We could not ask for anyone better than Guy to be our guest for this first event, where attendees will gain valuable insights about how businesses effectively utilise golf as a vehicle to further their corporate objectives.
“Guy has vast experience around global sponsorship and partnerships in golf through his time heading up the golf division of IMG and more recently with the European Tour and Ryder Cup, so this will be a fantastic way to kickstart our new Business Club and provide new opportunities to create meaningful business relationships through golf.”
Kinnings said: “I am delighted to be part of the inaugural CPG Business Club event. There is no question that golf is the recognised sport of business; from the tremendous networking opportunities that exist simply by playing 18 holes, to the more expansive sponsorship and partnership of major golfing events by blue chip companies across the world. I look forward to discussing all of this and more as part of the session.”
