Presentation description

The following topics can be delivered as keynotes and workshops.

Build Your Competitive Advantage
Developing internal strengths makes external challenges irrelevant
Small business and professional golf are both competitive arenas where outside factors can influence results. Managing these circumstances more effectively leads to a higher level of performance, increased consistency and resilience. Build a game plan that ensures you’re always in contention.

Recognize and Deploy Your Assets
How businesses can do more using what they already have
With so many marketing tactics out there, it can be overwhelming to know what to do. Most businesses don't more ideas, they need better ways to use what they have already spent time and money developing. Using the assets you already have, make better decisions and seize greater opportunities.

The Status Quo vs. Your Potential
Evaluating the two sides of risk
The status quo is a powerful place. It’s comfortable, it’s predictable, and it can determine the future of your business. This is a personal account of risking the status quo for something that may never happen, and the unforeseen outcomes from that decision. You’ll never look at your business the same way again.
