The Business Improvement Academy is designed to support ambitious and growing tourism businesses that recognise the need to engage with the concept of sustainable continuous
improvement in order to become more productive. It combines tools and techniques to highlight areas where efficiencies can be made along with cultural and behavioural change.

The Academy works with business leaders as well as those who have responsibility for enabling change and wish to secure a higher level of ownership and engagement from their colleagues.
