Delivering success to clients…

“I am very excited by this document. Linda and Jayne have gone above and beyond
expectations. They have provided a far more detailed and region-wide report than what was in the scope, and in doing so have painted a very ambitious and exciting vision for visitor servicing across the Red Centre. This document will provide a great lobbying platform to expand and increase our visitor servicing across the region and service the customer in the best way
possible.

It was a pleasure to work with Jayne as she developed the Queensland Edutourism and Study Tours Opportunity Guide and Toolkit documents in 2019. As always, Jayne took on this project with vigour and enthusiasm, ensuring all details of the brief were thoroughly met. Her ability to concisely summarise strategic directions was well appreciated especially as she took on board multiple views from stakeholders in the development of the Guide. Further to this project, Jayne was able to develop a workshop program for us to deliver the content of the project in an interactive, informative and valuable way.

Tourism and Events Queensland

We recently engaged Jayne Jennings of JJ Strategic Consulting to assist us with preparing our awards submission for the 2019 Queensland Tourism Awards and would happily recommend her services.
She was easy to deal with, was able to gain a quick understanding of our business and of our requirements and was able to successfully work under pressure within a very tight timeframe. Her expertise and advice in writing and specifically awards submissions certainly proved to be an asset for Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, with our business taking out the third place Bronze awards for both the ‘Major Tourist Attraction’ and ‘Cultural Tourism’ categories – an amazing achievement in a very competitive market.

Thank you Jayne for your support and services!
