Have you got your place yet? Sign up now to Team Spirit Conference

There’s less than a month to go until our very first conference dedicated entirely to helping people make the most from volunteering in our fantastic sport.

Being held at the University of Birmingham’s Great Hall on Saturday 3rd February, the Team Spirit conference, funded by our partners Spirit of 2012, will bring together volunteers from right across the sport to grow, learn, share and celebrate with one another.

Alongside speakers already announced, we are also pleased to share that Jaz Bangerh, Head of HR and Volunteer Management at parkrun UK will be joining us to deliver a workshop all about how to create a fantastic experience for volunteers at your events. Carwyn Young, Strategic Lead for Volunteering at Sport Wales will also be with us to share their insight around the role of the Volunteer Coordinator and how this can benefit clubs.


Four-time Olympian and host for our event Donna Fraser said: "I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Team Spirit Conference, which promises to be an incredible day. I was lucky enough to sit on the National Panel for the Volunteer Awards last year and was simply blown away with the stories of the commitment and impact volunteers are making in our sport. The sport wouldn’t exist without them which is why events like this are so important."

Registration closes on Friday 26th January, so don’t miss your chance to book your place for this fantastic event! This event is completely free to attend and we are also hosting an informal celebration reception following the conference, which we hope you’ll be able to join us for.
