Sport inspires future leaders.

One of the UK's leading sports figures is to give a lecture on the need to embrace young leaders.

Sue Campbell, chairman of Sports UK and chairman of the Commonwealth Advisory Body on Sport, will give a talk called Young People, Sport and Leadership at Sunderland University's Darwin Building this Thursday.

The talk will look at ways of transferring the leadership skills of young people to all areas of school and how to make the best use of their talents as leaders.

Sue, an accomplished athlete, has coached a number of teams including the England netball team and England women's basketball team.

She was a non-political adviser to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Education and Skills between 2000 and 2003.

UK Sport works in partnership with other agencies to lead sport in the UK to world-class success.

It is responsible for managing a pounds 29m budget and is a statutory distributor of funds raised by the National Lottery.
