It’s a busy time here at RAPs with the pilot closing this month. To help build on the pilot’s success and help develop a wider awareness of the Register, we attended Flame 2013, an event run by ukactive.
With a conference taking place during the way, a fantastic learning and networking opportunity was presented to the delegates, made up fitness professionals from all across the industry, from swimming instructors and lifeguards to directors and CEOs.
An impressive programme was installed with seminar-style sessions covering a diverse range of topics, including marketing, technology, management, personal development, sales and service.
The event concluded with an awards evening where leisure, fitness and health clubs were rewarded for a range of successes and best practice over the past 12 months.
Winners included Featherstone Sports Centre, who won Educational Club of the Year (Schools) and DC Leisure, who won the Leisure Centre Operator of the Year award at what is considered to be the most prestigious health and fitness facility awards.
Flame offered RAPs a great chance to catch-up with some familiar faces, as well as meet some new ones in what is a really exciting time for the Register.
If you managed to make it to Flame, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
