Why hospitality training is so important to Australian clubs

Clubs are an essential part of Australian life. Across the country, there are more than 6,000 clubs meeting the needs of their local communities, employing more than 170,000 employees and contributing nearly $10 billion to the economy every year. A key factor in this success is the people who work in our nation's clubs, providing high levels of service to members from all walks of life, and with all sorts of different needs.
