Please do take the opportunities to sign up and attend – it’s rare to find training courses of such quality locally.”

The courses have really helped me in my role at Visit Bath – and helped me to support our members better too.

The trainers have been fantastic. Very engaging, with great insight – and superb information and advice.

It’s really encouraging to see how well the Tourism Growth courses have been taken up by our members over the last year. A big thank you to the Bath venues who’ve hosted them!

We’re now looking forward to working with Paul and the team at Tourism Growth as we plan more courses together over the year ahead. If you’re a Visit Bath member, I’d really recommend that you take a look at them and attend.”

It was very well presented – the trainer was great, he explained everything so well. Just the right pace and detail, it was easy to make notes.

This course will certainly help us to convert more leads and improve our repeat business.

We’ll definitely want to attend other Tourism Growth courses in the future – I have no hesitation at all in recommending them to other hotels.”
