Inaugural Sporting Directors Summit

Mon 9th Feb 2015 | Football Industry Events

Sporting Directors from a broad range of sports will come together for the first time to debate and define the role at an inaugural Global Summit in Manchester in April.

The event, organised by VSI, the company behind the Master’s in Sports Directorship course at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), has attracted an outstanding panel of experts to lead the discussions.

“We are firm in our belief that all sports organisations need to develop a vision, a philosophy and strategy to achieve success and that the Sporting Director is key to this,” explained VSI Director Tony Faulkner.

“The profile of this role is growing rapidly and we believe that those involved should have a platform. This Summit will provide that platform,” he added.

The debate at the Summit, which will take place at MMU on April 29, will be led by Kevin Roberts, Chair of Saatchi and Saatchi, whose vast experience includes working with the New Zealand All Blacks, the rugby world champions.

Alongside Kevin will be Ralf Rangnick, Sporting Director of Red Bull Saltzburg and Leipzig; Rick Parry, former CEO of Liverpool and of the Premier League; Brian Marwood, Managing Director of City Football Services; and Garry Cook, Chief Global Brand Officer at Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Admission to the summit is by invitation only and all enquires should be directed to Carolyn Bostock (carolyn@sportingdirectorship.com Tel: 0845 45 99 765)
