OUR SPEAKERS

Why Sports work alongside an advisory board to identify the ideal conference topics that are most relevant to the progression of the sport and leisure and activity sector.

 

With the support of accredited sector professionals ranging from Central Government to community partnership teams and their associations, the Why Sports conference series has become renowned across the globe. 

Several speakers seize the opportunity to further engage with the leaders from across sport and activity to push forward the overarching agendas whilst assisting sector professionals to navigate their specific plans and ideas.
