I can offer a rapid appraisal of any potential or existing tourism project. A written report will help you implement procedures that can improve sustainability and marketing and perhaps win awards or accreditation. I bring the following experience –

TRAVEL – Ten years’ as an award-winning travel writer and photographer, during which time I visited over 70 countries, staying at accommodation of varying styles from township guesthouses to high-end luxury lodges.

SCIENCE – As a science graduate I can understand the latest research in the fields of climate change, renewable energy and ecology. I can suggest measures you can take to minimise your environmental impact and enhance biodiversity.

ARCHITECTURE – From researching many high profile features about vernacular and green architecture, I have a database of knowledge – building materials, technology, designers and architects – that can help you develop plans for more environmentally sound and aesthetically interesting construction.

DEVELOPMENT – Five years’ working with VSO and WWF in the South Pacific means I am familiar with the aid world and tools such as logframe analysis and rapid rural appraisals to help with proposal writing and community involvement.

WRITING – I have contributed hundreds of news items and features to a wide range of national press, from the Daily Telegraph and Financial Times to The Ecologist and The Guardian. I can help you write engaging, grammatically correct copy for brochures, for your blog or website or for an application for an award or accreditation.

PHOTOGRAPHY – My work is represented by Getty Images and Axiom Photographic Agency and has been published worldwide. I have an eye for detail and can take photographs for reports or marketing purposes.

MARKETING – I have an advanced certificate in marketing from the Chartered Institute of Marketing and can help you develop multi-media marketing strategies and recommend networks that will be useful to improve your business and make it more profitable.

Please contact me for more information. This is a new service that I am trialling in 2015 and my fees are very reasonable – and negotiable – to reflect this.

Any feedback much appreciated. Is there a need for such an all-round, reasonably priced service?
