Partner Review

Steve Christian, Sefton Council

“We were delighted to support the Tourism Growth training programme in Southport – we had worked with Paul before and knew from experience that the initiatives he led were extremely popular with tourism businesses.

Word gets around quickly when an excellent training initiative is available and this is what happened in Southport with the Tourism Growth programme.

We were very pleased to be able to work with Paul to help identify tourism businesses who would, in all likelihood, benefit from the programme the most – this included many in the Southport Tourism Business Network.

The Tourism Growth business support programme gets results – this is the clear feedback we’ve had from the Southport businesses who have taken part.

We’re very happy to support a programme which contributes to improving the overall quality and attractiveness of Southport as a resort and destination.”
