On the 25th of January we brought together some of the counties sports and physical delivery workforce for our Let’s Coach conference. The day, which was hosted by DoubleTree by Hilton Lincoln, aimed to update, upskill and educate as well as celebrate the fantastic work taking place across Lincolnshire inspiring people to get active.
Sessions covered a wide range of areas, from using social media to recruit and inform members, to ways to engage and retain volunteers and participants, and from inclusive coaching to using performance psychology to get the best out of yourself and your clients.
The day culminated with an Audience with guest speaker, Paralympic Champion and World Record holder Richard Whitehead MBE. Delegates enjoyed the chance to speak with Richard on a 1-2-1 basis, and he then delivered an inspirational talk and Q&A session during the dinner service which followed the workshops.
Delegates left the event feeling inspired and motivated, armed with new knowledge to aid their delivery.
