The One Zero Conference at the RDS on October 21st is bringing together one of the most influential groups of thought leaders in sport that Ireland has ever played host to.
From Alex Trickett, the Head of Sport at Twitter and James Grigg, Head of Content at the powerful Bleacher Report in the US on the changing world of sports media to a group of the most powerful investors in sport outlining their strategy; and the Head of Innovation and Technology with the United States Olympic Committee revealing some of the background work that went into producing 121 medals in Rio last month.
Keynote discussions with Sir Clive Woodward on how he used technology to change the face of rugby; with Shane Lowry on the rise from happy go lucky amateur to competing at the highest levels of golf and Lance Armstrong on his past and how the challenge of doping remains to this day.
Armstrong has naturally drawn the most attention, despite the strong focus on key areas in how sport will develop in the coming years.
Last night Rob Hartnett of Sport for Business, a co-founder of the One Zero event, had a robust debate with Paul Kimmage on The Last Word about why he believes it is important to hear directly from Armstrong his views on Therapeutic Use Exemptions and how sport is still struggling to come to terms in any real way with doping.
During the interview we revealed that the ‘no holds barred’ interview with Armstrong will be conducted by Ewan McKenna, former Irish Sports Journalist of the Year and contributor to a variety of international publications including ESPN and the New York Times.
