Directions:

This will be a short 2-3 page proposal. I will send this to the client Darden Restaurants chain “Olive Garden” (Orlando based) and instruction on introducing/benefits of their NEW Virtual Train Ride through the Mediterranean.

600 various Olive Garden Stores will require staff to go through extensive training, specifically organizational change and how this virtual reality train ride will benefit consumers and patrons alike, as the primary topic/selling point.
