During our first global conversation in early April, we spoke with experts from every continent about the impact that COVID-19 continues to have on the world of sport. Out of this, we came across a big question: "How do we reset sport?", posed by Simon Chadwick, Director of Eurasian Sport at emLYON Business School.
In our next conversation, we start chipping away at this idea.
Resetting sport can mean many different things. How will sport operate moving forward? Can we take this moment to evaluate changes needed to make sport better? Will change actually happen?
On this episode we'll invite a panel of experts on to the show to talk sports around the globe and hit on the rumored return of baseball and sports in the USA, bringing back sport in Australia amidst players' concerns, and what COVID-19 means for women's sport and the fight for equality.
