How to Lead an Activity Organisation


Share this episode

From Coordinate Sport it’s The Drive Phase, a show about sports founders, leaders, and experts and the stories behind their business journeys.

Part six of our wrap-up series brings together the best insights from our previous episodes and is a great way to jump in and sample the Drive Phase content.

We’ve taken the opportunity on this episode to reflect on those conversations and selected clips from 10 guests across 9 episodes to cover a range of key topics.

We also want to take the opportunity to thank all of our listeners for your support and ask that you subscribe and leave a review on Apple Podcasts or follow us on Spotify.

Since starting the show we have gone from strength to strength and are so pleased we have been able to execute on our vision of supporting physical activity providers to grow. I am excited to say we have been shortlisted in the Sports Podcast Awards. Please vote for us in the ‘Best Sports Business’ Category.

Welcome to this week’s episode of The Drive Phase Podcast and part six of the Lessons From Leaders series.
