    Credibility in the eyes of clients, as a result of our professional Declararation of Good Practice. This is particularly useful when bidding for projects where clients require evidence of professional bona fides.

"If you are thinking of joining the Tourism Consultants Network, but don't see the point because you have nothing to learn or gain by talking and sharing expertise with leading experienced colleagues.....  then my advice is, don't join - but consider the possibility that you could be wrong."

“As a self-employed consultant, I've found TCN invaluable over the years as a place to network with and get to know leading tourism experts, as a source of market intelligence and as a way of keeping up with developments in the consultancy field both in the UK and the wider world."
