What does 1st Tee Director’s Club do for me?
"This is a big question because the 1st Tee Director’s Club has so many facets and it’s strengths lie very much in the fact that each person takes away something different and meaningful depending on what resonates with them. What it is true to say though is that there is always a learning point. Whether that is learning something about your own strengths or points to work on or learning how other people might behave, there is always something you can take from your time there. What I really love about this time is that it is not class room learning or lecturing. There is theory however, it’s put together so carefully by Jo, and Julian then illustrates the learning beautifully via physical activity that it certainly doesn’t feel like much work or effort is involved. The physical activity is always outside which in itself is a real treat as whatever the weather, it helps free the mind and leave you refreshed and invigorated. If you enjoy your golf, the added bonus is that you can pick up tips from Julian. If you don’t know anything about golf and care even less, the physical activity is not strenuous or complicated and you don’t need to have any particular knowledge or skills, it just illustrates the point. I find that being involved in discussions, in a safe and confidential space, and then following it up with activity means that I remember much more about the sessions than if I was lectured to. The membership is diverse and each person brings a new perspective to the table. Jo and Julian are the perfect hosts and facilitators. This time for me each month is absolutely golden and I look forward to it as a highlight of my month ahead "
"I get an opportunity once a month to get out of the business and develop my understanding of business related ideas/principles that very often also flow in to my personal life. I also have the opportunity to talk in confidence about anything going on in or outside of the workplace that I would value some feedback/second opinion on. The golf bit is an added bonus and often acts as something that takes your mind of day to day matters (as well as improving my technical ability)."
"As a busy CEO in the Education Sector I don't get much time to think and I certainly don't get much time for me so the monthly 1st Directors Club offers me sanity in a crazy world. I always come away with something that helps me be a better CEO" BM CEO in Education Sector
"For many years I've run my own business and it's full on. I recognised I needed to get out of the office more. It's always too easy to stay busy at the desk but I knew I needed to get away from it now and again. Jan and Feb were flat out and when I came to the meeting in February I was shattered but after the fresh air and some banter with the guys I left feeling so much better." RB, MD of Exhibition Company
"I love seeing you guys each month. Such a great laugh. Always make me feels so much better. The session on Wellbeing really made me think. I'd had a really busy time in work, we'd moved house and what I really needed to do that day was be at home not at work. The 1st Tee Directors club helps me realise what's the most important thing that I should be doing. It helps me get clarity of mind" JB, Business Owner Construction Sector
"The Directors Club is awesome. As a busy partner in a lawyer firm my life can be a bit crazy. I call my half day sessions my common sense and reality. I always take something away too. Everything is so much more memorable because we are outside". TC, Partner Law Firm
"There is nothing wrong with my life. I joined The 1st Tee Directors Club to see what else was out there. I think it's brilliant because I've met some really good friends and I always take something away that I can share with the team". EE Company Owner
"I've been in business clubs before but the ideas weren't sustainable. What I like about 1st Tee is that is it common sense with solutions that actually work. One memorable session that we did on Teamwork paid for my subs in one go" DH, Business Owner Financial Sector

"This course was extremely useful both for my career and golf alike. Using them both together was thoroughly engaging and something I will put into practice. I would recommend this course to anyone who is a keen golfer or for someone who would like to get into golf as this course can be related to any business out there. Both Jo & Julian were very approachable and made the day a lot of fun! "
