Riots were a wake up call

by Liz Terry

Riots have rocked the nation and now that calm has been restored, the analysis begins and hopefully positive change will come.

IMSPA is born

by Liz Terry

Volunteering gets a boost

by Liz Terry

It's all change again in the world of sport as the new government's policies begin to kick in and the impact of Big Society thinking is felt. We debate the issues this will throw up for the industry in our Talkback feature in Sports Management 2011 issue 2 on page 22 and the general consensus is that sport is well placed to handle these challenges, just as it has dealt with the last 20 years of political shifting sands.

Cancer and the spa market

by Liz Terry

Find new models

by Liz Terry

The global recession has driven operators to look further afield for growth, prompting them to be more creative in identifying development and partnership opportunities. The recession has also inspired operators to be more outward-looking in their approach and we're seeing an acceleration in the number of projects that involve international collaboration. [more...]
