The Club Essentials Seminar

30 October 2019

The Club Essentials Seminar

This free Members Only seminar will address 3 vital facets to operating a successful Club; Governance, Operations & Marketing.  We will delve into committee and board best practice and common pitfalls to be aware of.  We will talk operations - from how to correctly determine your cost of goods and staff and how to achieve profit in a highly regulated and challenging industry.  Finally, we will approach your Club’s current online marketing strategies with fresh eyes, from socials to website, to member comms to graphic design - the image you portray of your Club on line can directly impact its success.

Your presenters at this special forum are as follows;
