WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME

My professional background is varied and complex. Think a combination of business management, events, tourism, traditional and digital marketing, business administration and executive assistance.

Could you do with someone like me on your team?

 

I am a travel enthusiast and a bit of a digital nomad, or perhaps just a slow traveller. I’m particularly passionate about authentic, experiential, activity or language related travel and looking to work with similarly aligned individuals.

Oh and, in case you were wondering, my name is pronounced ‘Yanna’.
