Peter Nizette

Project Manager, Small Business Owner, and Consultant in Scotland, United Kingdom

Hi - I am Peter Nizette, dual Australian & British citizen. an experienced General Manager, Project Manager, Team Leader and Senior Development & Destination Marketing consultant. I have more than 40 years experience in business and public sectors - with, predominantly, a travel and tourism background - planning and managing complex integrated projects and assignments; co-ordinating, motivating and managing teams of specialists in projects.

The ethics of Responsible Tourism ground my specialisation the basis for extension of the principles to integrated livelihood change & poverty reduction. 'Making better places for people to live and better places for people to visit. Preferred projects harness the power of the Tourism Economy and Value Chain in profitable, tourism related, SME businesses in the value-chain, underpinning livelihood change momentum for communities.

I bring very strong grounding and expertise to managing projects and leading teams of specialists towards over-achieving against ToRs. Projects managed vary between $150k & $12 million. My management skills bring high levels of sensitivity to creating linkages to cross-sectoral stakeholders; Policy, Strategic Planning for sustainability of development. I bring a particular skill to projects from the private sector, in working with both public and private sectors, NGOs and Civil society to forge common ground in sensitive and complex situations.

I have applied and honed these skills creating a proven track record of success in development oriented market sectors. See link to Linkedin for details & CV.

These projects have included, for example;

Forest conservation, community integration and commercial business feasibility in EAC and SADC, Ghana, Peru, Slovenia, Papua New Guinea and others around the world,

Leading Master Planning and other destination development & marketing teams with commensurate STE in diverse environments e.g. Bulgaria, Slovenia, Indonesia, Peru, Curacao

Globally - there is a wealth of exposure to different cultures and ways of working providing substantial and in-depth global experience. I have lived in and/or completed specialist advisory in more than 50 countries.

I am very mobile, flexible in approach and very comfortable with all cultures, to achieve results - whether underneath the mango tree or at Ambassadorial, MD, Chairman of the Board and/or Ministerial levels.
