  • Helped to establish UK Coaching’s senior individuals as thought leaders by driving coverage around the UK Coaching Conference.

Marked uplift

In engagement across all social media channels


Across two years, Run have worked closely with UK Coaching to deliver an integrated plan to create and maximise major media moments designed to raise the profile of and celebrate coaching. This has been achieved via extensive national and regional media relations based around the brand as well as industry events, major research results, and by positioning UK Coaching and its executive team as thought leaders in the sports industry. This body of work has been supported by regular social media content planning and production to encourage new and younger audiences to engage with coaching.
