One such event was held in partnership with the South Florida PGA. Geoff Lofstead, SFPGA Executive Director, noted:

"Mike O’Donnell, Senior Director of Player Development, provided South Florida PGA members with a great look at consumer behavior and patterns and how that can be influenced to help grow the game. More importantly, members came away with a better understanding of how to quantify their player development efforts so they can communicate their true value to the facility."

Other anonymous feedback from attending PGA Professionals included:

“Extremely valuable.  Presentation was well done and clear about the subject matter.  Brought about many new ideas to make me a more valuable asset to my club and myself.”

“This workshop provided me with some excellent ideas to assist in development of players.”

"Excellent presentation that provided a new perspective on attracting customers”

“I enjoyed this presentation and it helped open my eyes to new possibilities and encouraged me to be more thoughtful”

Each workshop is held in conjunction with Section leadership and staff and be eligible for the applicable number of PGA Required MSRs.
