About my work

For the past 15 years, I have been supporting the tourism sector to adapt operational and management systems to those that bring value, tangible benefit, and empowerment to people in the destination, while responsibly managing impacts on natural resources. With that focus, I have worked with over 200 tourism business throughout southern Africa to network innovative solutions to pervasive challenges for a more sustainable and inclusive tourism industry in the region. I have served on the ExCo of the Southern African Youth Travel Confederation (SAYTC) and the Sustainable Tourism Certification Alliance Africa (the Alliance) where I chaired the working group on standards and best practice, and am currently an Associate Member of the non-profit company, Better Tourism Africa, and Africa’s only representative on the Accreditation Panel of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC).
