On the Pumpjack Dataworks Big Interview this week, we welcome Brett Gosper onto the show. The newly appointed Head of the NFL in UK & Europe, Brett was formerly CEO of World Rugby from 2012-2020, and prior to that one of the senior figures in the global advertising industry. A fine rugby player in his own right - who represented the Racing Club de France for 9 years - and had it not been for the mercurial brilliance of David Campese, could well have been a regular in the Wallaby set up.
The lads, together with our friends at SRI, are joined by 2 very senior sports leaders (Tom Harrison CEO of the ECB, Angus Kinnear CEO at Leeds U) to hear from the inside how difficult it is to manage in this industry in 2021. Events, dear boy, events. Listen how challenging it is to balance all the different stakeholders and forces of disruption. From the absolute inside. A wonderful insight.
