Topic: The Business of Instruction: Providing efficient coaching and better service to students
How can teachers and coaches become more efficient and earn more while respecting our players and not overselling them? Baufeld will look at tactics and ideas to help frame conversations to build trust and the understanding of what it will take for a player to achieve their goals, and key in on player management after programs have been completed. Our ability to do more with what we have will be a focus of discussion.

Topic: Cannabis at your Course: Developing a golf-facility marijuana policy
With legalized cannabis on the horizon in 2017, Prof. David Cram began teaching one of Canada's first courses analyzing the marijuana industry through the Okanagan College School of Business, focusing the emerging economic impacts of legalization, including effects on auxiliary industries. Now that legalization has taken effect, golf facilities need to consider a variety of factors in determining a policy on patrons consuming cannabis on site. Cram will examine these key considerations to help facilities develop an approach to marijuana that suits each location's needs.
