The owner of My Tour Talk is in awe of the creative talent in the province, and is inspired to develop new business relationships with them

When I began my career in a small but rapidly emerging mobile telecommunication business in 1989, my inspiration was the need to develop new and exciting business relationships to help the company grow, and it is this desire which continues to motivate me on a daily basis.

In my current company, My Tour Talk, whether I am sourcing a new supplier to join our existing project team, or developing a new product for a visitor-focused organisation, I am constantly inspired by the breadth of talent and enterprise in Northern Ireland.

The province is packed with talented illustrators, composers, creative writers and technology developers — and it is this blend of local talent that allows our business to deliver new and exciting projects across all of Northern Ireland and further afield.

The year 2012 is a very exciting time to be working in the tourism industry in Northern Ireland and due to the growing global demand for digital visitor information on iPhone and Android apps the opportunities are almost limitless.

Being able to blend world class technology with the ability to create strong working relationships with suppliers, customers and sponsors is something which will undoubtedly help our business grow to new heights this year.

For example My Tour Talk is in the final stages of launching a Titanic Belfast audio walking tour app on iPhone and Android, supported by the Arts Council in Northern Ireland.

Coinciding with the Centenary celebrations these apps will guide visitors across the River Lagan out to Titanic Quarter where they will hear the real story of Titanic from a member of the Andrews family — Johnny Andrews, Great nephew of Thomas Andrews the designer of RMS Titanic.
