Profile updated 19/08/18
I am an accomplished Tour Manager and London Blue Badge Guide with over 30 years of guiding and tour managing experience. I am able to offer a unique insight and specialist knowledge about the areas and countries that I work in, thereby giving my guests a greater touring experience. I am a highly determined and energetic individual, who enjoys getting different personalities to gel together on the tour. I accomplish this through my own enthusiasm, strong leadership abilities, common sense, pragmatism and a good sense of humour. I have excellent presentation and communication skills. I am flexible and unflappable and realise the importance of maintaining a good professional relationship when liaising with suppliers and colleagues. I enjoy working with a range of different clients in a variety of environments.
History and travel have long been two great interests of mine and I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to combine both in my working life. I have travelled extensively throughout the World for work and pleasure. I recently took a four year career break so that I could fulfil a dream of riding a bicycle around the World. This trip took me through almost thirty different countries and brought me into contact with people from all over the World.
