years of combined experience in high-end events management, Franck VALLAURI et Charlyne BOURGEAUD developed the French Factor concept.

Their ambition is “to create programmes we can be proud of, which stand out from the crowd, in synergy with partners we believe in”.

Managing director

Franck was born on the French Riviera and has 26 years’ experience in the MICE industry, during which time he has built up robust business leadership and management expertise. Passionate about this sector, he has contributed to the success of landmark projects, working with a wide range of brands and agencies. Franck has an instinctive understanding of his clients’ needs and provides highly creative solutions which consistently exceed expectations.

Associate Director

After studying international trade and communications and starting out in the world of yachting, Charlyne has enjoyed a successful career in events management for the last 7 years. Her keen intelligence has given her a sure grasp of the events management model and her enthusiasm means that she is outstanding at managing large-scale projects for a high-profile international clientele. With her passion and fine eye for detail, Charlyne can pinpoint client expectations and is tireless in her pursuit of total client satisfaction.
