Kevin Stables, Latin American Dreams
Kevin has completed four Elevate courses including two social media courses, a visual marketing course and an MS Office Skills course.
Whilst many of us only dream about creating a business based on our passion Kevin Stables has turned his dream into a reality. In 2013 Kevin and his Peruvian business partner launched Latin America Dreams a travel company specialising in bespoke holidays in South America. The business draws on Kevin’s tourism background, his experience of living in South America and his enthusiasm for the region.
“I wanted to share my love of South America with others. My business partner is Peruvian and I spent several years in South America as a result we really understand the culture, the landscape, the food and the people. Our aim is to capture the very best of the continent in every trip we organise. We also ensure that that we use local suppliers so that money goes into the local economy.”
During the last year Kevin has completed four Elevate courses including two social media courses, a visual marketing course and an MS Office Skills course.
“The Elevate courses came at just the right time for me. I was setting up my business and it was essential that I had a strong online presence. The courses helped me achieve this and with Elevate’s support I’ve been able to create the website and social media presence that I needed to grow my business” says Kevin.
“I’ve also really benefited from the networking, I’ve learnt a lot from the other businesses owners and professionals that have attended the courses and have really appreciated the constructive feedback from lecturers who have taken a genuine interest in my business” he continues.
Whilst Kevin has now completed the maximum number of Elevate credits he still attends the update events which are organised for social media course participants. The sessions provide information on the latest developments in social media and how businesses can incorporate these into their marketing activities.
