On today’s episode, we make a call across the pond to Michael Braidwood, Director of Education at the Club Managers Association of Europe. Michael gives us a rundown of the trends and happenings in the private club industry in Europe and the United Kingdom. We discuss the education that is driving the development of club managers in Europe and get a preview of the BMI Conference taking place later this year in London. We also chat about what lesson U.S. club managers might be able to learn from their European counterparts.
Rick Coffey of Clubessential also joins us on the inaugural Inbox segment. Rick and Gabriel discuss the USGA ruling at the U.S. Open, the critical social networks that private clubs should be utilizing and they answer listener’s questions related to private club membership marketing.
