Consultant Experience

With more than 20 years’ experience working in travel and tourism, my projects at NEF Consulting involve strategic advice, community engagement, socio-economic and environmental impact evaluations, and training for a wide range of private, public and third sector clients in the UK and internationally. I’m also an ESCR funded PhD scholar at the University of Surrey, researching employment quality in service sector employment. Previously, I managed The Travel Foundation’s TIMM project in collaboration with PwC, which assessed TUI Groups’ holistic impact in Cyprus.Please get in touch via e-mail to

NEF Consulting is the transition consultancy. Founded in 2008 and owned by the New Economics Foundation, we help organisations in the journey towards a new sustainable economy.

We help organisations to think differently about environmental and social impact, or how they collaborate, interact and make decisions.

We take organisations beyond where they can go alone, unleashing the potential of their people and helping them to become ready for the future.

Organisations who work with us:
