From past participants

  • We participated in the program found! because we wanted to receive hands-on, expert knowledge. It was especially useful to get feedback on three concrete fields that I wanted to develop within SHADES TOURS which were to create a marketing strategy, an action plan for our new tours, and a financial model.
