              Observations : Shell & UNESCO
•   Impressed with efficient and dedicated management BMCA by UWA and
    knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff
•   Need to use UNESCO World Heritage property branding more actively in
    signage and promotional materials
•   Use UNESCO co-ordination, funding, promotional and educational
    materials more actively
•   Consider early impact of ‘Virunga Massif’ WH designation (expected July
    2007) on business and develop strategy
•   Be proactive in using ‘free’ promotional opportunities e.g. Queen’s visit,
    photographic and filming materials, embassy exhibitions
•   Use feedback from visitors, tour operators and guidebooks to understand
    your potential market, their perception of you and to develop new
    products
•   Look for places where tools & ideas in Business Toolkit can be put to
    immediate use => Business Plan Thinking
