This is the title of a presentation to be given by Gordon Clark, Senior Officer, Sport Wale, at the conference Enterprise and Collaboration The way forward for community sport and physical activity across all-Ireland held on 11th March 2015 at W5, Odyssey Centre, Belfast
This is a one-day event focussing on how community sports providers can meet the challenges and benefit from new opportunities created by changes in people’s lives, the political landscape and the economic situation
This presentation will ask and answer the question; is “profit” in community sport a dirty word? Gordon Clark will share his and Sport Wales’s journey from not supporting enterprise to embedding it into everything they do. What started as a lone voice is growing into an enterprise movement across Wales. There is still a long way to go but hear how Sport Wales has engaged the business development sector, how they are shifting partner perceptions, creating the workforce of the future and most importantly making an impact to community sport.
Gordon Clark has worked in community sport for 24 years and has spent the last 10 years with Sport Wales. Gordon has a passion for club development and has made it his goal to create an enterprise culture across sports development, sports clubs and the sector.
