Emma’s based in Auckland. Her role as our Business Development Manager is to source new experiences on the ground across New Zealand. If an incredible luxury lodge has opened Emma knows about it; if there's a new nature experience or winery restaurant, Emma's there!
I have always been interested in travel and tourism, new cultures and exploring. When I finished school I went on an exchange to Denmark for a year before returning to New Zealand to complete a Bachelor of Tourism Management and Marketing. Since then I’ve had various roles within the tourism industry in Australia, London, New Zealand and the United States. I worked for Tourism New Zealand for five years in the business events and premium sectors, during this time NZ product knowledge was incredibly important for my role and I was lucky enough to experience all corners of New Zealand hosting many small groups of travel sellers from across the globe.
After travelling and living abroad you get a new appreciation for what ‘home’ has to offer and there is no place like New Zealand. Whether it be shucking oysters on a beach, hiking to hot pools on a mountain top, 5* accommodation in a treehouse, or simply enjoying a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc amongst vines in the fresh New Zealand air. I’m keen to share my enthusiasm for all things New Zealand and am passionate about curating unforgettable memories and experiences for all our guests.
