CMAE Seminar in Perth

The following seminar is being held by Club Managers Association of Europe - anyone interested in attending should contact the CMAE directly. If any GTS members are attending we'd be keen to know who in order that we can decide who should attend from the organisation.

Customer Service & Membership Retention

Seminar Overview

The best way to describe this seminar is by plagiarising words from those who have previously heard the presenter. “Inspirational, exciting, fast paced, contentious, irreverent, knowledgeable, proactive, caring, buzzing with ideas and has the knack of instilling industry best practice”.
The aim during the day is to provide delegates with the tools to be a better club manager, to enable them to inspire staff to become ‘world class’ and to provide thoughts and ideas on how to get the ‘buzz’ in your club, additionally, how to make members feel ‘loved and wanted’ and never, ever, contemplate leaving.

What’s in it for you?
  • a top US presenter, with a genuinely Worldwide reputation
  • an unforgettable experience which will inspire and enthuse delegates, and send you away with the “BUZZ”
  • club specific issues and questions dealt with head-on, by an expert
  • an opportunity to network and compare notes with other club managers during the day.

Who is speaking?

Gregg Patterson - has been the General Manager at the Santa Monica Beach Club in California for the last 25 years, an Adjunct Professor at Cal Poly and a visiting lecturer on club management practice in the Far East, Europe and North America. He holds a MPS Degree for Cornell University and a BA in British Imperial History from Colgate University.
