Project - Rebranding of a Sustainable Business - The Best Hotel in Europe

We are students in the Hotel and Restaurant Management Program at College Lafleche. Throughout our course "Business English 2" we have completed 3 professional workshops wherein we evaluated real businesses and then came up with real suggestions and solutions which we might offer them if they were our clients.

For this 4th workshop, our task was to evaluate the Best Hotel in Europe, which is a not-for-profit sanctuary for refugees which operates in Greece. This refuge is situated in an old hotel which had been abandoned, and we were excited to work on this project because They are doing great work for the international community, but with the right partners, they could do even more!

Our task was to research the company and produce the following documents:

Documents:
1. A rebranding package: logo, mission statement, slogan(s) and anything else that you may think useful.
2. A list of potential parent companies and a brief description of why they may be interested, and in which capacity they may be interested (buy/sponsor/partner). This part must be as realistic as possible and include real statistics and facts.
3. A SWOT analysis for 1 of those potential partners
4. A slideshow that presents the basic concept, key details, and major advantages which will incentivize the parent company to buy/sponsor/partner with your charitable client.
5. A second slideshow which illustrates the improvements, upgrades, technology, new concepts, new product offerings that the investor can make possible.

Here is our work so far:

Project - Sustainable tour of Central America

Here is the first step which I have taken towards the creation of a sustainable tour of Central America. This is an informative pamphlet which would be given to prospective tourists (before their trip) so that they can be better informed of sustainable practices. My next step will be to publish the full 7-day itinerary of the tour that I am creating, along with the full pre-trip briefing that the travelers will receive before embarking.
