      York Sport Talks presents: Game Changers

      Game Changers: How leading organisations in Business and Sport Changed the rules of the game. ‘Game Changer ‘powerfully demonstrates how some organisations in business and sport have done more than raise their performance; they have also changed the rules of the game within their industry. It gives examples of the strategies that have emerged to accomplish this, and the challenges of executing them. This talk brings to life strategic management in business, sport and not-for-profit organisations. It explores many of the theories taught on MBA and other professional programmes through case studies from the worlds of sport and business, written by authors who have played a part in the change. Alistair Gray has spent much of his career in senior roles in these sectors and is supported by Sir Ian McGeechan and Stewart Regan who will assist in bringing a unique insight to the field, as well as providing attendees tools and techniques forimprovement in governance and performance.  The Game Changer is essential reading for both professionals looking for methods to improve their own performance and to embed strong principles of governance, business students looking for real-life lessons from practice and those with an interest in sport and business. Alistair Gray is the founder and Managing Director of Renaissance & Co, UK, and one of Europe’s leading strategic management consultants. He is also a lecturer on strategic management on the MBA programme atStrathclyde Business School, UK. A director of a number of companies, he has held a range of board positions in business and sport. Sir Ian McGeechan is a Scottish former Rugby Union player, grand slam winning coach and British and Irish Lions head coach in 1989, 1993, 1997 and 2009. An experienced Rugby club professional Sir Ian can draw upon his plethora of experience within the industry to deliver an insightful and motivational discussion. Baroness Sue Campbell (Video input) is Head of Women’s Football and the FA.  During her time as Chair of UK Sport, Baroness Campbell oversaw a step change in the delivery of British medals at the Olympics. She now takes forward The FA’s drive to increase girls and women’s grassroots football participation and generate further success among England’s elite women’s teams.
