With only 2 positive cases out of nearly 2.5M participants in mass participation events in the last 9 months, it makes a powerful case for the low risk of COVID at well managed outdoor events. If you have recently staged a live in-person event please help us by taking a few minutes to answer the simple survey and please feel free to share it with others. Please allow two weeks after your event before completing the survey.
Honoured to have had such a diverse and informative panel for yesterday’s MPW Web Series “The New Partnership Landscape: Challenges and Opportunities”
Next MPW Web Series Thursday 15 July
Sustainability: Much more than delivering environmental outcomes
Many races still think of sustainability as delivering an environmentally friendly event but a truly sustainable race and business goes way beyond that. Join our international panel of experts for powerful insights into some of the opportunities you may be overlooking and an understanding of global best practice.
Strength in Numbers is an “open mic” fortnightly Zoom room to come and connect, ask for help with any challenge you may be facing, share ideas and lessons or just listen. This is an important time to support each other and share valuable global insights. See you on Monday/Tuesday, 21/22 June.
