Lions Cricket in partnership with Richfield is proud to host regular thought-provoking debates; round table discussions; industry workshops; conferences and ‘TED’ lead talks. These discussions are hosted under the #ENGAGE called ‘The Richfield Thought Leadership Series’.
The Series is also sponsored by The Star Newspaper, Spier Wines, Konica Minolta Gauteng and the DP World Wanderers Stadium.
Why did the Lions Cricket Union embark on a thought provoking ‘Thought Leadership’ series?
A few years ago, Lions Cricket embarked on a journey to re-imagine its purpose. A purpose not only in sport but the role it can play within the society it exists in.
The world around us continues to pose multiple challenges that tend to stifle management thought processes and negate a plethora of opportunities that are within reach.
Management then initiated multiple internal discussions, commissioned various research,
interviewed various stakeholders, held multiple conferences and workshops with the aim of stretching old ideas beyond their traditional boundaries and create new perspectives.
The Richfield Thought Leadership Series forms part of enhancing our knowledge base. More importantly, this series serves as a foundation for us as a Union and others to expand and innovate; inspiring conversations that would have been otherwise lost or never started.
It is about unpacking various sorts of discussions which has brought about the need for bringing influential South African sports figures together in an effort that aims to conjure up solutions that ultimately pave the way for increased inclusivity in sport, so it continues to play the important role as a social unifier across our country.
