Tony Farrar



Tony Farrar has spent almost two decades assisting UK government departments in designing and implementing policy communication strategies. In addition to successfully creating a public sector events subsidiary and founding a leading public policy communications business, he went on to co-found two new socially focused organisations, Why Sports and Govconnect. These organisations seek to deliver policy communications through a unique conference engagement model, whilst leaving a lasting legacy of social and financial contributions towards the policy ambitions being realised.

Tony is a firm believer that active environments and physical activity are fundamental human rights for all, irrespective of socioeconomic backgrounds, gender or age. As a father of two young daughters, physical literacy is paramount to him. The removal of barriers and associated stigmas related to physical activity, the creation of active communities and improving population health are now his main focus.

Tony is a Director of One Running Movement.
