Message from Mark Taylor – August 2015
It has been a very busy past few weeks, with a whole lot of activity taking place. Firstly, I would like to mention the success of the eLan Gold Cup at Greyville Racecourse. A big ‘thank you’ goes out to all who attended and to those who were involved in the planning and execution of the event.
As some of you may have heard, on the 27th of July 2015, the leading Asian hospitality group, Dusit International entered into an exclusive agreement with eLan Property Group to manage several hotels and resorts in Southern Africa and Indian Ocean region.
Dusit signed agreements on 5 hotels, potentially looking at Franschhoek, 3 hotels at Blythedale Coastal Resort and in Mauritius. I am very excited about this relationship mainly because of their experience in hospitality training. They have close to 20,000 students within Asia currently undergoing training in hospitality.
Just this week, August 19th, Andrew Thompson (eLan Development and Sales director) did a presentation at the “Eyes of Africa: Business Networks 2015” in Bangkok. We are well pleased to hear about the impact Andrew made at the seminar as he represented eLan Property Group.
We are counting down the days to our international launch of Blythedale Coastal Resort on the 28th of October. We encourage you to take this opportunity to register your interest on the Blythedale website, rather sooner than later. Follow this link to register: http://www.blythedale.co.za . Please note we will be introducing a 5% discount to the eLan Investor Club Platinum members.
In just two weeks’ time we launch a very innovative campaign, whereby if you introduce someone who purchases land at Blythedale Coastal Resort, you will then get a further 1% discount per person you introduce. Note that you can receive up to a maximum of 50% off. Sharing this exciting news is as easy as forwarding a message to your contact lists found on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Email, Skype etc. We hope to hear of your interest soon!
Last but certainly not least, August is Organ Donor month! Last week some of the eLan Property Group staff and I decided to make a difference in someone else’s life by becoming an organ donor. If you too would like to make a difference, simply, register here: https://www.odf.org.za/
