Behind the Scenes: Leadership with Catherine Clifton, PGA Director of Championships

August 3, 2021

If you've ever wondered what goes into planning major events, particularly sporting events, this episode is a peek inside what it takes to pull off an enormous, televised sporting event. In this episode, we sat down with Catherine Clifton, the youngest director of PGA Championships for the KPMG Women's PGA Event this past June. We talk about what it is like to work in a male-dominated field as a female, especially so early in her career. We also learn about the perspective Catherine has towards success, having a successful team behind her, and how she handles the inevitable setbacks and failures that come with major event planning. Catherine is wise beyond her years and shares how she has developed strong leadership through practices like self-awareness and meditation.
