For the media

We believe that sport is one of the most powerful platforms available to help build a sustainable future. We had three goals in mind when we decided to write this book. The first goal was to amplify the contribution of sport to a sustainable future by helping fellow professionals working in the business of sport to understand how the world is changing around them. The second goal was to show how the more progressive leaders in sport are responding to these changes. And the last goal was to teach how brands, properties, athletes and nonprofits should best manage their role in sport in a way that will help them to remain relevant and commercially viable.

A Moment Of Awakening: Has Sport Finally Found A Higher Purpose Beyond Entertainment?

It has been a profound moment of awakening where sports has discovered a cause bigger than itself, and in the process found its purpose: to not only entertain us, but to also inspire us by showing moral courage.
