Dr Raveeendran and I were invited to attend a 4 day workshop at Booking.com’s HQ in Amsterdam December 4-7th. We were shortlisted along with another 12 projects and were given the opportunity to be granted by the Booking Cares programme.
Booking put on a great programme of events to introduce us to the other teams and projects, to tell us about the work they are doing and to help us to create our proposal deck ready for our interview with the Booking Cares judges.
We were also asked to input on the programme itself and to give our thoughts on Booking.com’s strategy for sustainable tourism in the future.
A lot was at stake for our project but the atmosphere was relaxed and help was available from our mentor and the Booking Cares team.
