Leadership package

The Sport Industry NextGen Leaders receive a tailored year-long Leadership Package which includes executive training, personal development and networking opportunities.

The Kick-Off

The Kick-Off is the beginning of the programme, where the Sport Industry NextGen Leaders participate in a range of tasks that will be the foundations of a valuable network whilst helping them to sharpen their own leadership skills. The Coaches observe and engage with the Leaders as they challenge them to take risks, learn, and demonstrate their leadership capabilities. This will be an opportunity for the Leaders to make an impression with their peers and with the Coaches, for what will hopefully be an ongoing relationship as they continue to progress through their professional life.

Following the afternoon, the Sport Industry NextGen Leaders will have the opportunity to socialise over drinks and take part in the #SINextGen Quiz – the ultimate test of sport industry knowledge, with their fellow Sport Industry NextGen Leaders and alumni.

Executive Training Sessions

The Sport Industry NextGen Leaders will get direct access to some of the brightest minds and best organisations within sport and business for interactive best-practice, learning, and leadership sessions.

The sessions will cover key subject areas such as:

  • Building & Running a Successful Business
  • Communication
  • Creativity
  • Data
  • Diversity, Inclusion & Workplace Culture
  • Leadership
  • Pitching & Presenting
  • Sport, Business & Social Impact
  • Sustainability

These sessions will allow the Leaders to learn, broaden and demonstrate their understanding outside of their areas of expertise, and challenge them to become talented leaders.

Sport Industry Private Dining Club

The Sport Industry Private Dining Club is an exclusive, invitation-only members club meeting four times a year at some of the best venues in London. The Club is designed as a relaxed forum for senior industry leaders to host clients, partners or key contacts and exchange ideas and network with like-minded professionals. Members include top level representatives from leading brands, rights holders, agencies and organisations from across the sport industry. Members bring a different guest to each gathering, ensuring the network remains refreshed, with a new mix of influential, senior business leaders at every event. We also invite a speaker to say a few words and enjoy dinner with the attendees in an informal and relaxed setting.

The Sport Industry NextGen Leaders will receive an invitation to one of the 2022 events.


Informal drinks and occasions throughout the year for the Sport Industry NextGen Leaders network to develop the strong bond and community between the alumni from across all the different year groups.
