The “Future of Sport 2018″ Conference looked at key issues in UK sport industry

At EOSE we know the importance of keeping up to date with current issues and industry trends. That’s the reason why, our  Director of Standards, Ben Gittus, attended the “Future of Sport 2018” conference in London, UK, on 8th February. The event was organised by Why Sports Media Group a social enterprise dedicated to assisting the wide range of organisations challenged with creating an active nation.

The 2018 edition was entitled “Activity and employment” and can be considered as a must attend event for forward thinking people working in the physical activity, sport, health and education landscape to share knowledge, get the latest insight, drive debate and engage in high quality networking.

Ben was able to network with colleagues from the UK sport sector and learn about new solutions for the issues and challenges sport is facing. The conference  -through a series of Workshops and plenary discussions- stimulated ideas and the promotion of best practice to meet the needs of participation skills, whilst showcasing numerous strategies and solutions that can inspire planning and facilitate conditions for improvement. It provided in particular cutting edge input across themes including physical literacy, tackling childhood obesity and maximising participation.

Of particular interest to us at EOSE were the sessions on how we create a workforce fit for the future, and recognise the significant contribution of the sector to the economy.

Ben also took the opportunity to speak with colleagues in the UK about the European Sector Skills Alliance (ESSA) project and the national activity which will take place in the UK.

As Ben said “it is important for my own professional development and useful for EOSE to attend major conferences at the European or national level to network and learn about strategies and solutions that can inspire planning and facilitate conditions for improvement”.
