This course is aimed at those managers who wish to learn how to enhance their management style and tap into their leadership potential in order to operate the club as a business.

Delegates will understand the responsibilities and characteristics required to exert the appropriate levels of power and influence so that their club can develop its creativity while focusing its strategic aims in line with its established culture and traditions.
