From June to October, the Lac du Bonnet CDC Economic Development Officer was paired with Jordana of Hidden Valley Haven (selected by Eastman Tourism as the Experience Partner) and Patti (another coach in training) for a hands-on learning experience.
This hands-on learning approach had coaches Cyndie and Patti working directly with Jordana to develop an immersive experience for guests and create another source of income for the business.
Starting with the tools and resources available to Hidden Valley Haven and incorporating Jordana’s Life Coaching Certifications, the team worked to create “Down N’ Dirty – It’s a Family Thing!” Learning to craft this experience, the team took traditional workshops, riding lessons, and trail walks to new levels and even incorporated some trash can cooking! We also worked together to create the Market Ready materials for the experience, including photography, graphics, video, and more.
About the Experience that was Developed
Participation in this fun family experience may bring joy, laughter and a feeling of closeness and wonder. You may also get a little dirty while doing it! If these are things you are willing to experience together, then let’s continue and get your family booked! Are you ready to experience some wholesome family fun down on the farm? Breath in the fresh air as you enjoy the perfect setting to unplug, spend time outdoors, explore the river bank, participate in activities, cuddle with the animals, get your hands in the dirt, and prepare a meal together in a way that will have your family talking about it for years to come. We invite you to experience for yourselves what Hidden Valley Haven has to offer. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings with Down N’ Dirty fun!
Cyndie was such a pleasure to work with. She takes the time to get to know you, your story, your values and what inspires you to do what you do. Cyndie goes above and beyond. She was there to answer questions, ask the right questions, crunch the numbers and be a support and cheerleader. She really helped me bring my idea for an experiential tourism experience to a place of marketability and scalability. Something that every business needs to be successful.
My 5 months of training and coaching with Cyndie were such a blessing, and I know I am farther ahead and more prepared to welcome our first experience guests in 2022 because of her help, expertise and guidance. I highly recommend having Cyndie on your creative team!
