Short Story about You and your role in tourism

I am a Swiss German Boutique Tour Operator for Southern Africa in Cape Town, a Tourism Journalist and Copy Writer, with a background in international PR&Marketing and Advertising. I have been involved in tourism in Southern Africa for 24 years.
Since I started working with a business mentor myself, I embraced thinking out of the box and have been able to recognize new opportunities ever since. I love adding value to others and enjoy a good exchange of energy and ideas. I believe that we can uplift each other and turn ideas into real business opportunities. The most important ingredients are optimism and an open mind. During the current crisis, this is more important than ever and a real challenge for many. Positive changes can only happen if we are in the right frame of mind.

Services you can offer to Champion the Needs of Others

My services: I can give local accommodation providers tips and ideas how to generate #leads through their own #website to grow their direct client database, create better #content for their website, attract and collaborate with reputable tour operators more successfully etc. etc.

My wish: Brainstorming collaboration and networking ideas with other out of the box thinkers in the industry. If you get some creative minds together, anything is possible ; ).

Description

It was love at first sight: During my first visit as a Swiss German Tourism Journalist many moons ago, South Africa captured my heart instantly. It was only a matter of time until I decided to swap the safe haven Switzerland with South Africa. It was the beginning of an adventure of a lifetime. Southern Africa is incredibly rich in warm hospitality and natural beauty. It is impossible not to be touched by the enthralling energy of the African people and the land. At African Twist Travel we create personal journeys that connect international travelers with authentic Africa and leave them wanting to return again and again.
I am also a Freelance Journalist and Copy Writer (in German) and the Editor of Swiss Review Southern Africa, the magazine for Swiss expats.
