Salsa and Sangria Marketing Challenge-A Taste of Teamwork

Attendees will be divided into teams and tasked to create their own brand of Salsa and Sangria.
We will start the activity with a few fun challenges that lead into an interactive trivia game which allows for the teams to score points and funny money. The more they earn, they bigger their spend can be.
The “ingredients” store then opens and you can only purchase what you can afford with your funny money. Teams are sent to their stations to begin their creative process where they will cut, chop, mix and stir their creations. A marketing sub-team must brand, label and create marketing material for their products and then present a guerilla marketing commercial spot to the audience.

The Art of Customer Service, presented by Bill Hughes, MPGA

So YOU Want to be the Best?…What It Takes to Reach True Excellence and How You Can Achieve It

  • What drives you?
  • Become a life long learner
  • The best are mentally tough
  • Nothing is impossible
  • There is a formula for success

About Our Speaker – Bill Hughes, MPGA
After attending Bowling Green State University on a golf scholarship, Mr. Hughes moved to South Florida to chase his dream of becoming a PGA Professional.

With a passion for the development and growth of the game for over 30 years, Mr. Hughes has been significant in the development and growth of junior golf across the United States. He currently sits on the boards of the American Junior Golf Association and the North Florida Golf Association. Bill has been recognized by his peers and the PGA of America with the “Junior Golf Leadership” award on more than one occasion. This past year Mr. Hughes was the recipient of the first annual American Junior Golf Association “General Manager of the Year” Award.

Mr. Hughes was hired by the PGA TOUR in 1996 to oversee their club operations in Memphis, Tennessee at TPC Southwind, and it was there that Mr. Hughes discovered his passion for “giving back”. Throughout his tenures as General Manager with the PGA TOUR in Cincinnati, Ohio at TPC River’s Bend, Dallas, Texas at TPC Craig Ranch, and currently Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida at the famed TPC Sawgrass, Mr. Hughes has partnered with the local, regional, and nation golf communities in raising hundreds of millions of dollars for local charities that truly save and change the lives of those that need it the most.

In 2013, Mr. Hughes was once again recognized by his peers in the golf industry and the PGA of America with the prestigious “Bill Strausbaugh Award” for community involvement and philanthropic engagement and the “PGA Professional of the Year” Award recognizing the PGA golf professional that best exemplifies the core values put forth by the organization.
