'Protecting the Sport and Leisure Provision Through a More Commercial Approach'
Protecting the future of the sport and leisure provision in Scotland with decreasing funding and increasing build and running costs is now extremely challenging. With comprehensive planning, needs analysis and carefully planning of the proposition we can maximise the potential income for differing facilities. This in turn raises the necessary income to fund key sporting and leisure activity.

'Clicks and Mortar. How Digital Coachbots Can Help Deliver Better Outcomes'
NICE* recommends Brief Interventions to helping people change. Behaviour changes the sector wishes to see include people becoming more active, engaging more in local programmes, and joining and staying as members. Virtual Health Labs has developed a suite of customisable, automated conversational agents to help nudge people towards change around physical activity, diet, weight loss, smoking, hazardous drinking and better mental health/wellbeing.
In this presentation I will explore the role of coachbots in behaviour change and their potential benefits – for instance, if they help increase membership retention they could save a leisure provider several thousand pounds each month, offering a good return on investment.
