Live at Sport for Social Good 2019

We are live this morning at the University of Ulster hosting the 2019 Sport for Social Good Conference.

There is a very strong line up of speakers and a room filled with people who are central to the idea of using sport and sponsorship as a force for social and behavioural change.

Part of the Conference is the publication of our second annual Sport for Social Good Report, in partnership with Allianz.

A number of those will be part of this morning’s event and we will carry a full report from Ulster University on Friday morning.
