Do you run a sports club and want to get FREE advice on how to market your club from a global professional services firm?

If you do, then come along to a free workshop taking place on Thursday 21 March 2013 from 6:30pm at Runnymede Hall, South Benfleet, SS7 1TF.

Rochford District Council, Southend Borough Council and Castle Point Borough Council have teamed up to be part of the Club Leaders programme.

Club Leaders is being delivered by global professional services firm PwC who are working with Sport England to help improve business skills in sports clubs by bringing their knowledge and experience to sports clubs across the country.

The workshop is free of charge and offers help and advice covering a variety of subjects including: Developing a Marketing Strategy, Budgeting and Communication.

Club Leaders is part of the Olympic Legacy programme, Places People Play, and provides free business training and support to those doing the day-to-day running of community sport, helping create a robust, economically sustainable and enterprising club network.

Rochford District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Tourism, Heritage, the Arts, Culture and Business, Councillor Keith Gordon, said: “It’s very important that our local sports clubs have a stable foundation off the pitch to ensure continued success on it. To be able to access help and advice from a global professional services firm like PwC is a fantastic opportunity for local clubs. However, places are limited so I’d encourage local clubs to sign up as soon as they can”.
