GSM Live: Threatcasting the Future of Sport (Video)

Today pandemics aren't a possibility, they are a certainty. At the same time, we are seeing a shifting moral mindset as injustice seen in the digital age is arming sports fans, players and front offices with new knowledge that is prompting demands for change... or else. So then, what threatens the future of sport? How should the world of sport be preparing? How do current policies like the Rooney Rule lessen or worsen possible threats? And what else are we missing? Threatcasting uses data and methodology to better predict and prepare for the future. In this episode, we talk with Brian David Johnson , Dr. Deborah Stroman, Kelvin Watt, and Global Sport Institute's Kenneth Shropshire about Threatcasting, innovation, and the shifting world of sport.
