"Working with Dobbin Callahan on the Tennessee Green Hospitality program was an awesome experience. I understand folks shying away because of being intimidated, but I promise it is quite the opposite. The core requirements for the program are quite attainable and many are likely things you are doing anyway. We have found that the Core requirements are also sound business practices."
