Trudi Pearce is LiNGER’s Director of Marketing, PR and Responsible Tourism, and the Founder of Responsible Tourism Consulting. Trudi is tenacious, driven, believes in integrity and the ability for every business to make a profit with principles by adopting best practice. Trudi is also an active lobbyer to ensure sustainability becomes part of everyday business as usual.
Travel, Tourism and hospitality have been at the heart of Trudi’s everyday working life for over 23 years, taking on marketing, business development and product development roles. In 2010 Trudi joined Responsible Travel, a leading online travel agency based in Brighton who screen all their suppliers against a criteria for responsible tourism. Since then she has obtained a MSc in Responsible Tourism Management, became a certified coach from the Coaching Training Institute in London, and worked for a successful Travel Marketing and PR agency as a Partner.
Here, Trudi grew the agency’s tourism marketing and representation department and built and launched their first ever responsible tourism division.
Trudi was inspired and compelled to help LiNGER deliver a unique and meaningful vision to embrace ‘slow travel’, and the benefits and transformative experiences it brings to travellers and its suppliers.
One thing you don’t know about Trudi…. she is a trained chef, obsessed with buying and cooking locally sourced and organic food and her signature dish is Asian Crispy Chicken Wings with Sriracha and toasted sesame seeds.
Trudi is thrilled to be a member of the LiNGER team. Primarily because it chimes with her values and purpose to inspire and support the travel industry, but equally for travellers as they enjoy trips at a slower pace, immerse themselves in the extraordinary experience, and benefit the destinations they visit on a local level.
