Leadership Masterclass: “Real People Talking Honestly”

By Community | March 7, 2019

What makes iSportconnect events so special?

One delegate at the inaugural Leadership Masterclass yesterday put his finger on it this way. “What iSportconnect does really well is that you get people up on stage who are really human beings,” said Steve Furze of the Rugby Football Union. “They talk really honestly.”

That’s gratifying for the team at iSportconnect to hear, because bringing people together in an atmosphere that’s friendly and genuine is at the heart of our networking events.

In this video, you can get a sense of the success of yesterday’s gathering, hosted in very fine style by EY in London.

The Leadership Masterclass was something fresh and different. The speakers were outstanding, covering viewpoints from broadcasting, a football club and an international federation.
