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!

Reactions to Sport England Strategy

Reactions to Sport England Strategy

"Having sat on a draft copy of the Sport England Strategy for 2 weeks it was a great relief it was finally launched yesterday and now being able to comment on the new direction it outlines.

"Most of what I need to write about the strategy is on the Sports Think Tank website that we run. It is here that we have covered a range of reactions from our followers and picked up on comments from the media and other sports organisations. Most of the links are on our twitter feeds from what was a packed day of activity yesterday. There are still plenty of organisations who have not reacted publicly yet and are still absorbing the implications of the document.

I have also written my latest Sports management column about the strategy and will be unpacking the various implications over the summer months. Having read some reactions I am still not convinced people quite understand how different the investment will drive different outcomes and processes and the implications for their own funding.

At sajeImpact we are here to help.. so feel free to be in touch and we can see what we can do to help you navigate the strategy and how you react."
