About

Our other associates

RHP delivers many of its projects with an excellent network of trusted associates.  This gives us the flexibility, strength and breadth of knowledge so you can benefit from the right team for your project.  Our associates include:

 

Anna Pollock

Anna is a researcher, strategist and change catalyst serving the international tourism and hospitality sector.  Always “ahead of her time” she is a visionary, who is passionate about the capacity of tourism and hospitality organisations to generate well-being, wealth and welfare for people and places.  She works at the interface between the people and places to engage hearts and minds in supporting the development of tourism that can be managed with respect for the interdependence and contentedness of all life and in harmony with the laws of nature.

Describing herself as a sense maker, communicator, and catalyst, Anna has a knack and drive to delve beneath surface details in order to discern and describe the shape and power of underlying forces. She is driven by curiosity, delights in finding patterns and asking questions and is comfortable assuming the mantle of “constructive non-conformist.”  As such, she has become one of the leading voices in shaping thinking about over-tourism and is actively working in Flanders on this issue.

 

Victoria Pirie

Victoria works across the arts, heritage and creative industries. She brings an understanding of the creative sector, culture and tourism through her work as joint author of various culture and tourism strategies, including the Dorset Culture and Tourism Action Plan (2015; implemented through RHP’s work in Dorset) and the development of the Wessex Museum Partnership’s culture and tourism plan. Her work on Place Making includes Business Improvement Districts’ engagement with place branding and heritage for Historic England (2016) and at a local level assessing the impact on Boscombe of the Bournemouth Emerging Arts Fringe festival; part funded by the local BID (2018 and continuing).  Intangible cultural heritage as part of place was explored in research for the National Lottery Heritage Fund on the impact of their work in this area (2016). Victoria understands the national operating context for the creative and cultural sector, including skills and economic development from her work at Creative & Cultural Skills, and business resilience and sustainability with research for Arts Council England (ACE) on Museums and Change (2017),  Local Authority Museums and Resilience (2015), and the Economic Impact of Museums (2014).  Currently she is part of team looking at the impact on local museums, communities and places of ACE’s Museum Development Fund (2018-2022).
