I’m Siobhán Burke, and at Wordhoard I help people communicate well about subjects that shape the lives of communities.
Tourism Consultancy Services
Wordhoard’s tourism consultancy services have been put to use across Ireland. I focus in particular on supporting the development of grassroots tourism through communities and networks. I also put my research skills to use to support the emergence of new concepts and ideas that can be used to energise tourism activity.
For this work, I draw on my academic research and teaching skills, as well as my experience of working with story-telling in many forms both as an academic and a freelance consultant.
Current clients include Fáilte Ireland, The Sheep’s Head and Bantry Tourism Co-operative, and the West Cork islands, and I help a wide range of agencies, businesses, and individuals who need tourism research services, training, and other supports.
Copywriting & Editing Services
Good copywriting can help you to get your message across to all kinds of audiences. It is really important to people in tourism businesses who have to win over the hearts of potential visitors who haven’t made a connection with them yet!
It is also important for academics who need to help other scholars, aid agencies, and international organisations understand the issues faced by marginalised communities and the solutions that will bring about change. As well as supporting tourism, then, I also provide specialist editing services to academics who work in the fields of conflict research, international relations, and peace studies. I edit books, journals, and other manuscripts with a careful eye on the consistency and power of the arguments being made, as well as on spelling and grammar issues.
