About us…

About us…

Founded by the late Dr Rebecca Hawkins, RHP is an Oxford based consultancy businessĀ  passionate about the capacity of tourism to be a positive agent of change.

We believe that creating positive conditions for economic growth, sustaining the natural environment, nurturing cultural industries and generating pride in place are not mutually exclusive and instead come together to make our world better for everyone.

RHP offer exceptional expertise in all aspects of tourism and visitor economy management, bringing together carefully crafted teams with specific specialisms in the areas of sustainability, CSR, culture, destination management and placemaking.

With experience of working globally and locally, we prioritise finding workable solutions that will deliver the outcomes for our clients and communities with whom we work.
