What I Can Provide
Speaking & Training
I am known by people who witness me speak as the master storyteller, a skill I have developed during my my 25 years as a public speaker. I am in demand as a keynote speaker in the travel, Social Media and cruise ship communities. My speaking can provide another tool to promote your business at conferences, seminars and public events, in addition to train your staff about Social Media and/or public speaking. Furthermore, I am an experienced radio presenter and guest, having appeared live in radio studios on four continents.
Social Media Consulting and Management
I have proven results in building an engaged audience. Having a large following on Social Media is not enough, engagement is the key, and with engagement comes influence. I can show you how to create influence on Social Media – and can operate your accounts on your behalf.
My Social Media content reaches millions of people every week. I am a founder of the Twitter travel chat #TRLT (The Road Less Travelled) , one of the most popular and successful travel chats in the world where we often reach more than 1 million Twitter accounts and 15 million impressions in a 3 hour period. My Collections are often featured on Google+ reaching more than 2 million people every week. I can also provide short-term management of your Social Media accounts that will allow you to accelerate your Social Media growth and presence by utilising my skills.
My Klout score (a measure of Social Media influence) is currently around 74, which confirms me not only as a strong influencer on Social Media, but that I also rank amongst the elite of Social Media influencers amongst independent travel media.
Want to promote your destination to a large and loyal audience? Using my personal experience with your destination or services, I can formulate an online and offline campaign by using my Social Media and photography to create compelling content.
Writing & Photography
I can provide high quality photographs and writing that would enhance your online presence. Excellent images are vital to improve your profile on the Internet, and examples of my strong photographic skills can be found on in my Photo Galleries. My writing can vary from short information pieces (as seen on most blogs) to longer travel writing – excerpts of which can be read in The Story Behind the Photo.
I have a loyal and engaged group of wonderful followers and fans on Social Media that monitor my travels throughout the world. I regularly update my Social Media platforms about my current travels and location, which in turn, actively promotes the area I am staying, and this occurs whether I am on a media trip or travelling independently.
My top five markets are United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India and Australia. I have a strong following through Europe in countries such as Germany and Finland. In Asia, my main markets are India and Malaysia. I am one of the few Social Media travel influencers to have a strong audience in the Middle East (particularly United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia) and in Africa (East and Southern). My United Arab Emirates following is strengthened by my regular travel segments on radio station Dubai Eye.
What they read
I am known as the adventurer who takes the road less travelled. My audience are most engaged when I share information from places away from the usual tourist routes, with the most popular destinations anywhere in Middle East and Africa and underappreciated destinations in Europe and Asia. My writing usually involves a travel narrative rather than a listing of sights – for them deeper travel is better travel.
