Want to ensure that your club extracts maximum value from two ‘game-changing’ developments in 2018?

Be at the Conference on 6th May to hear how the change to an integrated national database system will benefit you.  Karl from Friendly Manager will demonstrate how even at the standard entry-level, the system will deliver significant administrative benefits to how your club operates.

Frank Sahlein, CEO of 3rd Level Consulting, will also be on-hand to illustrate how the addition of his gymnastic specific business development tool into New Zealand, can benefit your club. Frank will provide insight into how using 3rd Level Consulting’s advice, guidance, templates and resources will transform the way your club views operational requirements and the world of opportunities that are possible as a result.
