This is the title of a presentation from Bevis Allen, Boxing Development Officer, at London Sport at the conference Enterprise and Collaboration in community sport and physical activity in London
This is a one-day event focusing 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 new technology.
The event takes place 8th December 2015 at The Podium, ArcelorMittal Orbit, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London
The presentation will cover how are we going to create community clubs that are going to still be around 50, 60, 70 years (and beyond) from now? This presentation will explore ways in which clubs can grow their membership, reach out into their local community and be self-sustainable. And also discuss why some clubs may be fearful to embrace change, passing up the opportunity for growth and having a bigger impact in their local communities.
This presentation will provide real life examples of what works well and how community clubs/organisations can influence the community around them.
Bevis Allen, Boxing Development Officer for London Sport, works with clubs affiliated to the NGB (England Boxing), 3rd Sector and other community organisations across seven London Boroughs to increase participation in the sport, develop sustainable clubs and provide general support.
