This programme is for young people who have already shown evidence of leadership potential, but want to fulfil it. The Leadership Package offers incredible training and development opportunities to help build a powerful network of likeminded peers. 


The focus is on entrants aged 30 years or younger who work within the sport industry and aspire to grow their network, experience and knowledge for responsible leadership that will help drive the sport industry forward. Entrants must enter on their own behalf and be based in the UK. Check out the Sport Industry NextGen Leaders 2017 and 2016
