Game Changer for Tourism Businesses programme

Applications are invited to join the 5th Game Changer for Tourism Businesses programme. Developed and offered in partnership by VisitAberdeenshire, Opportunity North East and Scottish Enterprise, the programme can help you to identify your target markets, define consumer and market demands and refine your offering to provide the experiences and services that visitors are looking for. The programme is intense, challenging and fun and requires a commitment of your time for the whole programme.

You will leave the programme with a growth plan for your business and a range to business tools and techniques to manage your business. Don’t be put off by the jargon - all will become clear!
