Sports Governance Conference

Date: 24th November 2017

Location: UKRIAT

Date: 24 November 2017

Duration of Programme: Full day event

Venue: Saffron House, 6-10 Kirby Street, London, EC1N 8TS

 

Governance in sport is very much in the spotlight at the moment, what with heightened scrutiny around such issues as culture and welfare in sports organisations, and the implementation in April this year of the mandatory Sports Governance Code.

This new one-day conference offers a timely opportunity to assess how sports organisations are getting to grips with the challenges of good governance and consider the importance of good governance for securing the long-term health of the sector. We will look at the new Code and its provisions, and the ramifications of non-compliance, and discuss the importance of sports organisations taking a pro-active, rather than reactive, approach to the challenges they face. We will also delve deeper into key issues such as safeguarding, increasing diversity and changing organisational culture.

The conference will combine insights from a range of experts on the latest in governance thinking, and offer delegates an opportunity to share ideas and learn from one another.

The failure of Kids Company has again reared its head with a recent announcement from the Insolvency Service that it is seeking to disqualify the former trustees and CEO from ever working again as company directors. Although certainly rare, this case has highlighted how quickly a seemingly competent board can lose control of an organisation and the severe consequences that trustees can face.

This half-day, interactive workshop will provide trustees, executives and governance professionals with an opportunity to discuss some of the core issues currently dominating the sector headlines including: how to identify destructive personalities in the boardroom, improving trustee oversight and how to balance risk and reward.
