We will be live this morning from PwC’s Offices overlooking the River Liffey with 40 of the best and brightest young people working within sport.
The Live event celebrating this year’s Sport for Business 30 Under 30 will include conversation, networking and learning among 25 of this year’s group and ten returning from the first wave in 2018.
We will hear from Pippa Doyle of Littlewoods Ireland, Gary Stewart from Volleyball Ireland and Rachel Solon, Head of Sport at Legacy Communications, all of whom have featured on the 30 Under 30 about how they have built careers in and around sport.
We will have our talented young leaders of tomorrow look together at some of the thorniest issues facing sport in 2019 and perhaps putting some smart thinking into how they might be resolved.
We will also dive into research conducted among the group on issues as diverse as their degree of optimism about Irish sport in general, their views on the FAI Governance Review and how far we think Ireland can go in qualifying for the Euro’s and in the Rugby World Cup.
We will share the results of that survey and other highlights of the morning in the Sport for Business Daily Digest on Friday and through their social media channels and ours via #SportForBusinessPwC30Under30.
