Sean Goggin says studying a travel and tourism course through TAFE Digital empowered him to consider a range of business enhancements, and enabled him to implement a range of marketing policies, plans and initiatives to maintain high standards at his resort.

“The way we market to our guests,” said Sean, “has changed significantly with online campaigns now making up over 60% of our overall budget spend compared to 20% just three years ago.“

Sean also built a more user-friendly website with mobile-device functionality, giving him the confidence to expand the business, with a new events centre set to open soon.
