Testimonials from course participants:
Percy Ivan Aguilar, Porta Hotel Antigua, Guatemala: Building up an engaged and empowered team that will work towards sustainability in the long term became a huge challenge since we didn't know how to set up achievable goals and measure the development of our sustainable practices. The Sustainability is a Team Sport Course has helped us to drive our actions in the correct path for long term sustainable practices in our organization. Thank you so much Aurora!
Ayanna Duval, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Monetgo Bay, Jamaica: I enjoyed the course layout and training material. The reading material is practical and can be maximized for bite sized training sessions and brainstorming for ideas. Some ideas from the course are now being reviewed and several are in the installation stages. I believe it’s a good course for employees and supervisors who are Green Team members as it provides them with an international view of sustainable management. The examples are diverse and include hospitality and non-hospitality companies. It was my little escape into a new world of possibilities for sustainability!

The “buy local” movement has been a hot and growing trend in recent years. Not only do local products and ingredients grab the attention of consumers, but it's an important factor in supporting local economies. Institutional buyers (hotels, conference centers, hospitals, etc.) are incentivized to consolidate purchases with vendors who may not represent smaller, niche suppliers found locally, but hospitality businesses can differentiate product and service mix with unique, local offerings, and tell a powerful sustainability story.
This course can help larger businesses leverage the best of 'local' and help entrepreneurs with ideas and strategies for working with B2B customers.
