Lead, Develop, Desire - Join Us for THE Workshop You Don't Want to Miss!

Join guest presenter and fellow PGA member Ted Eleftheriou, Director of Program Development for the PGA of America and your fellow members as we explore YOUR role as the leader and C.E.O. (Chief Engagement Officer) of YOUR business! Discover how you, as a PGA professional, are uniquely positioned as the key driver to increasing the bottom line at your facility.

Join us for a full day March 14th and a half day on March 15th at Pinehaven CC and discover:

  • The WHY- HOW-WHAT versus the WHAT-HOW-WHY of business.
  • How to impact customer engagement using effective Player Development Strategies.
  • Why we need to focus on “Golfer Experiences” rather than “Golfer Transactions.”
  • Why business as usual just won’t do.
  • Creating a “Lovemark.”

You WON’T want to miss this opportunity! Limited seating, so register today!
