ABOUT LEGACY SPORT
There’s a revolution underway across the world of business. It’s being driven by a growing number of people who want to work for, buy from, invest in and advocate for organizations that stand for something more than just profits. And, it’s a world where those organizations that best respond to this expectation are outperforming those that don’t and where more and more people are embracing the idea that it is possible to do good while doing well.
We believe that the business of sport is not immune to all of this and that the brands, properties, athletes and non-profits that embrace this new reality will be the winners in the coming decades and that those that don’t, will become irrelevant.If you are an executive working in the business of sport, Legacy Sport will help you to understand and navigate this new world and build and execute strategies to help you and your organization remain relevant and successful in the age of social good.
Neill Duffy has, for 20 years, enabled global brands, international sports properties, and high-performing nonprofits to do good while doing well through sport.
Jo has over 20 years experience in the sports industry, working at leading agencies, including Octagon South Africa, as the head of strategy and sponsorship measurement.
Sustainability and legacy are no longer a choice for sport. With its global reach and universal appeal, sport has a unique power and a huge responsibility to raise public awareness and help the world and do its share of the work to address some of today’s critical challenges.

These have been collated to create The Legacy Sport Podcast Series as a companion resource to Legacy Sport. Each Podcast includes a 30-minute interview and provides an additional layer of insights to those already covered in the book itself.
