Rob Hartnett from Sport for Business will be on Newstalk Breakfast with Shane Coleman, Paul Williams and Oisín Langan at 0845 this morning to talk about the return to Dublin of the One Zero event taking place at Croke Park on October 17th.
Last year’s inaugural One Zero event brought together over 30 leading lights from the worlds of sport, performance and technology including Conor McGregor’s manager John Kavanagh, Rugby World Cup winning manager Sir Clive Woodward, Shane Lowry, Skins Chairman Jamie Fuller and US Olympic Team Head of Technology and Innovation Mounir Zok.
The event caused plenty of heat with the initial invitation to cyclist Lance Armstrong to participate in a no holds barred interview about his past and the future of his sport. Armstrong withdrew from the event the day before he was due on stage following reaction to an interview he had conducted on Newstalk’s Off The Ball programme in the run up to the event.
This year’s event is moving to Croke Park, recognised as a stadium of the future, and will once again involve a dynamic line up of opinion formers, innovators and thought leaders looking at how sport is developing in the present and the future for players, teams, media and fans.
There will be a strong international focus on the speakers and those attending. Last year’s event drew an audience from Ireland and the UK as well as Europe, the United States, the Middle East and Australia.
It has created a leadership event in sport for Ireland which has never previously existed.
More details on this year’s event and early booking can be found at www.one-zero.com.
