Oh and by the way, I increased my Christmas Voucher sales by 34% on last year, I believe it was Smartpro!

The Smartpro System has been a great tool for my coaching business. With my lap top in hand I was able to secure an Adult Education coaching contract by showing what the system can provide. Local authorities are very keen to show government departments ways their courses can assess and evaluate students. The smartpro system ticks all the boxes and will not only help accelerate the students learning but help grow my business.

I started using the system a year ago and as an organisational tool, I have found nothing better'. As a knock-on effect, feedback from my clients is very positive.

We have been using Smart Pro as part of the County Academy Program. The kids love using the skills tests as a way to compete against each other plus it gives a great way to measure what their strengths and weaknesses are. They are also learning how to practice effectively and think about their games. Also, the goal setting exercise has been a great tool in teaching them the skill of setting small goals as way to achieve bigger goals. These tools have helped them get organised which is a great skill that will help their golf and whatever activity that they pursue.

Having a new computer system to deal with was not what Ineeded at a very busy time of the year when we first started the CAP Programme and phone calls were plenty in the early days but I have found the system easier and easier to use each year. The best thing ever this year was the ability to move players from coach to coach and to pick up players that had been on from year 1 with their details still there and very interesting to see the handicap changes.

Smartpro is the most comprehensive and multi faceted business tool that I have come across in 35 years of being a golf pro. It has been designed by people who really understand the needs of coaches and our clients. Smartpro gives serious coaches an edge; it is brilliant for maintaining relationships and contact with customers, easy to use, impressive to look at, personal to the individual teacher. It is a fantastic marketing device, every time I go into my home page I come out with another use or idea from the material on offer.  Golf pros without Smartpro are missing out!

Invest in Smartpro and your coaching will become more effective. Using the Stats cards is a must for any forward thinking, organised coach. Your students will have a better understanding of their areas of weakness and a clear direction on how to take their games to the next level.

The Coaching Toolkit is an essential resource to support Coaches and Managers working to develop young people with golfing potential, by providing a structured approach to how a Coach works with a young Player and enabling the Coach to guide the practice of a Player in between sessions.
The Coaching Toolkit greatly enhances the capabilities of the Player in accomplishing the hours of deliberate practice required for the achievements of performance.
A Coach utilising the resources within the Coaching Toolkit will inevitably find that they are providing an enhanced experience for the Player. The Coaching Toolkit therefore is a sign of quality coaching.

I was given the opportunity to use Smartpro by the Durham County Partnership in my role as one of their academy coach’s , I quickly realized what an impressive resource it was and quickly joined as an individual subscriber as I felt all of my students would benefit from the toolkit as has been the case.
I am reallly pleased to say that the majority of my regular users' handicaps are plummeting and Smartpro is playing a major role in that!

Just a quick line to say how much I value the Smartpro system. It covers all of the bases that I need to run a successful coaching service at the Olympics. I find it simple to use which will save me time in the future.

The Smartpro toolkit has revolutionised coaching as we know it.  For me it has enhanced my clients learning experience greatly.  Keeping pupil records using resources such as on-course stats, and having all the resources with my own branding makes my business a whole lot easier to manage.  Offering this service will improve both your professionalism and your profitability.  All coaches should be using the Toolkit, and along with the support from Sarah Claridge it is an invaluable and integral part of my business.  If you want to keep ahead of the game you cannot afford not to invest in Smartpro.

Sarah spent a few hours with me last summer and came up with some great ideas to help me increase my revenue and offer a better service to my customers.  I have managed to successfully implement many of these ideas and still have many left to try!  The level of professionalism and service that I received that day and in the following weeks was extremely high and I would therefore highly recommend Smartpro Coaching to anyone who wants to make their business/service more efficient and effective.

I have been successfully coaching full time for the past 12 years having worked at Sunningdale Golf Club as Head Assistant for 8 years previous to that. Every two to three years I find myself looking for something that is going to improve the standard of my coaching offering my client base something new and slightly different. Over the years I have discovered martial arts, NLP and the V1 computer coaching software package.

In 2006 having worked with a personal coach since 2005 it became obvious that my creative talents outstripped my organisational skills and I realized I had to address this issue. I then attended a PGA coaching seminar given by Sarah Claridge titled "The Professional Coach, is the Business", it was the most thorough and organised seminar I had attended for a long time and at the end Sarah mentioned that she was in the early stages of creating a package of assessment and evaluation of a coaches business. This would look for ways to improve organisational skills and communicational skills to give a perception to the student of interest in them and overall professionalism. I have now worked with Sarah over the past eighteen months and she has helped me to achieve all of the above which has led me to gain more enjoyment from my coaching and a 10% increase in my revenue.

If you work with Sarah you will get someone who is dedicated to organisational skills, forward thinking and consistent, a rare gem in the professional world.
