‘What started in 1976 as a simple travel agency’ Helen Chappell writing for the Guardian Newspaper once quoted, ‘the Anna Burland Company has now embraced the enterprise culture in all of its bizarre forms’; she wrote further ‘some will try anything to pump colour into their everyday lives and it is quite surprising how you can change a client’s Personality by introducing fantasy into their programmes and events’.

Now in its 39th year, Anna Burland Services ‘hallmark’ continues to be
‘Creating the Incentive’.

In 2003, David Burland, founder of the company, together with Michel François, French Bilingual Poet and Writer, recently arrived from the USA, they initiated a number of literary projects to invite Poets and Writers worldwide to seek adventure on their literary trail.
The mind plays tricks on one’s sanity diverting the ability to sometimes rationalize. We are ourselves but a collection of experiences and, through literature, the Arts and our passion for creativity, we can ‘dream the dream’
Michel François
