August is too Late to Prepare for September Sales

If you do not already have plans in place (or actual meetings booked) with new schools and or planning/review meetings, you are missing a vital piece of your sales jigsaw.

Sales Sensei, Glenn Hoy will be presenting a GoToMeeting event week commencing 27 June – ‘How to Plan Effective Sales Campaigns’ to win new business and increase spend from existing schools.

It’s based on the activities of most of the leading franchisees that have ‘sales growth’ as an integral part of their 2016/17 strategy.

Strictly by ‘invitation only’ and numbers are limited to ensure full interaction, so if you want an invite please email Glenn to book your place: [email protected]

Summer Promotion in Full Swing!

This summer’s promotion in partnership with Chewits and backed by Chris Kamara is in full swing reaching thousands of new customers as well as delighting your loyal customer base.

The promotion has targeted mainly new customers by featuring in over 21 Local World (UK’s biggest regional newspaper publisher) publications up and down the county and is set for a national promotion in the Daily Star later this month. This is an unprecedented level of brand exposure as we continue to strengthen national domination!

We have of course promoted the offer to our existing customer base via social media and in last month’s parent newsletter, which will inevitably further strengthen your relationship when the promotion has come and gone.

HIGH IMPORTANCE Annual Quality and Impact Review of Provision

As highlighted in stage 4 of the PEG CQI process, all our partner schools will be asked to complete the online ‘Annual Quality and Impact Review of School Provision’ survey next week. To increase the number of schools completing the survey, we’ve sent this letter to headteachers informing them about the survey.

We’re asking schools to complete the survey by Friday 1st July.

So what would we like you to do? Help us to help you!

We’ll be monitoring the feedback, region by region, so would like you to politely encourage all your schools to complete the survey. The more data we receive the more accurate our findings will be. The results will allow us to guide our national development and future direction of support for Area Leaders, Activity Professionals, as well as contributing to the design and development of our school-based programs and systems for young people.

We’ll send you the link to the survey next week.

HIGH IMPORTANCE Delivering Excellence, Everywhere

Following on from the excellent article written by our Education Advisor, Yvonne Gandy titled ‘Education Excellence Everywhere’; we’ve created our very own ‘Audit Wheel’ for schools to access FREE of charge. This free tool measures and reviews the impact of their own PE and School Sport, whether that’s delivered with / by an external provider or by their own staff. We hope you find it useful and it can help you shape your school improvement plan for next year whilst also creating new and exciting opportunities for all pupils in your schools.

Below is a table to explain how and what we at PEG do to ensure we meet each criteria of the six headline areas from the report ‘Education Excellence, Everywhere’.
