OUR VISION

Sport has a two-way relationship with society.

On one hand, it enjoys greater cultural and societal influence than ever before. The rise of the purpose economy, combined with the changing lifestyles of a new generation, is driving a new emphasis on sport’s capacity to positively impact the world.

But the world itself is changing. And the forces of economic, technological and societal disruption are also acting to reshape the future of sport and sports business.

It’s this relationship that sits at the heart of the Global Sports Week concept.

We believe it’s never been more important for the leaders of global sport, business and society to work together to maximize our collective potential and help create a better future for the world.
