The BC Sport Leadership Conference brings together a diverse collection of organizations, teams, and individuals with the singular purpose of improving our craft.

The conference also provides opportunity to share previous experience, successes, and best practice with those of a familiar mindset.

Our speakers are entrusted with delivering engaging content in their areas of expertise. They’ve also been asked to present you with usable material and key takeaways.

Our partners have enriched the BC Sport Leadership Conference experience by planning additional sport specific symposiums, clinics, and educational opportunities.
