Talk Sport London returns in 2024 – With Black In Sport, Sports Interactive and much more
Olympians, Paralympians, sports broadcasters, and experts from across the business of sport will be coming together for Loughborough University London’s Talk Sport 2024. This year’s event promises to once more draw back the curtain of the business of sport and provide students and alumni with insight into the cutting edge topics in sport at this time.
Professor Jo Maher will open the event with a celebration of Loughborough University London’s Rising Stars in Sport with a special panel of alumni now creating waves in the business of sport.
Sue Anstiss MBE will then lead a panel looking at the huge commercial potential of women’s sport. Sue will be joined by folk working for IMG, More than Equal and West Ham United Women’s team Manager Rehanne Skinner.
Russ Seymour will be talking all things Sustainability in Sport with a panel including members from Edgbaston Stadiums sustainability team, CSM Live Formula E, London Marathon and Think Beyond.
Finally, supported by our partners Black in Sport and Sports Interactive there will be a special panel on Allyship in the business of sport. Olympian Abigail Irozuru will be joined by EDI consultants and staff from Fulham FC to discuss how allyship in the business of sport can be cultivated to create a better sports industry.
Ben Cole, Head of Future Space said “Sport is alive across Loughborough and no more so than here on our campus in London. We are excited to be bringing together a diverse and inclusive group of panellists to once again point the spotlight on the hot topics in sport. Events like this really help our students gain insight into what is happening in the business of sport. Even if you are not studying a sports degree there are amazing opportunities on offer.”
