A Year-End Message From iSportconnect’s CEO

Wow, time does fly.

Can you believe that the Winter Olympics happened this year? PyeongChang feels like five years ago. Or is it just me, because iSportconnect has been so busy in 2018?

More to the point, we held our first Summit in Beijing and our first Summit in Madrid in 2018, both fantastic events with great speakers and, again, I can’t believe that they were months rather than years ago.

The important thing is at that those events, and at our other annual Summits in Lausanne and Dubai, and our many Masterclasses, we are always looking to the future. And it’s coming fast!

The year ahead is going to be a big one for major events – Rugby World Cup, ICC Cricket World Cup, FIBA Basketball World Cup, FIFA Women’s World Cup, to name a few.

I am pleased to say that we have featured top speakers from all those organisations in 2018, talking about 2019 and beyond.

But this message isn’t about people speaking. It’s about listening.

To you.

During 2018, we at iSportconnect have been listening carefully to members of our community. It has been a considered project to learn more about what you expect and want from iSportconnect as a networking platform (and let’s be clear, that is our raison d’être).

In 2019, in line with feedback, one of our top priorities will be the changes we are making in the way we do events, with improved formats, more stimulating content and enhanced networking opportunities. While continuing to enlist the most relevant and interesting speakers to share their ideas.

We also have a slew of new things we aim to do, including more and better video content, and we will keeping you up to date on those plans.

In the meantime, a big thanks to our many friends for your active participation, and to our partners for their continuing support and the valuable content that they make available to the community.

We will of course keep on listening, so please let us know your thoughts on what you would like to see and how we can be better in the New Year. iSportconnect is here to serve you, the members of our community.

All of us at iSportconnect extend our best wishes to you for this festive season.
