Kudos to Student-Turned-Presenter Kadir

POSTED ON August 11, 2017 @ 2:31 pm

Azhan Kadir, Head of Human Resources at TPC Kuala Lumpur, created a notable slice of history at the fifth course to be offered under the Business Management Institute (BMI) Asia Pacific education programme.

Presented by the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF) and the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA), the latest BMI Club Management Course took place at Kuala Lumpur’s Kota Permai Golf & Country Club.

As well as representatives from a trio of influential Malaysian organisations – Sime Darby Group, Gamuda Land Clubs and the Berjaya Corporation Berhad – the five-day event attracted attendees from Thai Country Club, Singapore’s SAFRA, and The Canton Club and Agile Golf and Country Club in China.

The main presentation duties were expertly shared by Club Managers Association of Europe stalwarts Kevin Fish and Bill Sanderson.

Also making his mark as a presenter was Kadir. In so doing he became the first of the existing BMI intake to take up the challenge and responsibility of presenting to his peers.

Eric Lynge, the AGIF’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Azhan delivered a fantastic programme on the topic of Legal Issues in Employment. We could not have sourced a more capable and knowledgeable expert on this subject.

“Congratulations to Azhan. In the years ahead, we anticipate many other attendees following in his footsteps and becoming accomplished presenters.

“Azhan has set the benchmark. Now it’s upto others to take up the baton and share their knowledge with fellow club managements professionals in Asia.”

As well as the classroom lessons, participants were treated to a tour of the TPC Kuala Lumpur, courtesy of Steven Thielke, the club’s CEO and an AGIF Board Member, and Farroul Hossey, TPC Kuala Lumpur’s Club Manager.

The tour also included a visit to the MST Superstore at TPC Kuala Lumpur.

As the official partner in the globally-recognised Certified Club Manager (CCM) certification, the certification programme powered by CMAA is executed by the AGIF.

In 2015, the CMAA appointed the AGIF to execute the BMI education programme for the Asia Pacific region in partnership with existing CMAA partners in China, Hong Kong, Macau and New Zealand.

The BMI is a professional development programme developed and launched by the CMAA in the early 1980s. Noting managers at all phases of their careers need instruction, education or inspiration, the concept of the ‘lifetime professional development programme’ was born.

The vision was realised as a multi campus-based programme that provides tangible career benchmarks by which managers can track their progress and strive for various levels of competency, including a respected certification.

The curriculum is based on 10 competency areas covering every aspect of a club manager’s job.

In the CMAA 2015 Compensation and Benefits Report, it was reported that the head of club’s compensation with CCM designation was 31% higher than a head of club’s compensation without CCM designation.

The BMI programmes are completely endorsed and empowered by CMAA and is equivalent to what one can receive in the United States.
