The Annual Sport for Business Sport for Social Good Conference, in partnership with Allianz, will take place at the Irish Film Institute on Eustace Street in Dublin on the morning of Thursday, October 5th.

There is nothing we like more than bringing smart people together, and when that doubles up with inspiring you to see how you and your organisation can make a real difference, then that is a winner in every way.

On Thursday, October 5th we have built a powerful lineup of inspiring speakers, and we would love for you to be part of the conversations they will spark.

Allianz have been our partner in this area of Sport for Social Good for five previous Annual gatherings, every one of which has been one of the highlights of the year.

Roisín Jones is the programme manager for Dare to Believe at the Olympic Federation of Ireland.

The programme brings Olympians into school environments to tell their story and inspire the next generation to aspire towards their own form of greatness whether in sport or in another field entirely.

The popularity of the programme has accelerated quickly since it was first launched in 2019.  Backed by the International Olympic Committee Solidarity Fund and Permanent TSB, it has reached over 150,000 children and when this year’s programme was launched earlier this month the available school places were all snapped up within minutes.


Make sure of your tickets to see Roisín and our other great and inspiring speakers here.



The environment is an ever more important consideration for sport to be seen to be doing the right thing.  Apart altogether from the impact which climate change has on the way games are played and tournaments are organised, it is right in the centre of what we can do to improve the world around us.

We are delighted to have Jan Czaplicki, the co-founder of Carbon Click joining us for an important session as part of Sport for Social Good 2023.

Carbon Click is working with some of the world’s major sporting events from the 2022 FIFA World Cup to F1, finding ways to help offset the travel and activity that is part of sport.

During our conversation we will look at the cost of offsetting the Irish Rugby teams’s Rugby World Cup adventure, the FAI Women’s National team’s trip to Australia and more.

It promises to be an eye-opening and action-inspiring session.




Lorna Danaher is the driving force at Energia behind the new Rugby For All initiative, a five year commitment to expanding the access to the sport among groups that have traditionally found it harder to play.

Working with Leinster Rugby and a wide supporting cast, leveraging the brand relationship across sport and other areas, this will be a conversation about bringing people together in more ways than one.




Graham Clifford, the inspiring founder of the Sanctuary Runners and the Sanctuary Swimmers that have made Irish Sport a more welcoming place for all regardless of colour, creed, identity or gender will be joining us on stage to tell the story of this powerful movement.


We will shortly be announcing our final panel discussion and our four special knowledge bursts of programmes that have come to life in the past twelve months from Sport for Business members that have made a real difference, as well as the full timetable for the morning, including the opportunity to meet your peers in the ‘purpose’ field.

Tickets are now available for you to join us for this special event, the sixth we have run in this space and more important now than ever before.

Book your place here for the event.

Places are limited and the event will sell out.
