SLC had a fantastic think-tank-june-16and productive day at the Think Tank Seminar – Optimising your Leisure Procurement on the 2 March at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, Sheffield.

The session was designed to provide a platform for best practice, sharing of lessons learned and promote the development of more effective partnerships, leisure contracts and outcomes.

Local authorities that attended include Manchester City Council, South Kesteven District Council, Nottingham City Council, Harborough District Council, West Lindsey District Council, Gedling Borough Council, Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils and East Staffordshire Borough Council.

Looking ahead, SLC will be shortly sending out invitations to Local Authorities in the Midlands, London and South-East for our Summer Think Tank. The dual focus will be on Leisure Procurement and Asset Management, featuring SLC’s strategic partners Set Square Surveyors. This invitation-only event has been scheduled for 6 June 2017, Watford.

The day will feature breakout sessions in which Set Square Surveyors will present innovative approaches to managing and protecting the value of your leisure assets.

This session with Paul French from Set Square provides delegates with an opportunity to learn, how through a leisure management contract, leisure assets can be proactively maintained to ensure proactive asset management and maintenance by your operator and minimise the life cycle costs of their buildings.
