I am a freelance responsible tourism & market access expert based in The Netherlands. I have a background in foreign language teaching and several years working for Fair Trade Tourism in South Africa as the European Representative and Sales Manager. I have extensive knowledge of the latest responsible tourism developments in southern Africa and globally as well as the demand for responsible tourism experiences by the European travel trade and travelers.
My work for organizations such as the Import Promotion Desk and CBI focuses on coaching & training smaller responsible tourism businesses to improve market access and meet supply chain requirements. As a qualified Travelife for Tour Operator and Green Globe auditor and sustainable tourism certification expert I both support and assess tourism businesses working on their responsible tourism actions and awareness. By joining WTN I hope to continue to support tourism SMEs in developing countries with networking and finding the route to market in what is no doubt going to be a very tough tourism recovery period.
