Taster Day at Honister for local businesses

The team at Honister Slate Mine are running a Cumbrian business familiarisation week from 3-9 February 2020 for front of house staff working in hotels and guesthouses.

The idea behind the initiative is to help the front of house staff in local hotels and guesthouses develop their knowledge of the area to enhance their guests stay, by being able to recommend different activities or things to do depending on their guest’s interests.

Up to two staff members from each business will be able to book on to the all-weather experience which will include a Mine Tour, a taster of the Via Ferrata Extreme or a Climb the Mine taster. There will be chance to explore the site with its outdoor sculptures, shop, café and dramatic views. To book your place contact Honister Slate Mine direct by emailing bookings@honister.com

Jan Wilkinson Co-Owner Honister Slate Mine says, ‘We know the front of house team are the most important ambassadors for any business, so that’s why we are inviting representatives from hotels and guesthouses from across Cumbria to come to Honister Slate Mine. If you experience something first-hand you can you can share it authentically with guests, and that passion comes across. It’s also a fun CPD opportunity for hoteliers and guesthouse owners to offer their staff.’
