Conversation Matters: You Ask, We Share!

Date: October 28, 2020

Time: 10:00 a.m. MT

The Sport Law & Strategy Group (SLSG) has launched Conversation Matters: You Ask, We Share! free online sessions with real time advice for sport leaders from SLSG Partners Steven Indig and Dina Bell-Laroche. The intention is to give back to the sport community that SLSG has been serving since 1992 by providing effective measures to deal with what might be keeping them up at night. In light of current world events, this week’s conversation will remain flexible, based on questions from participants, and hopefully leave sport leaders feeling informed and inspired to put in place measures to manage COVID-19.

Petro-Canada sport leadership sportiff conference

Date: November 4 – 6, 2020

Our sport community encompasses daring leaders and courageous change makers. We witness thoughtful acts of inclusivity, resilience, self-care and collaboration, and these examples of deliberate action challenge us to rethink our own behaviours and assumptions.

For growth to continue we need to open ourselves to vulnerability. A more diverse and inclusive structure for all participants must be established at home, in our boardrooms, on our fields of play, and in our locker rooms. Through a series of engaging keynote presentations, breakout sessions and networking opportunities, delegates will be motivated to consider how their intentional acts of courage, inclusivity, and resilience can shape positive change.

Join your fellow sport leaders in celebrating moments of courage witnessed in 2020, and collectively committing to design and inspire future acts of courageous leadership in our sport community.

We’re excited to take advantage of all the benefits a virtual platform can offer, starting by expanding content over four days — from October 13 through October 16.
