NETWORK WITH A GLOBAL AUDIENCE OF BRAND LEADERS
The Beyond Sport Summit provides a unique opportunity to engage with senior leaders from around the world. No other event in the world of sport brings together such a wide range of individuals, brands and sectors.
Over 65% of delegates are in leadership and decision-making positions within their organisation and it is a truly global gathering of corporate brands, national and international sport govering bodies, professional sport leagues and teams and world-reknowned international development organisations.
LEARN FROM PRACTICAL CASE STUDIES AND HAVE AN INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE OF HOW SPORT CAN DRIVE SOCIAL CHANGE
This year at Beyond Sport we are doing something a bit different. For one day we are taking delegates out of the conference centre and into the heart of Soweto for a day of experiential learning. Through in depth workshop sessions, on-pitch curriculum activites and expert networking opportunities, delegates will learn from leading investors, industry experts, global practitioners, young leaders and academic experts about the ways in which sport can be used to tackle key social issues.
BE PART OF A GLOBAL MOVEMENT OF SPORT AND SOCIAL CHANGE
'The entire chain of organizations, from brands to well-meaning community activists, go the Beyond Sport Summit – the people who combine to make actual tangential impact.'
Michael Johnson, Multi-Olympic Gold Medallist and Beyond Sport Ambassador
