Adrian Lee, CEO, Ravenswood Sanctuary, Perth, AUSTRALIA:

“Your experience, insights and inputs on the development strategy for the leisure and lifestyle elements of Ravenswood Sanctuary continue to be of real value to us and the board has asked me to commission an update on the golf market and positioning strategy from ILC, as we plan to start building the Graham Marsh course in January 1999. You've got four weeks. Can you handle it ? ”

(Ms) Kirti Anand, General Manager, Club Cabana, Bangalore, INDIA:

“It was a fun learning experience working with ILC. Your timely intervention and inputs at the development stage ensured that the Club and public Water Theme Park project was completed in keeping with international standards - the first of its kind in India. Thanks for the time you found to train and help me motivate the staff, set up the systems and even sell some memberships. Your HK back up team did a great job on those Operating Manuals and your Software manual helped us develop functional software, too. ILC should soon takeover Management of more Clubs and Resorts here, to set and herald the international standards we need in India.”

Philip Gay, Director, Harbour Clubs Ltd, London, UNITED KINGDOM:

“I just wanted to express my thanks for the Geneva Club Acquisition Report, which has helped our board enormously in the evaluation of this project. Given the tight time constraints and the breadth of the review requested from ILC, we felt that the level of information you produced, the quality of analysis and presentation of key factors was valuable and most impressive.

We also appreciated that the Report was prepared on time, within budget and that you have been quick to follow up on all supplementary questions, when needed. Thanks again…. for your personal commitment to our assignment. We will be in touch again soon.”

Bruce Jellard, General Manager, Tianma Country Club, Shanghai, CHINA:

“Many thanks for your invaluable input in assisting with the design, planning, supervision and membership launch of our Recreation Club here. We have been overwhelmed with the reaction from members and prospects alike. In particular, your valiant efforts in the pre-opening build-up were most appreciated. It has been a long and sometimes tense journey but we made it. Please pass my best regards to the support team in Hong Kong for all their tireless efforts too.”

Paul Grainger, General Manager, Clearwater Bay Country Club, HONG KONG:

“It has been a professional pleasure to work with the ILC team on the repositioning and reconstruction of our fitness facilities and the introduction of a new spa concept at our country club. We can now boast one of the finest fitness facilities in the territory and a full service spa to go with it. There has been an excellent reaction from the golf, marina and country club member populations and this is seeing its way to the bottom line already. A job well done in the face of much adversity!”

Joe Haughney, Owners Representative, Hong Kong Disneyland, HONG KONG:

Our tender bids are all in now and I am pleased to inform you that we do have enough there to develop the first option that you have developed – the full service spa with treatment rooms upstairs and fitness and locker rooms, swimming pools at ground level. As such we would like to extend your services to cover the additional space, an extended indoor pool, the outdoor pools and the children’s play facilities. You and your team have been a great help unravelling the mystery of the Asian Spa concept – keep up the great work.”

Stanley Chan, Sports and Recreation Manager, Hong Kong Jockey Club, HONG KONG:

Well, our objective from the start was to create a ‘world-class’ fitness facility for our members and we did it! Many thanks for the insight on contemporary issues and facility planning for the modern-day gym. In particular the technology and entertainment available to users is fantastic – a whole new generation right in our club!”

Joe Oxley, General Manager, Pacific Club Kowloon, HONG KONG:

As I retire from Hong Kong, having been at the helm of the Pacific Club Kowloon for almost 14 years, I am proud to share with you that we launched as the premier multi-facility sports, fitness, recreation and social club in Hong Kong back in 1991 – and we are still there at that level today. It has been a pleasure to work with you and your team as we have both developed over the years. Good luck to you.”
