Tourism Consultant Bio's
Desley is proud to say she has worked for New Zealand Tourism Guide since 2000 and has seen plenty of development to the www.tourism.net.nz website over the years. This also applies to how travellers have taken to the many technology changes that have shaped travel over the years including the explosive use of mobile.
With a keen interest in seeing all parts of New Zealand, Desley and her husband opted to sell up and travel the country in a specially designed house bus. This gives a new meaning to 'taking your work with you'.
Paul has extensive experience in the New Zealand tourism industry in sales and marketing roles and has family ties in the field dating back to 1879!
With a career initially focused on the coordination of special event / group travel itineraries, Paul has, since 2002, focused on marketing New Zealand tourism businesses to the ever increasing number of travellers to this country via a range of New Zealand Tourism Guide products and services.
When Paul isn't working, there's a good chance you'll find him pedaling around The Port Hills in Christchurch on his mountain bike.
