Word of welcome by Christina Bergman, owner of the Emerald Forest Hotel.

"I would kindly like to welcome you all to this simulation, which is much more then just 'a game'! My name is Christina Bergman: my family and I used to run the Emerald Forest Hotel, a nice and cozy hotel with 100 rooms. In fact, we still own 50% of the hotel, but we are in urgent need of new management insights! This platform and several social media sites will support you as the new management team with over 1,883 pages in running my hotel. So, don't get killed by information and stay focused. You, as well as a number of other management teams, have the unique opportunity to show you can do better than we did in recent years. All your private financial and marketing information will not visible to other teams. I will surely keep an eye on you, through social media, the coaches etc. for I am still an active member of the Board of Directors. I wish you all lots of success in achieving profit and in your creativity!".
