This year at the Northern Coaching Conference we want to focus on supporting leaders and coaches to develop their knowledge, practice and skill to move from Good to Great. Coaches can come together and help improve what we do through the sharing of best practice as well as having the opportunity to explore concepts through practical sessions.
We are pleased to announce that Malcolm Brown will deliver the opening keynote at the North Coaching Conference on 27th September.

Park-goers enjoying the sunny skies on Sunday 29th June were joined by staff from NW NHS trusts as they took part in their annual NHS Games 5k. Now in its third year the 5k event continues to grow, attracting over 150 participants this year with support from the GetGoing! Campaign and England Athletics for 2014.
The NHS North West Games 5k event takes place on 29th June and this year is supported by England Athletics their Get Going! in Liverpool. The event is part of the NHS North West Games which is a workplace competition across a number of sports to provide a great motivation to help get the workforce more active, build stronger bonds within teams as well as have some good old-fashioned fun.
England Athletics, National Trust and Merseyside Sports Partnership have been working together to bring a second 3-2-1 route to Liverpool as part of the GetGoing! campaign for the city. The three routes - 1K, 1.5K and 2.5K in distance - offer a picturesque setting within the grounds of the wood-framed wattle-and-daub Tudor manor house.
