Neil Peterson – Neil is Director and founder of Inside Track, a cultural and creative consultancy which focusses on helping clients – normally major UK and European Cities – to deliver positive social and economic changes though culture, creativity and sports and other participatory activities.
Neil has played a significant role in the development of the European Capital of Culture project over recent years, being a founding member of the ECoC network. He was a member of the Liverpool 2008 senior team where he led both the international relations work and programmes around volunteering, community participation and tourism benefits. His special experience is the understanding of role of culture and sport to encourage more creative and active participation in City life and finding practical ways to connect cultural and sporting programming with the wider economic development of major cities. He has advised several successful ECoC candidate cities and worked with other ECoCs on developing their programmes, especially on community development strategies and long term legacy.
Previously Neil had held a range of senior positions in the UK with an emphasis on creativity, employment and community development. He works with several leading creative organisations in the UK on strategy, funding and European partnership development. He also lectures in culture, sports and event management in several European universities.
