Chantal Neault

Armed with my B.A. in Tourism Management and Development, I have been working my way through the tourism industry for over 20 years as a planner, coordinator and researcher. I have been with the amazing Tourism Intelligence Network team since the Network’s launch in April 2004.

The Network is an excellent place to be for curious explorers such as myself. I am particularly interested in major industry trends and issues, the various tourism clienteles and how to reach them, human resources and management. I enjoy gathering, analyzing and assembling information to make it easy to understand. My motto: “Whatever is well conceived is clearly said/ And the words to say it flow with ease.” – Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux
