Business is Personal - RCA Shorts - Lessons after 10 Years in Business
As much as we like to think that the personal and business world are separate - I’ve come to learn in the last 10 years that they in fact really aren’t. The fundamentals of building a relationship with another human being in the business context is not that far removed from the fundamentals in our personal world. We as individuals get so caught up in our own worlds that we don’t communicate often enough with those in our business ecosystems. I’m speaking generally of course because there are examples of individuals who do this brilliantly. For more information on RCA, visit www.rcaconsulting.biz or learn.rcaconsulting.biz.

After graduating from Pretoria Boys HS, he studied at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg graduating with a teaching degree in Physical Education and History. Michael started his teaching career at the renowned King Edward VII School in South Africa where he taught PE and History. Michael’s desire for education then brought him to the United States, where he studied at UCLA for a brief time. It was this experience at UCLA that drove him to complete his Master’s degree in Sport at East Carolina University. Michael’s life-time goal of a career in sport has been realized and he is the first one to tell you that the only positions he has ever had, have been in the sports industry. His experience in sport has run through many different industries; hotel/resort management; stadium management; athlete representation; event management; sports retail and finally private club management.

One of Mike’s career highlights was guiding Congressional Country Club to the #1 spot in the Platinum Clubs of America and into the top 100 of Platinum Clubs in the World.Education combined with certification are what Mike believes are the cornerstones of success in business and in life and to that end Mike is a Certified Club Manager (CCM) and Certified Chief Executive (CCE) through CMAA, as well as a certified PGA member through the PGA of America and the PGA of South Africa (Master Professional). In 2011 Michael was recognized as the CMAA Club Manager of the Year for his dedication and commitment to the club industry and, in 2013 he was presented The Boardroom magazine - Jim Singerling Leadership Award.
