Smart Tourism Testimonials

Smart Tourism has helped many businesses with their marketing strategies and initiatives. Here is just a sample of the feedback received:

Freda Newton, Managing Director, Loch Ness by Jacobite:

Lesley is a great person to work with and rather than us chasing her she is more often than not chasing us for deadlines. She did an outstanding job for us at Jacobite.

Aileen Lamb, Tourism Manager, Scottish Enterprise:

Having worked with Lesley on a number of key tourism projects, I can safely say that she is one of the most conscientious, results driven tourism professionals I’ve had the pleasure to collaborate with. Lesley instantly “gets it” and sees not only the strategic picture but also the practical elements of each project. She applies a logical approach and will only ever deliver the highest quality input. Her appreciation of both large and small business issues and the positive impact that great marketing can have is an invaluable attribute. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working on projects with her, including ‘ScotlandHour’ where Lesley & I are co-hosts. I look forward to continuing this terrific working relationship.

Sam Weston, Marketing Manager, 80 Days:

I’ve collaborated with Lesley on a few tourism projects and beyond being extremely talented at what she does, she’s genuinely an absolute pleasure to work with.  Professional, creative and highly organised, Lesley is also a talented writer and blogger and somewhat of a social media guru (although I know she’ll hate me using that word). A credit to the Scottish tourism industry, her sector knowledge is near encyclopaedic and her passion for the job at hand never waivering. I wholeheartedly recommend anyone looking for marketing consultancy, project management or market research to give Lesley a call.

Gordon Morrison, Chief Executive, Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions (ASVA):

Lesley is great to work with. She really ‘knows her stuff’ in tourism sector engagement and event planning, accompanying you on your journey and selflessly sharing knowledge along the way. She is enthusiastic and great at working to deadlines. Lesley is a superb communicator and we look forward to continuing our working relationship.

Susan Russell, Head of Marketing, Criton:

I’ve known Lesley for a number of years and have worked with her on a range of projects. Working across Scotland’s tourism sector she brings expertise and professionalism to all the projects she works on. As a core member of the Women In Tourism (WIT) Board, Lesley leads on our Communications strategy and working group and her passion and drive for the work of WIT is unwavering.
