Breakfast Club Gets Wells Fargo Golf Championship Preview

Gary Sobba, tournament Director for the Wells Fargo Golf Championship

Hood Hargett enjoyed hearing from Gary Sobba, tournament director for the Wells Fargo Championship, about this year’s event (May 3-6, 2018 at Quail Hollow Country Club). Sobba spoke at length about this year’s goal of increasing entertainment value at the Championship. This year’s schedule of events includes a concert with Martina McBride and SOL Fusion on May 2 at Phillips Place, as well as a Cinco de Mayo concert featuring Blue Dogs at Quail on May 5, which will include a break so attendees can watch The Kentucky Derby on big screens. This year’s tournament includes a massive youth clinic with five pros; a variety of celebrities at the Pro-Am, including Luke Kuechly caddying for Greg Olsen; and arguably the best player field in memory.

Sobba shared the new PGA Tour branding, “Live Under Par.” For the first time this year at the Wells Fargo Championship, attendees will be able to take pictures and video with their cell phones during the tournament, with the only requirement being that the phones are kept on silent. Also new this year – expanded concessions, and Uber will pick up and drop off across the street from the entrance.

Jason Young Inspires the Hood Hargett Breakfast Club

On Friday April 13th, 2018 Jason Young - expert on workplace performance and customer satisfaction, brought his high energy presentation to Carmel Country Club in Charlotte, NC.

Jason shared  his years of observations and experience with companies such as Southwest Airlines, Walt Disney, 3M, Cisco Systems and others, that have developed unique, high performance cultures and have experienced Culturetopia.

What drives high performance for any company, organization, or team? How do successful companies create high fulfillment and high engagement within the employee workforce where people can do their best work? The key to real success for any workplace lies at the very heart and soul of the organization – it’s culture. When business leaders understand how to measure, define and drive company culture and take action to integrate the values and behaviors consistent with an environment of care and accountability, they will witness an emerging, motivated workforce characterized by optimism, productivity, fulfillment and innovation — high performance and high fulfillment.

Because of the large demand, Jason was kind enough to offer his presentation for download. Click to download the PowerPoint or PDF version of Jason's presentation below!
