KK&W Summit History:

What began as a small group of elite club managers looking to challenge and learn from one another became a catalyst for Executive Leadership At A Higher Level. Over time the founding group has hand selected more participants and hosted events for Golf Professionals, Racquets Professionals and other niche segments. They have also introduced legacy programming to encourage young managers, and most recently added SheLeads, to enhance programming specific to women in executive positions.

We hope to see you in November and welcome you with enthusiasm to our Inaugural KK&W Racquets Summit!
