The statement of An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar later today will either dampen or spark plans for a number of sporting bodies to prepare for the resumption of activity, albeit in a limited fashion.

We will have a special analysis of what it will mean for sport and how different bodies have reacted over the weekend so worth watching out for what will hopefully be good news.

On Tuesday morning next week, we will hold the first of a new series of Sponsorship masterclasses, with Paul Mallon of Paddy power and Vicki Donlon of Leopardstown racecourse. It promises to be a really good learning experience and places are filling up fast for what should be a good way to kick off the week after the Bank Holiday.

We have two great interviews in our Leadership series across High Performance and Rugby and will be bringing them to you on Wednesday and Thursday.

We are also working on our next virtual meetings.  You indicated that Business Planning was one of the areas that would be of greatest interest and most concern so we are working with a number of members to bring that to life with more detail early next week.

As we hit 20 in our listing of the Sport for Business 30 under 30 for 2020 we will also be bringing back our ‘alumni’ from 2018 and 2019 to get a sense of how those young leaders are feeling during these times of change and to see what they might present as a vision on how we will emerge.

If you featured on either of those lists and would like to get back together in a virtual sense, drop us an email and we will be in touch.

Stay safe over the weekend and why not take a look at a number of the virtual events taking place over the weekend that we have been covering here through the week.
