What we do

Is your place “worth seeing, but not worth going to see”, to quote Samuel Johnson? Well, that's where we come in.

Because we help places to be great visitor destinations.

We do strategies, action planning, feasibility studies, market analysis, branding strategies and marketing plans. We help sort out tourism organisations and set up partnerships.  We advise on next-stage development.

We bring an external perspective, deep market insight, creative thinking and clear-headed analysis – plus years of practical experience.  We help you see the wood for the trees and sort the sheep from the goats.

We’re not the same as other tourism consultancies.  We don’t write long reports.  You’ll find ours are concise, crystal clear and to-the-point.  Our recommendations are unambiguous.  You won’t be left asking “so what?” or “what now?”.

And you’ll find the way we work strengthens teams and partnerships. We’ve developed a people-centred approach and tried-and-tested techniques that make sure internal and external stakeholders buy in, so that things will happen as a result of our work.

We are a relatively small, specialist independent consultancy (“boutique” to some) – but that’s OK. We’re big enough to take good care of you – you will be extremely important to us, and you will get personal attention from senior people who are strategic, creative and hands-on too. And if we don’t have the specialist expertise in-house, we hand-pick from among our partners to give you exactly the right team for the job.
