Once again the ukactive National Summit doesn’t disappoint. An event that is designed to tackle the real issues that the industry faces around the physical state of the nation. Active Nation as regular supporters of the Summit see this as a 'must-attend' in order to design and create meaningful and relevant communication messages to campaign to persuade people to be more active. I would have no hesitation in recommending this event!"

Stuart MartinDirector of Active Nation

By far the best team I've ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them as a company, you simply just won't find any better team!

Our learnings from the summit helped to inform the role of Inspiring healthy lifestyles working with GP clusters in Wigan Borough on integrating wellbeing, health and social care and the development of Healthier Wigan Together, the integrated care organisation, joining up services for residents to help them manage their own care, and stay well and independent within their communities.

Collectively we continue to present our joined up approach across Wigan, Greater Manchester and nationally, strengthening our co-design of solutions for increasing physical activity. We involve ukactive as key external contributors to projects across Wigan Borough, something we’re looking to extend across Greater Manchester moving forwards.”

It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with such an engaging and dedicated group of leaders at the first ukactive Global Active Leaders event in Madrid in February. It’s not often that you have the opportunity to step back and reflect on your own role and leadership style in such an environment. We could explore, discuss, analyse and share ideas from both within and outside of our sector regarding leadership effectiveness and excellence. The standard of delivery by all the professors at IESE Business School was outstanding, and it was a pleasure to observe their energy and ability to facilitate and guide group discussions to get the very best out of each session. I would highly recommend the experience that ukactive has provided for our sector leaders in partnership with IESE to any leader who continually strives to be better.”

There’s no question about it – the UK is really getting hot over the boutique market. Sweat, as ukactive has proven for the second year now, is the place to get the insights, to understand what’s going on and to get the latest trends, whether local or global.”

Dave WrightCEO of MyZone

One of the quotes a professor said was “Leadership you cannot touch it but you can feel it “ and after the week with some great people from within the industry this quote sticks with me as a summary of my time in Barcelona and the future leaders programme.”

I’ve noticed that the more I do, the more I’m capable of doing. I don’t feel so out of breath and I feel much fitter. When you haven’t exercised for a while, your joints start to ache from lack of movement, but I’m pleased to say that my joints have got used to moving and I can keep on going. Exercise gets your heart going and as a result, it gets you fitter!”
