2019 Leadbetter Golf Academy Stoke Park Global Teaching & Business Summit

Join us on August 6 & 7, 2019 at the Leadbetter Golf European World Headquarters for our Annual Stoke Park Summit

Take your golf instruction and industry performance to the next level at our world-class teaching and business summit this August.

Guest speakers include a wide array of extremely talented professionals including an English cricketer, biomechanist, sports director, expert instructors and more.

Personally hosting the event is Leadbetter Golf Founder and world-renowned golf instructor, David Leadbetter, who won the 2017 PGA of America Teacher of the Year honor. David will exert his 30+ years of experience and passion for the game and provide exceptional learning opportunities for those wanting to excel in their careers. During his career, David has coached 26 players to Major Championships, 7 players to World No.1 but perhaps his greatest contribution to those within the golf industry is the number of instructors he has trained and certified who have gone on to have successful careers.

Headlining Day 1 will be Andrew Strauss, former England Cricket Captain and Director of the England and Wales Cricket Board. Andrew will discuss what has helped him achieve peak performance, and more specifically, how he was able to reach peak performance while under pressure.
