Duncan Goodhew – Redefining Sport Sponsorship:

‘Can the sporting elite be challenged by the everyday jogger?’

Learn how mass participation sport can provide the same appeal, power and return on investment as the sponsorship proposition of the elite.  Hear what the opportunities are for brands to play in this space now.

Duncan Goodhew and Bastien Hibon from Limelight Sports will be using examples from the field, together they will look at:

  • The art of successful mass participation engagement
  • The integral role of inspiration in leveraging communities around a brand
  • Who’s doing it well and the impact they are seeing (including the success of Sky Ride over Sky Team)

Founded in 1988, Limelight Sports is an engagement agency, enabling brands and communities to meet around sport. They have worked with brands including Nike, British Gas, Sky, Sainsbury’s, Sport Relief, Wiggle, ESPN and JP Morgan.
