Seminar objectives

APSE Southern is delighted to announce this unique opportunity to consider the role of local authorities in addressing inactivity, affecting system change in participation levels and ensuring the health and wellbeing of the local population.

Hosted at The Oval cricket ground, the day will explore how we can drive social and financial value when re-tendering sports and leisure provision, emerging digital innovation in sports and leisure provision and maximising profitability in leisure operations.

Speakers include Rosie Rowe, Director – Bicester Healthy New Town Programme, Cherwell District Council sharing learning from a Healthy New Town demonstrator site, seeking to encourage more physical activity in schools and workplaces, Chris Strong, Service Manager for Go-Gateshead Sports and Leisure looking at how we might be more commercially minded and customer focused in leisure centre operations and William Bird MBE, CEO of Intelligent Health exploring how we can engage communities in active lifestyles connected to nature and the role of leisure services in supporting the roll-out of social prescribing.

On the day, a county cricket match will be underway at the Oval which delegates can dip in and out of free of charge in lunch and break-times.

Packed full of ideas and forward-thinking initiatives, we look forward to welcoming you to this sporting destination to explore with like-minded colleagues the local authority role in tackling inactivity across social-economic groups and the effective provision of sports and leisure services.
