On Monday 13th June 90 colleagues from all six County Sports Partnerships from across the East Region gathered at Center Parcs for the first East Region CSP Conference.
Under the banner of ‘East Region CSPs Working and Learning Together’ the conference looked to extend the learning and development opportunity offered by the National CSPN Conference to all East Region staff. Opened by John Clough Director of Suffolk Sport, the programme featured a keynote by Stuart King from BeeZeeBodies and Suzanne Gardiner from Sport England who delivered two workshops on Motivating Behaviour Change. The day was designed to be thought provoking, challenging colleagues to assess present and future engagement of individuals, groups and partners in terms of increasing physical activity. As a result the day encompassed the ‘Towards Next Generation CSP’ philosophy and the recent Sport England; Towards an Active Nation release.
This is intended to be the step towards the development of greater collaboration and learning opportunities across the Eastern Region in relation to areas such as; Developing & Managing Self, Developing Strategy, Insight, Research & Marketing, Partnerships and Working and Project & Programme Management.
