18 Weeks and Counting

18 Weeks and Counting

I will be 55 in just 18 weeks time. For me life will be able to take another step into the next season in my life.

When this happens I am hoping to make greater use of this site for my musings on life and the world around! I have one big interview in May which might put these plans back a little bit (about 4 years) but either way there will be more time for travel and writing.

Stay tuned.


Seasons in Life - The Next one for Andy and Saje Impact

There are seasons to life I believe. Well it certainly feels like that as I start September 201Changes in 2018!8.

A number of Sport Board positions come to their natural end after several years of voluntary service - The Sport & Recreation Alliance , Special Olympic and CIMSPA . I want to thank everybody who has helped and supported me during the last 8 years since leaving Parliament (losing the election!) and welcoming me into the world of sport.

It has been another fascinating learning curve working with a sector I have passion for and trying to bring a fresh perspective and influence practise and policy. I will continue to do this but in different ways over the next 'season', mainly through The Sports Think Tank and through SAJEIMPACT LTD where I have generated a series of partnerships to bring the best people I have worked with to the sector - like David Slemen Sport:80 Services Limited . As always Loughborough University Loughborough University London will play a large part of what I do.

I will announce a few new NED positions too over the coming weeks.

I have always had a passion for my home county so I will be doing more economic growth work in Leicestershire through the LLEP too

Here is to the new season. Even if that includes retiring formally from Birstall RFC!

Currently held in London once a quarter, The LiFT is produced by the team at Racefully, and supported by friends and partners includingCrowdshed and The Raine Group.

Andy said "I have been meeting the founders of this great network over the last year or so..and just love the spirit of a group of creative people with some great business ideas but wit a passion to make a difference in the sport and physical activity space. It was great to share a different perspective from a policy point of view and to learn so much from the entrepreneurs in the room."

Loughborough University at the Olympic Park

Loughborough University at the Olympic Park

It is now official. Loughborough University will have a presence on the former Olympic Park now of course known as the Queen Elizabeth Park.

I have been excited by this prospect for some time, and especially since I have had more involvement in developing and delivering our International Sports MBA at the University since the end of 2012.

I firmly believe that our sporting brand is strong and can only be strengthened with our global association with the Olympic Park. It puts us at the heart of the legacy of the Park and gives us a great platform to deliver more of the quality sports environment hat we get used to in Loughborough.

Here are the comments from the VC and links to the main story.

Loughborough University - in its own words

BBC News Coverage

And of course the Icity Website

The unique opportunity will enhance the International appeal of Loughborough University
