Sales & marketing plan for hotel & golf resort, Ireland

The client

5 star Irish Hotel and Golf Resort.

What did Hotel Solutions Partnership achieve for the client?

The analysis and input provided by Frank Coan and Alastair Stevenson totally refocused my Sales and Marketing team on actions and a logical plan that is effective and results driven for our hotel/resort facilities. Hiring them was one of the best initiatives I undertook last year.
