Scottish Cycling CEO Craig Burn will talk at the international conference in November, as a key speaker.
Burn joined Scottish Cycling as chief executive in 2011, bringing with him a sports management career spanning more than 20 years.
His experience in commercial leisure management and sports development across local, regional and national levels has brought key skills to a high-performing moderns sports governing body.
In his early career, Burn worked on leading programs and initiatives for Sports Scotland, where he successfully set up the country’s first ever Regional Sports Partnership. Currently, Burn is working with a strong senior management team to drive the organisation’s four-year strategy, which paves the way for its vision for the future of cycling.
Burn commented: “At Scottish CycIing, we strive to develop the sporting pathway across all disciplines and have been working hard, alongside our membership and stakeholders, to deliver inspirational success and provide opportunities to grow participation – whether that be club coaching, leisure or racing.
“I am looking forward to speaking at another Scottish Mountain Bike Conference to share the work that we have been doing, and what we aim to do over the coming years. Mountain biking is incredibly important to Scotland and therefore we must continue to grow the discipline in a sustainable and planned approach and work with the MTB sector to innovate, collaborate and demonstrate its wider societal impacts as part of our long-term strategy.”
Developing Mountain Biking In Scotland will be the lead organizer of the event after a successful conference in 2014, which attracted 230 delegates from 13 different countries.
