Speaker Experience

Fell in love with tourism as a publisher of listings magazines and has been in thrall ever since. Over 35 years experience as a destination manager, the last 29 of which have been very happily spent in the New Forest. Member of many national tourism reform activities, past president and fellow of the Tourism Management Institute, awarded OBE for services to tourism in 2005 and best personal contribution and best destination in the World Responsible Tourism Awards in 2007. Pre-occupied with making common sense common practice and creating common networks/relationships to deliver common benefit. Author of the VERB model and the principles of the Economics of Visitor Happiness. Happy to expose my passion to any audience that is interested in how "good" tourism can be an arbiter of locally resilient economies and a deep sense community spirit..................and "World Peace"!
