A Taste of Gregg

June 5th, 2015

Many GBN.com readers will have attended a Gregg Patterson presentation. He is a popular speaker at golf industry conferences all over the world. The words ‘dynamic’ and ‘charismatic’ are often used to describe his performances. He is always worth listening to and so today I am pleased to be able to present a short film which will give you a flavour of Gregg’s latest mission.

This time he is calling for guerrilla-like warfare to battle the challenges facing clubs in general and he is also providing a road-map on how to make clubs relevant to the differing needs and priorities of a diverse population. Gregg will be setting the tone at the 2015 Asia Pacific Golf Summit to be held in Singapore on 14-15 October but readers of GBN.com can listen to him here and now. Take note (and enjoy!).
