About Me


It could be said that my interest in tourism started early.  I grew up in the North East of England with coast, countryside & heritage nearby and early day-trips & holidays formed lasting memories.  In the late '60s, it seems it was a little pester-power on my part that led my family to join the new tide of package holiday-makers heading off to Europe's emerging destinations.  Some of the problems associated with unplanned tourism development were already evident but my interest was sealed.  A few years later, I  enroled as one of the earliest students to take an HND in Travel & Tourism.


My career began in tour-operating, first to short & later long-haul destinations, including a spell in the fast & furious work of interline & travel industry holidays.  I then moved into hotel reservations and later, sales & marketing.  Working alongside colleagues in business & leisure, I specialised in the corporate events market, often collaborating with industry associates - airlines, tourist boards, convention bureaux & destination management companies (DMCs).  More recently, freelance work has widened my range to include travel managment and leisure events.  Along the way, I have been blessed to travel to some wonderful destinations, meet & work with some very impressive people and to see some events from the inside-out.  


Some years ago, I decided to return to college, where I completed a BSc in Environmental Management, then an MSc in Business Strategy, Politics & the Environment.  This led me to begin working independently and to offer consultancy in sustainability for the tourism & events sectors as well as general freelance support.  I am an Associate of the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA), an Authorised Auditor for the Travelife Sustainability System and an ISO specialist for tourism & events with IMSM Ltd.
