Event description

Description

A workshop packed with entertaining, informative ideas and help on how to make your club vibrant, visible and viable, provide great experiences, communicate better and grow your income

Community sports clubs have to recognise that sport operates in the experience business and that it is competing for people's leisure time and money and has to attract people away from shopping centres, watching X-Factor, apathy etc. by providing better experiences.

Community sports clubs are also facing strong challenges in order to survive and grow in an increasingly competitive and demanding market. How to attract new members and retain the existing ones, become a hub of the community, grow sponsorship revenue, improve the social life of the club, increase media coverage, benefit from new technology, introduce new revenue streams...

In order to survive and grow sports clubs must 'listen to people's lives' and adapt new ways of running their clubs. They need to become more welcoming to attract and retain members and volunteers and they must 'speak people's' language' and communicate with them in a modern and engaging way.

The workshop will focus on the practical issues of setting up and developing a vibrant, visible and viable Community Sports Club, regardless of size and sport.
