After a few trial runs I
found an industry to work in where I can have fun getting a job done!
I really enjoy meeting tourism operators and other industry folk to "chew
the fat" over current issues, opportunities and working out what makes a visitor 'tick'.
Education-wise I've got the
"paper-work" covered with a Bachelor of Commerce (specialising in marketing)
and a Certificate in Direct Marketing. I've also gained experience
in the automotive, FMCG, and banking industries.
Working for Tourism New Zealand
gave me a good grounding to the industry, from there I experienced working
in the regions working directly with tourism operators. This is where
I saw the potential to put my experience to good practice assisting tourism
businesses achieve their goals.
I regularly travel throughout
New Zealand in order to keep abreast of industry developments and to experience
the many wonderful features of this country. I am deeply passionate
about New Zealand and take enormous pride in being able to assist and support tourism businesses develop into world class experiences.
