At SLC we have worked hard to ensure that expert knowledge is the basis for everything we do. We believe in sharing this knowledge and in learning from others to ensure that our sector is the very best that it can be.
We facilitate and share best practice through our sector-leading Think Tanks and our continued commitment to being a leading voice in the sector, through our publications and articles.
Our SLC online LinkedIn™ forum attracts over 1,400+ people from the sector who share ideas, debate and explore critical and timely issues.
“There is nothing like this type of session anywhere else”.
SLC has developed a sector-leading facilitated workshop that we call a Think Tank. Typically, we select a hot industry topic – for example, sustainable leisure partnerships, strategic planning or leisure procurements – and invite senior representatives from councils, leisure operators and other key elements of the supply chain to discuss their own situation, review case studies, hear from colleagues and share experiences.
The environment is confidential, supportive and focused on our clients’ professional needs with no pre-arranged script or agenda.
Who should attend?
SLC Think Tanks are primarily aimed at public service senior officers and elected members with strategic responsibility for leisure and cultural services, and senior finance/transformation managers. SLC clients can attend Think Tanks free of charge.
Why invest time in attending an SLC Think Tank?
What is unique about SLC’s approach is that you are the key contributor, supported by input from sector-leading experts and your own peers. This creates a rich learning environment, building confidence and new support networks among delegates.
“I thought the content was well-presented and networking opportunities were excellent. I learnt a lot. I really enjoyed the break-out sessions and the opportunity to learn what was going on and share ideas from other projects.” June 2016 feedback.
Our next Think Tank event is scheduled for 13 February 2019 in Holywell Park, Loughborough on planning and delivering sustainable and effective Leisure, Sport and Physical Activity services.
To request further details about our events, or if you are unable to attend an event but would be interested in a personalised session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SLC has a long history of writing thought-provoking, informative and sometimes controversial articles aimed at generating debate and fresh thinking on key industry topics.
These have been published through a range of sources, including Sports Management, The Leisure Review, CIMSPA’s Sport and Physical Activity Professional journal, Government Business and the Municipal Journal.
You can access all our previous publications through the SLC archive, showcasing some of the articles, thought pieces and strategies developed by the team, along with other articles of relevance.
