Chris Sharman

Chris has been working in the leisure industry since 1995 and his experience to-date has seen him progress from delivering parties and holiday camps at his local sports centre to high profile national and international roles for both public and private sports, leisure and technology and organisations.

Starting in operations, Chris quickly progressed through the ranks of both public and private sector organisations before pre-opening and managing two leisure centres in Oxfordshire and The Cotswolds in 2002.

Children’s activities, childcare, sport (particularly football) and fitness have always been at the core of Chris’ work and since his move from General Management in 2004 and then the transition to launching his iKidz Training and Consultancy business in 2010, he has been responsible for developing innovative products and cutting edge brands for various high profile national and international organisations; such as Disney, Virgin Active, Thomas Cook, Challenger Sports, TopYa!, Fitpro and global children's TV show LazyTown.

Chris has a flair for creating financially profitable products, services and facilities that truly engage children of all ages, increasing participation whilst at the same time re-energising staff and coaches set the task of bringing his products to life.
