Clients tell me that persuasive communications is an area in which I excel. Normally, I harness this competency to create thought-provoking articles, reports and conference presentations. However, in 2005, I  started to think about producing my first book for senior managers in the health club industry. Mastering Health Club Management is the result.

The industry reaction is very positive which vindicates the many sleepless nights in pulling together a 200-page book of management inspiration and ideas. Thirteen industry experts have contributed chapters on:
