No Holds Barred - April 2017

Podcast cover
Read more
No Holds Barred is the podcast from SB Weekly where three leading sports executives reveal their industry bugbears, question accepted wisdom, and try to make sense of the major developments currently impacting the global business of sport.

Each guest comes armed with a view on an industry topic that’s been piquing their interest over recent weeks, and in a short and impassioned pitch will explain exactly why they feel strongly about it, who’s going wrong and where, and what the implications could be for various sectors of the business.

Nothing’s off limits, and the person who argues their case the best will be declared No Holds Barred winner and receive something far better than a trophy - industry kudos.

In April 2017's No Holds Barred Matt Cutler is joined by Matt Rogan (Chairman of Two Circles and Executive Director at ESP Properties), Simon Banoub (Global Director of Marketing at Catapult Sports) and Richard Gillis (Founder of Unofficial Partner).

Topics discussed include:

- Why technology rarely solves rights-holder problems, and can actually cause more damage than good
- How and why the media needs to be more responsible when building stories around data
- Why 'passion' has become the default focus for lazy sponsorship activations.
