CCPR has appointed Goodform to assist in the development of its Enterprise Partners scheme. The scheme was introduced by CCPR to provide its members – the national governing and representative bodies of sport and recreation – with a variety of ‘approved suppliers’.
Through a series of networking events, regular communications and direct introductions the Enterprise Partners scheme puts its partners in touch with the organisations and individuals that they want to talk to. Companies have access to CCPR’s 270-strong membership of governing and representative bodies and associations in the UK, including sports associations like The FA, ECB, RFU and recreational organisations such as the Camping and Caravanning Club.
Before becoming an Enterprise Partner, companies will go through a due diligence process undertaken by CCPR who will then put them in the shop window for its members who are going out to tender or looking for new suppliers. Partners will be distinguished from other suppliers by having the ‘stamp of approval’ of CCPR.
Goodform is an existing Enterprise Partner and is therefore familiar with the scheme and its operation. Stuart Dalrymple, Managing Director of Goodform, commented:
“We have been an Enterprise Partner since 2003 and believe that there is a good opportunity to develop the scheme into a significant service for both sport’s governing bodies and a wide variety of businesses in the industry. We are delighted to have been appointed.”
Tim Lamb, Chief Executive of CCPR, said:
“We are really pleased to have joined forces with Goodform. It offers an experienced commercial team and significant expertise in the sports and leisure industry. Goodform also brings with it first-hand knowledge of the Enterprise Partners scheme, and its client roster – which includes many of our members – speaks for itself. There is increasing pressure on governing bodies to become more self-sufficient and I’m sure that this new relationship with Goodform will help them to do just that.”
