CMAE return to Prague with MDP 3 Strategy & Leadership

The Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) returned to Prague to host their Management Development Programme part 3 course on Strategy & Leadership.

A group of delegates attended from an international background covering England, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, UAE, Thailand and Italy.

The delegates benefited from a programme that focused specifically on raising their leadership competencies whilst delving deeper into topics such as advanced financial management, personal development, club ethics and marketing demographics. The delegates also had their Lumina leadership profiles analysed to help them become better and more aware leaders.

David Tilbury, General Manager at Pannal Golf Club, who was a delegate on the course commened “MDP3 in Prague was probably the most informative and interactive MDP yet.

I have taken a huge amount away from this course and can see how each of the subjects can be incorporated in to not only improving the way our club operates but how I can become an effective leader within the team. I thoroughly enjoyed my time listening to others in the room and how their clubs operate and look forward to continuing to network with them in the future.”

Also commenting was Royal Cinque Ports Assistant Secretary Charles Molony who said “MDP Strategy & Leadership in Prague was a superb week. These weeks, apart from the great education and networking opportunities, simply challenge your mindset and thinking. The Lumina Leader session was a particular highlight and one that has given me much to think about both now and in the future as I develop in the industry.”

Commenting was CMAE Director of Education Torbjorn Johansson. “Our MDP 3 was a fantastic week with an intimate group of delegates which allowed for lots of interaction and discussions. The MDP 3 course will see club managers return to their committees with a far greater insight in to the crucial skills and techniques required to succeed”.
