Carol Southall

  • Job title: Course Director
  • Department: Staffordshire Business School

Background

A former Operations and Training Manager in the tourism industry, I am currently studying for a PhD focusing on the relationship between cultural awareness and visitor satisfaction in tourism. I have worked as a Tour Guide and Tour Driver for over 25 years for one of the UK’s leading award winning coach tour operators, accompanying trips to destinations as diverse as Singapore, Australia and Italy. Industry experience also includes seasons as a Resort Representative in France, Switzerland and Yugoslavia as well as a period of hospitality and PR industry employment in Sydney, Australia. Additionally, I have events industry experience, involving planning and managing travel events and roadshows, as well as coordinating UK band tours.

Research interests include Culture, LGBT Tourism and Family Tourism and I have authored a number of chapters and articles in these fields. Research projects include an Environmental Impact Assessment for Lichfield Cathedral, a retail tourism project and article for Which magazine and Smartour (Erasmus+) project for Sustainable Tourism Management. I am also a member of the Senior Advisory Board for Harrington Park Press.
