Sport for Business is today issuing a call for sponsorship projects that are using sport as a prism through which social good is being created in communities all across Ireland.
They will form part of our second annual Sport for Business Sport for Social Good Report to be published at this year’s Sport for Social Good Conference taking place at Ulster University’s Riverside Theatre on the opening day of the 148th Open Championship at nearby Royal Portrush Golf Club.
The R&A, one of sport’s longest established and most influential sporting bodies will deliver a keynote presentation on the programmes they are introducing to impact on sustainability and the world around us.
They will be joined by some of Ireland’s leading sporting and business organisations to deliver thought leadership discussion and presentation around this key area.
“We want to invite members f the Sport for Business community to share the projects they are bringing to life through sport and that are having a real impact on communities across the island of Ireland,” said Sport for Business founder Rob Hartnett.
“This is one of the core elements of many innovative partnerships between sport and business and it means a lot to the companies involved through their internal as well as external messages and values.”
“Our 2018 Report and Conference, featuring the work of the Manchester United Foundation set a benchmark for the kind of work that is taking place in this area and we want to beat that this year by shining a light on the really imaginative and important work that is being enabled by businesses relationship in the sporting world.”
Sport for Business members who would like to see their projects feature as part of this year’s Report and Conference should get in touch through Rob@SportForBusiness.com quoting Sport for Social Good to see their projects feature in this year’s report. the closing date to make contact for inclusion in the report is Thursday, June 20th.
