Helping you plan and deliver unforgettable heritage experiences.
Since becoming a freelance consultant in 2002, I have supported more than 150 organisations and community groups to develop and deliver engaging visitor experiences at natural and cultural heritage sites of all shapes and sizes across the UK and Ireland.
I can work with you to imagine a new heritage experience, relaunch an old favourite or test the success of your latest project. Whether you need a critical friend, some heritage training, engagement ideas, a full interpretation strategy or your vision delivered, I can help.
Just call me to talk about what you need:
Interpretation and visitor experience plans – helping you to set out a vision and actions for your heritage project and to support funding bids
Activity and audience development plans – ensuring your heritage project engages diverse audiences from planning to delivery and beyond
Project development and captivating content – turning your vision into an exciting and achievable reality
Evaluating heritage experiences – identifying your aims and outcomes and reviewing your progress and potential
Training and mentoring – sharing more than 25 years of heritage engagement experience to help build your skills and develop your ideas
I am an experienced and approachable freelance consultant who is passionate about telling great stories about our heritage.
For over 25 years I have been helping to find exciting, inspiring and cost-effective ways to engage local people, visitors and volunteers more effectively with special places, collections and stories like yours.
I specialise in working with you to plan, develop and deliver great visitor experiences and engaging heritage interpretation.
Whether you are a small community group or a large heritage organisation, I can bring a fresh pair of eyes and decades of experience to your site or project. This experience ranges from museums, historic buildings and visitor centres to parks, forests, towns and landscapes, and from single leaflets and panels to major exhibitions and full landscape strategies.
