Foremost’s Spring Workshops were an overwhelming success once again this year, with just under 300 members attending sessions at Foremost member venues across the UK.
Starting at Woodbury Park Golf Club in Exeter, sessions were held at ten venues across the United Kingdom, culminating in the final workshop at Gleneagles Golf Resort, host of the 2014 Ryder Cup.
In conjunction with the PGA & Foresight Sports, the Foremost Golf membership team, headed up by Peter Durham, once again put together an exciting agenda for the company’s annual Spring Workshops.
This year’s subjects included maximising return on investment with an indoor swing studio, conducting a full business health check, providing a level of customer service that cannot be equalled, and how to increase annual retainers.
Attendees have already been reporting a substantial increase in sales as a result of implementing various initiatives and ideas discussed at the educational workshops.
“On returning to North Foreland after the Spring Workshop, we generated over £2,000 in additional coaching revenue in just one day using a Spring Workshop initiative,” said Darren Parris of North Foreland Golf Club.
Similarly, Jack Heginbotham of Wells Golf Club commented, “After the Spring Workshop at Woodbury Park, I put into practice some of the initiatives from the day and I’ve already exceeded £1,500 in additional retail and coaching revenue. Attending the Spring Workshop has already added so much value to my business.”
Following a record turnout at the 2016 Spring Workshops, Foremost will be conducting a further 16 regional workshops throughout the year.
Commenting on the success of this year’s workshops, Foremost’s Head of Membership Services, Peter Durham, said, “Every year we try to come up with an exciting agenda that is entirely relevant to the challenges and issues that our members are facing.
“This has been the best year so far because the business initiatives have been designed to enable members to go back and make an immediate impact on their sales and coaching, while improving operational costs, cash flow, and overall margin.
“I’m excited at the prospect of helping those members that attended achieve a new level in sales, coaching participation, and customer service in 2016,” continued Durham.
