Who I am
My name is Jacqueline Whitaker and Wanderlust Marketing is my new company, I set it up in 2014 to help visitor economy businesses with marketing and tourism development.
As a tourism consultant I am passionate about the visitor economy and have over 25 years experience working in public sector tourism. I have worked with a wide variety of tourism businesses including visitor attractions, accommodation providers, restaurants and retail sector businesses. I am really excited that now my expertise gained over the years in marketing and PR, brand management, organising events, festivals and campaigns, running tourism organisations, copywriting and business support can help so many other tourism business to flourish – including yours.
In case you are worried I also have a HND in Hotel and Catering Management, a Post Graduate certificate in Tourism Studies, a CPD in Search and Social Media Marketing, a Further and Adult Education Teachers Certificate and have done many other courses over the years in everything from customer care to business planning – and I am still learning so watch this space.
A few other things
I love my new company, but I love my adorable Llasa Apso dog Kenzie more (looking fab below) and when I am not working I can be found playing with him or taking him for walks. I read vast amounts of books, they take you to places you can only dream of (who wouldn’t like to visit Discworld just once), let you discover new things about life or encourage you to try something different. I also love making cakes and have inherited my Nan’s recipes which I am planning on blogging about when I have tested them all – this could take quite a while – and as you will discover from the Wanderlust Blog I love to travel around our beautiful country and encourage other to see how gorgeous it is.
