Cricket star Henry Olonga to speak at active-net 2015

by Jak Phillips | 05 Mar 2015

Former Zimbabwean test cricketer Henry Olonga has been announced as the after-dinner speaker for this year’s active-net event.

Olonga made his international cricketing debut in 1995, becoming the youngest player to represent Zimbabwe and the first black cricketer to play for Zimbabwe.

active-net, now in its second year, will take place from 29-30 April at imago Burleigh Court and Holywell Park, Loughborough. As well as one-to-one buyer and supplier meetings, the physical activity sector event will feature a strong educational element and networking programme. It is aimed at all operators and suppliers with a focus on the public sector, whether it be Trusts, Local Authorities or Universities/Colleges.

This year’s educational workshops will focus on the latest research from organisations including Les Mills International, The Leisure Database Company and Leisure-net Solutions. Topics under discussion will include leadership and professional development in the sector, as well as how to improve insight and intelligence in the sector.

“The quality of the speakers in our workshops this year is exceptional,” said Mike Hill, active-net organiser and managing director of Leisure-net Solutions.

“For our keynote session we are introducing something totally new to the sector, which will hopefully make people think differently about how they do business and manage their work/life balance. We will be announcing further details of this shortly.”

As well as Leisure Opportunities, which will be active-net’s media partner, additional supporters on board for this year’s event include ukactive, CLOA, The Senior Managers Network of BUCS and CIMSPA.
