This programme provides a diverse, informative insight into the bidding for, preparing for, delivering and achieving legacy for major sporting events
Really inspired me to step outside of my comfort zone and gave me a new way of thinking about my role in the sport industry
The programme gives the essential insights into how the engines of one of the biggest projects of humanity, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, work
It's been an amazing opportunity to discuss so many issues surrounding the world of Sport, with so many positive people
I am speechless. I came with an empty cup, now I have something to share. Inspired with how to implement what I have learned.
One of the best courses I ever did in my sports career!
You may have developed strategies before, but the IPC workshop has been simplified and modified for the NPCs to get on with planning and implementation
