General info about WAoS
This programme provides a diverse, informative insight into the bidding for, preparing for, delivering and achieving legacy for major sporting events
One of the best courses I ever did in my sports career!
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
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.
This programme provides a diverse, informative insight into the bidding for, preparing for, delivering and achieving legacy for major sporting events

The programme gives the essential insights into how the engines of one of the biggest projects of humanity, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, work
