BCLP 2019 Sport Conference: Navigating "Icebergs" in the World of Sport
In recent years, the world of sports has faced a number of high profile, highly visible controversies and scandals, and there are almost certainly more challenges, both obvious and less foreseeable, to come. Please join Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner for this complimentary program as we dive below the surface and look at some of the biggest social and legal "icebergs" currently facing the sport sector, including doping, concussions and related protocols, SafeSport, match-fixing, and mental health. We will bring together senior experts in sport to share valuable insights, discuss recent market impacts and debate the changes that may take place in the sector over the coming year.
Panelists will join us from:
- Court of Arbitration for Sport
- Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health
- McLaren Global Sport Solutions
- SafeSport UK
- UK Anti-doping
James Cracknell OBE; former rowing World Champion and double Olympic Gold Medalist, will join us after the conference to bravely share his story of life and recovery after suffering a severely traumatic brain injury.
