Heritage interpretation training

People enjoy my training events. They leave with new skills, enthusiasm and confidence.

Extremely practical… and inspirational! Thanks!

I aim to help people understand what they can achieve through heritage interpretation, as well as how to make it effective. I have run events ranging from a half-day to two weeks, and taught on university courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Internationally, I have run workshops in countries from Norway to Australia.

I developed the UK’s first ever course on writing interpretation in 1993. Since then, I’ve run many popular events and workshops about writing for museums, national parks, community groups and tourist attractions.

Not only helped me develop a positive and creative approach … but revolutionised my view of what exhibition texts are trying to achieve.
