Beyond the photo op: engaging sports in effective and meaningful partnerships

In May 2018, SEIC hosted a session titled "Beyond the photo op: engaging sports in effective and meaningful partnerships" at the annual Engage for Good Conference in Chicago.  Featured speakers included the following:

 

  • Melanie LeGrande, Vice President of Social Responsibility, Major League Baseball

  • Sue Petersen, Executive Director, Giants Community Fund, San Francisco Giants

  • Matt Doubleday, Senior VP of Marketing, Wintrust Financial

Sports plays a powerful role in everything from uniting communities to influencing consumer behavior, but too often the focus is on photo ops and one-time events or activations.  This session shared personal experiences and offered guidance on risks and opportunities to consider when engaging in a sports partnership, as well as tangible suggestions for going “beyond the photo op”.  

 

Attendees walked away with a better understanding of:

  • the benefits and risks of working with a sports property (athlete, team, league or brand)

  • new ideas for working with sports entities and leveraging the power of sport to maximize the impact of your work

  • how to build a case for effective sports partnerships that are measurable and sustainable

  • when is it NOT a good idea to partner with a sports brand?  Warning signs that you should stay away!

Leading from Within - Leadership Skills for Sports Impact Professionals

In March 2018, SEIC led a session titled "Leading from Within - Leadership Skills for Sports Impact Professionals" at the annual U.S. Soccer Foundation Urban Soccer Symposium in Washington, D.C..

 

Sports has become one of the most popular and powerful tools in modern culture for uniting communities and equipping individuals from all backgrounds with valuable life-skills, but before nonprofit professionals can be effective and impactful leaders in the communities they serve, they need to hone their personal leadership skills as an individual and within their organizations.

 

This interactive session helped attendees recognize and assess their leadership strengths and opportunities. The session included a special focus on leadership techniques which aid organizations in gaining and retaining staff members and volunteers.
