Over the course of 20 years she marketed brands such a Beefeater Gin, Solpadeine and Hedex, Snack-a-Jacks and Huggies nappies; and she successfully created and marketed two of her own businesses; a South West London Garden Design Practice and now an Award-Winning Glamping Business.

Bella offers a one day Glamping course in which she shares her insights & secrets, whilst providing all the essential information you will need to gain planning consents, write a business plan, design your site, write a marketing plan, understand the day to day tasks of running the site, and manage the all important change over day.
