Phillip Smith, CEO of Northampton Town FC Community Trust will present at the conference

CEO of Northampton Town FC Community Trust, Phillip Smith, will be one of the specialist speakers in CSR at the 14th EFDN #Morethanfootbal Conference in Breda.

Since taking up his post as CEO at Northampton Town FC Community Trust in 2017, Phill has doubled the organisations turnover, staff and the number of impactful programmes they deliver. Phill has over a decade of experience across the community, sport, education and health sectors with particular expertise in strategy development.

Phill is passionate about using the power of sport to make a positive difference in the communities he’s worked in. Prior to his current role, Phill worked for Leyton Orient Trust as Head of Health and Wellbeing where his work received both local and national recognition through the innovative approaches used to support the clubs fan base and wider community.

Phill will be sharing the journey of how Northampton Town FC Community Trust developed their new ‘more than football’ strategy – the roadmap for the organisations growth and development over the next three years. This presentation will describe how, as a small organisation with limited resources, Northampton Town FC community trust engaged with their local community, club and stakeholders to develop a meaningful strategy. It will explain how the community trust diversified their work from traditional football related activity to a wider portfolio of activity and will share the learning (good and bad) from this process.
