Case Study for Heald College

Heald College was founded in 1863 by Edward Payson Heald as the first business college in the western United States. Since then, Heald has continued to prepare students for careers in healthcare, business, legal, information technology and other growing fields, primarily through associate degree programs. In 2007—after several years of poor performance—Heald College embarked on an aggressive program of expansion and revitalization led by its then newly appointed CEO, Nolan Miura.

Challenge: As the economy weakened in 2007 and 2008, the Heald College management team foresaw strong growth potential in the career-focused associate degrees that made up its core offerings. During a recession, enrollment in these programs rises, as people seek an upgrade in their job skills. To address these opportunities, Heald required expertise in areas such as healthcare education and how to build a presence in online degree programs. Click further on Heald College

Case Study of Broken River Mountain Resort

Broken River Mountain Resort is an eco-resort offering accommodation and organised tours with activities such as 4WD excursions and bird watching walks. Operating since 1984, its secluded location in the mountains of Eungella National Park has provided some natural challenges for the resort which could only be solved with alternative and eco friendly initiatives. Current owners Chris Ayre and Denis Murray took over the roken River Mountain Resort from its original owners in 2003 and with this, they also acquired the challenge of operating a resort that is neither connected to the local water system nor to the local sewerage.

A Case Study on Tapsilog

Tapsilog is a popular Filipino dish commonly served for breakfast. The term is coined from combining the Filipino words tapa, sinangag, and itlog which are the main components of the dish. We chose to show how tapsilog can be geographical because we want to emphasize that anything can be geographical, and tapsilog, a common Filipino dish is usually not the kind of product that people would associate with geography. As mentioned, tapsilog is made up of tapa (dried meat), sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (egg), but it doesn’t stop there. Each ingredient is also made up of even more ingredients that we have traced to have originated from and traveled through different places in and out of the country before it reaches our plates. This further supports the idea that tapsilog, like every product, is geographical. Click here to read more…

Case Study for Broadwater Haven

Broadwater Haven was established with environmental and long term financial sustainability in mind. From its beginnings the six cabins at the site were powered using 36 solar panels to promote a shift away from grid power and to capitalise on expected increases in electricity costs and 12 inter-connected rainwater tanks were installed to supply water to the cabins and laundry. In 2010 Broadwater Haven owners Frank and Noela participated in the Sustainable Regions Program conducted by Tourism Queensland recognising it as an opportunity to engage with other local operators, share ideas and explore what more they could achieve on their sustainability journey.
