first_imgThe news will be a shattering blow to the Spurs team as the Kenya international has been a colossal figure in the side during the past 12 months.Wanyama made an immediate impact in North London following his arrival last summer and formed a brilliant partnership alongside Mousa Dembele in the centre of midfield.Mauricio Pochettino will need to find different alternatives in his side, with Eric Dier the natural player to fill his void for the short-term future.Wanyama missed the last Spurs game before the international break against Burnley and will be out of contention at the weekend when they travel to Everton.The combative midfielder could also miss league clashes against Swansea and West Ham this month, while next Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund will come too soon for him.He is a big favourite under manager Pochettino and was expected to play a big part at the start of the season.However, he will now have to watch from the sidelines and try force his way back into the starting line-up when he returns later in September.In other Tottenham team news, their attacker has been sidelined until next year.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Victor Wanyama.

Toni Forrester, CEO Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce, welcomed the initiative and said understanding the Letterkenny town visitor, who they are, and their needs, enables the Chamber to support our clients and ultimately, the visitor to this area.“The students have highlighted significant information in relation to the demographics of the visitors, in addition to the main reasons and purpose of their visits. Collaborations with the institute, from a research perspective, supports local business and we are delighted to have quantitative results that will support local business. We hope that this venture is the start of many future collaborations with the institute.”Some of the key findings from this research project included learning that the age profile of Letterkenny Town Centre visitors is younger, aged between 18-35 and 35-54 years of age.Additionally, the top 3 reasons for visiting the Town Centre were, at the top of the list, for social reasons, followed by for professional services, and thirdly for shopping reasons. Visitors to the area recommended that signage is improved and that more innovative methods of paying for parking could be used in Letterkenny Town Centre. The findings also highlighted that the town centre is used as a base for tourists, with the respondents highlighting that there is a distinct lack of public transport. Additionally retailers commented on importance of managing the retail mix, particularly in the Town Centre.Their marketing research lecturer, Vicky O’Rourke, welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with local industry when designing marketing research projects, “the benefits of this research project are two-fold, after spending time studying marketing research concepts and techniques, students gain invaluable experience in managing and executing a live project, alongside this the findings provide useful insight into key issues for Letterkenny Chamber and local retailers”.Patricia Doherty, Head of Department of business said the collaboration provided their fourth year marketing students with an opportunity to ‘add value’ to the local business community.“Students undertook a research project that provided real purpose and insights into the visitor profile to the area. The information gained from this research project allows retailers to strategically plan and organise their activities to match any issues that may have been highlighted from the study. We plan to build and strengthen this connection in the future.”UNIQUE PROJECT GIVES INSIGHT INTO WHO VISITS LETTERKENNY AND WHY was last modified: May 17th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:chamber of commercedonegalLYITmarketing studentslast_img read more
