I noticed that the team had well prepared slides, so there was lack of engagement for the first team to present (usually the one to remember) as a result.
My feedback to the team
My suggestions would be not to read from the notes as much if possible, speak slower, putting emphasis on keywords. Their video portrayed the Snowdonia national park as an adventure haven, with mountain biking (damn near the best place in the world to do it, as there are so many excellent trails.) Consideration for demographic is good and the main team to tackle the concept of a multi package holiday.
They pointed out that there was lack of transportation links between all these sites in Snowdonia, exclaiming to “Create North Wales as an experience, rather than a series of attractions.” This got me thinking throughout the other team’s contributions to see if they had done the same idea, and this was a trend many had followed. An application was many team’s solutions to connectivity, but with experience from Elope, this would prove costly, and may not work so I encourage the team to pursue the transportation idea.
Panel feedback was as given to Trex, as was most groups received feedback bar a far; “What product are you trying to deliver?” more specifity needed as the problem solution being proposed, clarity was not the issue yet. What is the experience you are offering? From my experience in ELOP I was excited as the scope for exploration was large, but was overwhelming one member of the team, Corey. This was surprising many more teams have not questioned the process, it shows he wanted to achieve well, but the competition element was his main focused.
Each team was told to focus down on what is experienced and how it adds value in unique ways.
For Treks I proposed a shuttle bus adventure tour of the area, which could include rib ride and zip world as a package weekend getaway. One member of the team Corey was in objection as he wanted to make sure that we deliver a physical product, but I assured him that this service is a product which would mutually benefit both potential investors. Overall the team have a clearer idea of what is to be delivered over the coming weeks.
