Episode 17: Behind the scenes at the Leaders tenth anniversary party.

Leaders is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2017.

In July, we threw a little party at the Getty Images Gallery in central London. We brought drinks, an ice sculpture, a magician, a caricaturist, some cupcakes and a microphone. We used the microphone to record a series of backstage interviews for this podcast.

Casting an eye back at the milestone moments across the last ten years in the sports industry, and an eye forward to what the next ten years might bring, a variety of industry figures spoke their minds.

On the podcast, you’ll hear from:

Facebook’s EMEA Sports Partnerships Lead Jerry Newman on:

– Social VR

– Being a rights holder at heart

– The Facebook sports partnerships department view on Mark Zuckerberg’s potential run for president

Racecourse Media Group CEO Richard FitzGerald on:
