“In the past our Sales & Marketing plan evolved as opposed to being planned. Two days with MPA have given us a new focus and direction whereby all activities are charted, costed and finally measured against performance. We now have a clear business plan for our Sales & Marketing department and decisions are now made on sound information as opposed to guess work.”
Mark Nolan, Managing Director, Dromoland Castle, Ireland.

“As part of a Hotel Solutions Partnership team Frank Coan and Alastair Stevenson changed the way the hotel management team approach and think about sales and marketing, both strategically and tactically. No matter how good you may think your hotel is performing, they will find that extra something to give you an edge in the marketplace.”
