Charleston, S.C. – NGCOA is pleased to announce Gideon Yu, former Chief Financial Officer of Facebook and YouTube, co-owner and former president of the San Francisco 49ers, and current member of PGA of America’s Board of Directors, as our Special Guest at Golf Business TechCon 2023.
On Tuesday, October 10, Gideon will join NGCOA CEO Jay Karen, and Vice President of the PGA of America and Owner of Augusta Ranch Golf Club Don Rea, for a Golf Business LIVE first: our first on-location episode of Golf Business LIVE, live from Las Vegas! (Please note: This exclusive Golf Business LIVE can only be experienced in person by Golf Business TechCon23 attendees; it will not be transmitted through its regular channels or recorded.)
Gideon will join Jay and Don on stage to recount engaging and enlightening stories over a dynamic career, offer his perspective and insights on the golf industry, business and technology, and share his message for facility owners and operators as we continue down a road of unrelenting innovation and transformation. As a former executive at Facebook and YouTube (the first two internet companies to achieve over one billion active users), and an original investor and board member for Square, Gideon has a unique perspective for emerging technology, as well as the risks, challenges and opportunities that exist for business owners.
Golf Business LIVE was launched in April 2020, and each month since, co-hosts Jay and Don have interviewed the most prominent figures across the business of golf on the popular online broadcast. Golf Business LIVE covers key industry headlines and takes questions live on the air from an audience of owners, operators and golf facility decision makers.
