There are seasons to life I believe. Well it certainly feels like that as I start September 2018.
A number of Sport Board positions come to their natural end after several years of voluntary service - The Sport & Recreation Alliance , Special Olympic and CIMSPA . I want to thank everybody who has helped and supported me during the last 8 years since leaving Parliament (losing the election!) and welcoming me into the world of sport.
It has been another fascinating learning curve working with a sector I have passion for and trying to bring a fresh perspective and influence practise and policy. I will continue to do this but in different ways over the next 'season', mainly through The Sports Think Tank and through SAJEIMPACT LTD where I have generated a series of partnerships to bring the best people I have worked with to the sector - like David Slemen Sport:80 Services Limited . As always Loughborough University Loughborough University London will play a large part of what I do.
I will announce a few new NED positions too over the coming weeks.
I have always had a passion for my home county so I will be doing more economic growth work in Leicestershire through the LLEP too
Here is to the new season. Even if that includes retiring formally from Birstall RFC!
“Saje Impact continues to go from strength to strength as we find new clients and partners coming to us for help. We will always remain small and bespoke but we still remain open to speaking to anybody who we think enhances life and makes a positive impact on society about how we might work together”
