You can say that again Nigel!  This is an awesome topic and something I am really looking forward to hearing more about from the day’s presenters.  Here is an overview of the day’s program.


Michael Port talks on book yourself solid for clubs and studios

You know only too well how difficult it can be to get your personal trainers to fill their schedules with clients and your group exercise instructors to promote their classes. In this session Michael teaches you how to get every member of your team booking more business. From the six core self-promotion strategies and effective sales conversations, to sales cycle development and more, you’ll take home the tools needed to be a master ‘sales’ trainer.


Nils Vesk talks on Innovation for commercial gain

Rethinking how you run your business operations is a crucial step in maintaining your commercial success. Innovation not only allows you to rethink your day-to-day operations, it also provides practical solutions to your service challenges and offers fresh improvements that can increase the impact and effectiveness of your business. Innovation has become an essential skill in hundreds of industries worldwide, and the business of fitness is no different.


Reece Zondag talks on Key Metrics for fitness business success

These are disruptive times. The market has changed but the key metrics that drive us have remained largely intact. Measuring the effectiveness of member touchpoints, as well as the commercial drivers can be hard work. As a leader in a new era of club business you cannot afford to let tradition hold you back. Reece reveals what some of the industry’s best businesses are measuring to drive success.
