Fourteen times golfing champion Bernard Gallacher is in Harrogate this Friday (17 June 2011) talking to business leaders about his success in the game.
Gallacher first won the PGA Championship in 1967 and played every Ryder Cup between 1969 and 1983.
He will address delegates at an ActionCoach event at Harrogate Golf Club where they will also receive two hours of golfing tuition.
Harrogate business coach Hayley Erner said the experiences of a successful sports professional like Gallacher were particularly relevant to business owners.
“There are many parallels between business coaching and sports coaching,” said Hayley, whose ActionCoach business is based at Hornbeam Park in Harrogate.
“A professional sports person would never expect to be at the top of the game without expert coaching and businesses are recognising the need for coaching to keep their organisations ahead of the competition.”
