Top executives from the physical activity sector's leading organisations will converge in Madrid, Spain, next month to discuss business issues that will affect the growth of the industry globally.

Bosses from companies including Matrix Fitness, GLL, Go Fit, MYZONE, Netpulse and Alliance Leisure, will attend a training programme that aims to help managers progress their own careers and drive their business to greater success.

The Global Active Leaders Programme, organised by ukactive, has been designed following consultations with company founders, senior directors and government stakeholders who work with the industry.

The three-day programme will feature case studies, discussions, live simulations, presentations and small-group learning activities, with topics including: leadership from the inside out, winning hearts and minds, succession planning, and mission-critical leadership.

The event, an extension of ukactive’s Future Leaders Programme which helps to develop rising stars, will also address increasing competition caused by the rise of technology and globalisation.

So far, nearly 30 senior executives from 10 different countries have signed up.

Gabriel Saez, founder and chief executive of Go Fit, said: “It's sometimes hard, as the CEO or leader of an international organisation, to take the time to stand back and think about your own development and how you can be the very best version of yourself.”

Steven Ward, ukactive chief executive, added: “Even the best players in the world have access to a coach, and the Global Active Leaders Programme marks the start of a conscious decision for all concerned to raise our game and strive for better.”

The programme will take place at the IESE Business School in Madrid from 27 February to 2 March.
