WHAT WE DO

MANAGEMENT & GOVERNANCE CONSULTING

Lance Bickford is the CEO who help business owners and CEOs achieve big hairy audacious goals. I do this by encouraging my clients to be the wolf, not the deer, to aim high and to look for opportunity (found hiding behind disruption and barriers). I help them stay focussed, deliberate and nimble.

TOURISM & HOTEL CONSULTING

Lance (based in Auckland, New Zealand), and Gray Smithe (based in Da Nang) are tourism and hotel expert management and marketing consultants. We specialise in providing expert advise on hotel pre-openings, destination marketing and hotel feasibility studies.
