After the great success of our "First European Elephant Management School" (www.elephant-management.com
) which runs since nine years, we have been regularly asked by several executives out of the zoo business to offer a comprehensive course on the topics of elephant management, breeding, conservation and facility design.
Due to this request and the great success of the course last year we will offer the "Executive Elephant Management & Facility Design Course 2011" again.
We managed to get great lecturers who are very experienced and internationally recognized experts in their fields. We are sure that this course will get as interesting and as the Elephant Management School.
The language of the course will be English and it will run over two and a half days.
Some of main topics that will be covered are:
- Feasibility studies
- Strategic development planning and master planning
- Concept development ("Impact of a flagship species")
- Project reviews
- Project development
- Project planning and Project design
- Exhibit design (for the animal, the keeper and of course for the visitor)
- Costs and Controlling
