66486| Arena4finance Ltd| HOTS Business Simulation|

What is HOTS?

HOTS stands for Hotel Operations, Tactics and Strategy and is a web-based business management simulation in which participants have the challenge of and responsibility for redeveloping and managing a large hotel over a simulated period of five years.

With the aim of maximising profitability and achieving business success, participants are in competition with each other or the computer and must make strategic decisions in key management areas including finance, sales and marketing, and human resources. In the latest version of HOTS, such decision areas have been extended to include environmental considerations, revenue management and social media strategy.

What is this course about?

arena4finance has teamed up with HOTS to deliver this course, new for 2013, to companies and educational institutions. Using the latest version of HOTS, it is designed to provide participants with first-hand experience of developing and implementing hotel business strategy as well as analysing the cause and effect of the decision making process, all within a financially-safe environment.

Acting as the management team, participants are equipped with extensive market research and previous sales and financial reports. Using this information, participants must:

  • Identify the current problems in the hotel and devise strategies to tackle them
  • Develop and implement a business plan to achieve the targets set for the hotel by your company
  • Set policies and allocate resources on a monthly basis to ensure that the hotel’s targets and goals are met
  • React appropriately to events in the market place.

To maximise the effectiveness of HOTS for individual organisations, the simulation can be modelled on real-life business environments.

66484| British Small Animal Veterinary Association| Should I stick, probe, pinch or cut? How to untangle the triaditis trap|

Speaker: Elise Robertson BVetMed, BS, MACVS(Feline) MRCVS

Venue: Chilworth Manor, Southampton

Fees: BSAVA Member £246.00
Non BSAVA Member £369.00

Working with SAMSoc

Much research exists surrounding the topics of hepatitis, pancreatitis, and inflammatory bowel disease; collectively called 'triaditis'. The big question remains... How can we translate these findings into best clinical practice in our everyday feline cases? This module will introduce current published literature, integrate real-life case studies, and encourage participant discussion surrounding these debatable hot topics. In addition, we will explore the world of feline endoscopy and diagnostic laparoscopy ('keyhole' surgery), and how these minimally invasive procedures can be woven into the diagnostic framework of a suspect feline triaditis case.
