Tourism, that has been the life of Alain St.Ange, remains the people’s industry
he works at with passion and with his heart. He worked in hotels in Seychelles,
the Channel Islands and in Australia. He is a known and respected tourism
personality and is often called on to address tourism or air transport on the
international circuit because of his in-depth knowledge of the subject matter
and his ability to speak ‘off the cuff or from the heart‘; as he prefers saying.

St.Ange has just completed a 8-Series lecture tour on a luxury floating
residence which saw him disembark in Seychelles after virtually 30 days
cruising the coast of Southern & Eastern Africa.
