2013 Confederation of Professional Golf Heads of Training Summit Speaker Lineup Announced2 min read


Posted on: 28th Feb 2013

The speaker lineup for the 2013 Heads of Training Summit, taking place from 20-22 March 2013 at Chervò Golf Hotel Spa & Resort San Vigilio, Italy, has been announced and will guarantee to be one of the most useful and inspiring meetings of the year.

The Summit is targeted at the Heads of Training, or nominated individuals, working within a PGA Training Programme on the delivery of education and training programmes, and will give those involved an opportunity to share best practice and learn from each others’ own experiences across a wide variety of subject matter.

The summit’s main programme begins on the 21st March, but delegates are encouraged to attend the Wednesday sessions, which include practical coaching sessions and a game of golf. Thursday’s sessions will look at the pulling together of education from multiple sources with PGA of Canada Technical Director, Glenn Cundari; Initial Professional Education with Director of Education & Membership, Tony Bennett; Health and Wellbeing with Dr Julian Dugmore; and education recognition and evaluation with the PGA of Sweden’s Vice Managing Director and Director of Education, Johan Hampf.

The final day of sessions will include a look at the development of the game in Europe with European Golf Club Owners Association Director, Lodewijk Klootwijk; as well as an explanation of the outcomes to the pan-European Golf Stand Project with Tony Bennett; culminating with a discussion around ‘post-compulsory education’ with the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s Director of Education & Career Development, Dr. Kyle Phillpots.

Director of Education & Membership for The Confederation of Professional Golf, Tony Bennett said “Bringing together the Heads of Training allows us to better appreciate the challenges that our Member countries face while at the same time sharing good practices, offering solutions and facilitating meaningful discussions that have a long term effect on the future of the PGA golf professionals”.

The Heads of Training Summit follows on from the Coaches Circle (18-20 March), which will focus on the latest issues and discussion points that exist within the world of coaching, and has limited spaces available for national coaches, coaches of elite players (on a level 1,2 or 3 tour), and coaches involved in national junior programmes.

Both events will be set in the beautiful surroundings of the Chervò Golf Hotel Spa & Resort San Vigilio in Pozzolengo, in the splendid setting of Lake Garda, which is immersed in the green morainic hills (More information here: http://bit.ly/TKX5ZN).

Places at the Heads of Training Summit are limited so for more information or to register, contact Tony Bennett – tb@CPG.com.
