Philippa J Kaye

I am an avid adventurer and traveller who found my way somewhere along the way. Six years in the ski industry followed by 22 years in the travel industry in India, has taught me an awful lot, I have been a tour operator, worked for DMC’s, reviewed countless hotels and written more hotel and travel websites than I’d care to count. Turning my passion and knowledge gained into a meaningful career therefore made sense. Consultancy and travel writing are my main focus, though more recently my writing skills have been requested in other areas which is a challenge I enjoy.

I also recently published my first novel, book one in the Escape to India series. I’m currently working on book two, plus a collection of short stories and a unique guide book.

CONTENT WRITER

I love creating unique content, seeking out the stories and sharing the passions of business owners. I work as a content creator, copywriter, copy editor and storyteller, specialising in web content, newsletters, social media, brochures and branded content.

When I can, I also enjoy writing for various publications and my articles have appeared in the Times of India newspaper, Mint newspaper, Yorkshire Business Woman and Yorkshire Kitchen. I have also written extensively about India which you can find at www.memsahibininindia.com

AUTHOR

My book, Escape to India, is a novel based on a true story about life living in the jungles of central India, running a safari lodge in Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh. Think Bridget Jones does India! Globally it is available on Amazon.  In India you can find it on Notion Press

PHOTOGRAPHER

India is a photographers paradise, every moment, every turn provides some sort of photographic opportunity. I was fortunate enough to hold an exhibition with a few of these images last year, Yatra.

Now that I am living back in Yorkshire, for the first time in 30 years, I am discovering a similar perspective. It is a spectacular county that just lends itself to be photographed.

Not every photograph can be award winning, but one hopes that some are special enough to be featured on websites and on social media. If you require any images, whether as framed pictures, for a website or would like a bundle for social media, contact me on: [email protected]

TRAVEL EXPERT & CONSULTANT

As a consultant to the travel industry, I work with tour operators, destination management companies, hotels, and independent experience providers. I provide destination and sales training, formulate products, curate experiences, and craft sustainable, boutique travel solutions. I also help businesses determine their client demographic, and compose content to bring their message to the market.

I’m enthusiastic about product development, branding and design. I have a zest for seeing beyond the norm and championing the underdog. I believe the real experiences lie with people — with focus on “P” for passion and people, and not just profit. Niche companies and sustainability are my forte.

Over my 28-year career, I have become one of the foremost authorities in travel around India and Nepal. Prior to setting up Indian Experiences, I was responsible for product development, content writing, and sales and marketing at Amperstand Travel. I have devised products and experiences, as well as written websites, for Real Holidays, Experience Travel Group, Selective Asia, Bespoke India Travel and Rajbari Bawali. I have also written for Ratan Vilas, Mandawa Haveli and Curtain Call Adventures, to name a few.  In India, I helped Le Passage to India set up their luxury travel brand Luxe India. I also consulted for Lebua Hotels, Creative Travel, Destinations Unlimited, and Beyond the Taj.  Adventure, rural and sustainable travel is the path my career is now taking, and my most recent project was assisting in the development of a community homestay project in Nepal.
