Tomorrow morning, February 1st, we will start to publish our list of the Sport for Business 30 Under 30 who will be among the next generation of Ireland’s sporting leaders.
We called for nominations from across sport and the Business around sport and we have been bowled over by the response to date.
We have received nominations from the worlds of Gaelic Games, Rugby, Soccer, High Performance, Golf, agencies involved in sports marketing, brands involved in sponsorship and some of the technical areas of sports performance.
We have always believed in the power of youth to effect change, and in the benefit of mentoring to develop potential.
This is an exciting adventure to put that belief into practice.
The criteria for submission is that the person should be working within the sports industry, or in a sponsorship or agency capacity that is bringing sport to life, and that they should be born in or after 1988.
We will identify those individuals over the coming weeks and provide a platform for them to share their thoughts on how Sport in Ireland can continue to develop.
We will build a programme of support based around the creation of a network of young leaders that could be of benefit to them throughout their working lives, and to our industry as a whole.
This is not the time to be shy, this is an opportunity to put forward those you have come across that have struck you as having real potential, or indeed for you to put yourself forward.
It’s not about where you are now. It’s all about where you could get to with the right breaks.
The nomination process is simple. A name and a few lines on why you or they could be one of our 30 Under 30 for 2018.
