  • Description

    Hi, we are Ben and Emma.
    We are an outgoing and friendly couple who decided to ditch our corporate jobs to build our lives around working while we travel the world.
    Emma has over 10 years working in New Zealand corporate business and has spent her whole adult life as a travelphile. A passion for people, E has vast experience in relationship management and knows how to build and maintain connections with customers. She has strengths in business planning, building sales strategies, creating marketing campaigns and understands how to generate new business opportunities.
    After receiving an MBA and working as the Product and Marketing manager for a small internet provider, Ben’s travel passion overtook his need for a steady corporate job. Ben brings a depth of experience in web design and development, process improvement, people and business management.
    We have both travelled before and it is more important to us to meet people and experience the local culture than tick off the 'must-see' sights.
    We are both hard working and we also like to have a lot of fun, great conversation and new experiences - and we can't wait to meet you!
    Our expertise are in Web Development, Digital Marketing, SEO, and all things Customer Experience - we travel with all the technology (laptop computer etc) we need to help you and your business take the next step.
    We travel in part thanks to our online consulting business - for more info on our skills and recent projects please check out our website:
    At May 2019 we are managing a guest house in Sri Lanka until October when we will be going to the Maldives and then onto India from November!

    Let us help you to take your business to the next level - we are consultants that care.
