Sports in the Era of Social Responsibility Workshop Series

This timely offering on essential subject matter for the modern era of the sports business. The series is staged from Level 1 – 3 for organizations to take a deep strategy dive, develop new revenue and build brand equity.

Participants come away with instantly applicable insights from business case studies and reality-based tools to drive their organization’s growth and mission objectives.

Level 1
Sports x SDGs

Understanding the New Global Language of Sports Partnerships

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have emerged as a rapidly adopted common language to address economic, social and environmental issues by 193 countries and over 2500 global corporations, including the world’s Top 100 sports sponsors. They also present an exceptional opportunity for sports teams to develop and retain key brands’ perceived value of their partnership with your franchise.

This workshop is designed for sports leagues, teams and rightsholders to understand and leverage the language of the SDGs to drive partnership revenue and develop fresh, on-point activations with triple bottom line ROI.

Run regionally as a ‘huddle’ for multiple teams’ front offices or teams within a specific league, or as a custom session for your organization.

The session was definitely food for thought and quite inspirational.

We bring all the reasons we love sport – passion, energy, loyalty, rivalry – in to the mix as we develop a killer asset and identify key partner leads for it – that you can walk out the door and sell tomorrow.
