Sporting Organisations

Inspiring leaders on and off the field

Sport is unquestionably big business. There are major sporting events that span entire cities and take months, even years, to build; athletes that boast sponsorship deals worth more than the GDP of some nations; and TV networks dedicated solely to broadcasting sporting events.

To succeed in this high profile, high revenue and highly competitive environment, sporting organisations must build high performing teams both on and off the field. Leaders must also have the skills and experience to navigate diverse challenges such as:

  • Delivering on the expectations of sponsors, members and other stakeholders
  • Managing mainstream and social media
  • Complex brand and reputation management
  • Attracting and retaining top talent
  • Negotiating competitive contracts
  • High levels of scrutiny around individual and team performance
  • Fanbase engagement
  • Being available to lead in a genuinely 24/7 environment.
