We are pleased to confirm the full speaker lineup for this week’s Children and Sport 2021 event, taking place online on Thursday morning between 10 and 11:30.

Over 90 minutes we will cover a wide range of topics relating to the way in which children can access and enjoy sport as we emerge from the Covid 19 restrictions.

Engaging children in sport is vital in creating a lifelong connection that has countless benefits in terms of physical and mental wellbeing and in fostering an inclusive society.

We have gathered a range of speakers to share their thoughts and experience and we will also engage with an audience drawn from across the Sport for Business membership and around the world.
