Coaching & Advising

As professional educators and entrepreneurs with expertise in product and market development, strategic planning, visitor experience, marketing, sustainability, community and destination development, we provide a range of coaching and advisory services. 


Over the years this has included:


  • 1 to 1 coaching and advising individuals and businesses on a confidential basis (you’ll never see these on our project lists)!

  • 1 to 1 or small group coaching to build products, skills, services or experiences as part of a larger project

  • Acting as a sounding board for you to bounce off ideas  with someone you can trust

  • Recommending other professionals when the advice you need is beyond our areas of expertise



Professional Writing for Tourism

Need a tourism expert to be your scribe? Looking for professional writing skills to help research, write or edit a tourism document or publication? Over the years we’ve been invited to research and write, co-author, and/or contribute to a wide variety of tourism publications. Here are a few examples of recent projects we’ve worked on. Visit our Resource section for samples of some of the other tools, case studies and publications we’ve created.
