Talents. Passions. Values. Is it possible to combine all three into just one job that will actually pay your rent? Xola Consulting, Inc. founder Christina Heyniger and project consultant Lisa Alley are doing it!
Featured in the May, 2008 Outside magazine "50 Best Jobs" issue, Xola provides consulting services to individual adventure tour company operators, tourism boards, and governments interested in adventure tourism development for the benefit of rural communities and the environment. Xola also specializes in supporting private sector organizations seeking to link adventure tourism and volunteer service travel with ongoing corporate social responsibility initiatives.
The Xola team will lead an In-Depth Call to further share how they created their adventure dream jobs and provide insights on how Net Impact members can do the same. Christina and Lisa have extensive experience in emerging markets around the world including Central and South America, North Africa and Southeast Asia, particularly China, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, India and Nepal. Recently returned from completing a development project in Northeast India, participants will also have the chance to learn about opportunities in the rapidly growing marketplace of adventure travel and how it is driving sustainable economic growth in developing countries.
