On April 30th, many of the top leaders in the industry gathered for the beginning of the annual Club Solutions Leadership Summit at The Kentucky Derby. A true meeting of the minds, the event was a great mix of business and pleasure featuring roundtables, networking opportunities and of course, mint juleps and horses.
The Club Solutions Leadership Summit is really a one-of-a-kind event. In addition to being fun, the main goal is to provide an opportunity for leaders in the industry to network, problem-solve and share ideas — and that they did. During the roundtables, a number of important issues were discussed, including differentiating your business, reducing attrition amongst two specific segments of your demographic, and increasing employee engagement.
And that’s just what was on the books to discuss. Off the books, during the Welcome Party and time at the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby, leaders discussed a number of important items such as still-occurring recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy, the benefits of using a UV system for pool maintenance, and how to handle a fee hike among family memberships.
Throughout the rest of this year Club Solutions will expand on many of these ideas to bring applicable solutions to you, our readers. Keep an eye out for articles on the ideas discussed above and more.
We’re able to do this because the leaders that attended the Summit are more than willing to share their successes and best business practices with others in the industry, despite some of them even being direct competitors. I can’t express how great that is. In fact, I believe it’s a testament to how great our industry really is, because at the end of the day, most of us aren’t in this industry for just the money. Instead, we’re in it to help individuals become healthier.
We can do this together or separately, and fortunately, most choose to do so together. For that, Club Solutions is grateful. Without leaders that are willing to share their wealth of information, our company and our Leadership Summit wouldn’t be possible. So thanks to not only the attendees of the Summit who are willing to share their ideas, but to every person that’s given Club Solutions an interview over the years.
It’s an exciting time to be in the industry right now, and we’re thrilled to help share its stories.
