Who we are

I am Adriaan Kauffmann, a hardworking and ambitious professional with experience and interest in research, monitoring and evaluation in international development and sustainable tourism. I want to contribute to successful international development cooperation and sustainable tourism development through research, networking and a positive-critical attitude in every project and assignment. I have an MSc in sustainable tourism (Wageningen University) and in international development studies (Radboud University Nijmegen) and I have research and working experience in Chile (2005), Angola (2006 & 2007), Ethiopia (2007), Gambia (2008), Malawi (2013), Brazil (2014), Cambodia (2015), UK (2015), Cyprus (2015), Kenya (2015), Zambia (2013, 2014 & 2016), Germany (2016), Switzerland (2016), Thailand (2016), Myanmar (2016) and Uganda (2015 & 2017)

I am John Hummel, an associate consultant to Bureau Wyser. I have been working in pro-poor and sustainable development of tourism, as an adviser, researcher, and as a professional in the tourism industry, for more than 20 years, worldwide. I advised national and local tourism organisations on pro-poor tourism value chain development, public private partnerships, participatory approaches in tourism planning and development, and strategy/policy development in pro-poor and sustainable tourism. I also worked closely together with private sector and international and national NGOs.

Maarten Kuijpers has worked for Bureau Wyser (formerly PI Wijzer) from 2010 to 2015. So, the track record of Bureau Wyser, the positive reviews of clients and the services offered on this website are also realised because of Maarten Kuijpers' efforts. He now works for AMREF The Netherlands as PME Manager. Bureau Wyser and Maarten Kuijpers will continue to work together on one of our shared and special interests: Vanilla from Papua New Guinea.


What do our clients say?

"For over 6 years I work with Maarten and Adriaan with much pleasure. During various projects we have strenghtened each other again and again. Maarten always thoughtfully constructive towards a clear and clarifying overview. Adriaan ambitious and always in for out-of-the-box; as long as it is no nonsense! In short, two men who you can rely on and who won't disappoint you in whatsoever!""
