It is the hot topic off the field of play in sport at the moment and this Friday we will gather leaders from across the sporting and business spectrum for a special breakfast session looking at how Governance can and needs to be approached in sport.
The session is part of our Smart Minds Series of discussions and is jointly supported by 2Into3 and Mason, Hayes & Curran.
Among those who will share their views on the way things are and the way they might become are Maura Quinn, CEO of the Institute of Directors, Deirdre Garvey, CEO of The Wheel, Dennis O’Connor, Director of 2Into3 and Niamh Callaghan, Partner at Mason, Hayes & Curran.
The discussion, followed by an open Q & A will cover topics including:
* The current landscape with regard to Sporting Bodies and how that compares to the world of Charities
* Whether Self Governance is sufficient in the modern era of transparency
* How increased regulation would impact on the voluntary sector within sport at all levels
* What are the increased obligations that would apply and what other issues might come into play.
We currently have over 50 leaders from the sporting and business community coming along to enter the debate and to learn where it is heading.
They include senior representatives from the GAA, Paralympics Ireland, Swim Ireland, Horse Sport Ireland, the Gaelic Players Association, Special Olympics, Tennis Ireland, Basketball Ireland and Badminton Ireland, as well as from Mazars, BDO, Clubforce, Arthur Cox, the National Lottery, Crumlin Children’s Hospital, Carmichael Ireland, Core Media and others.
There are stil a limited number of places available but registration is essential.
The event will run from breakfast at 7-30 through to the discussion taking place between 0800 and 0930 on Friday morning at the offices of Mason, Hayes & Curran on Barrow Street in Dublin.
