Each course has been excellent – and completely focused on helping us improve sales and profits.

The course I attended last week was great, really engaging and informative. I particularly liked the way the trainer used real, live, on-screen examples from the businesses present – and geared the day to meet each delegate’s specific needs.

I’d recommend Tourism Growth’s training courses to other tourism and hospitality businesses without hesitation.”

Lucas Van Rensburg

“The ‘Selling More Meetings, Conferences and Events’ course I attended was excellent.

The content of the course was highly relevant to me, and to our business here at Hatton Court. Everything I learned could be applied to what we do.

This course will certainly help me to be more proactive in my role.”

Sally Graff, on behalf of Cotswolds Tourism Partnership, said:

CotswoldsTourism - Sally Graff“The training courses Tourism Growth has run in partnership with Cotswolds Tourism over the past seven years have been extremely popular with members and with all the tourism businesses who’ve attended.

I’ve seen first-hand just how good the Tourism Growth trainers are. They put a huge amount of effort into making the sessions personal to all the delegates and ensuring that everyone benefits. The courses are practical, relevant and focused on helping tourism business owners and managers improve quality and sales – and on making their operations more profitable.

I would definitely recommend that members take the opportunity to register on the upcoming courses.”
